This was very tasty! I baked the veggies in the marinade for ten minutes and then served them over cooked couscous. I will definitely make this again.

We tried this sauce on kabobs and grilled them. I didn't care for them, but everyone else thought they were good. I guess if we had more time, we would have tried a marinade and soaked the veggies, but since we had to make them quick, this seemed to work well. The sauce didn't have much zip.

This is one of the best sauces for vegetables I have ever tasted! And, so simple and easy to prepare. Grilled or baked, your vegetables come out tasting wonderful!

This recipe tastes much better than it sounds. I made it for a group of 4H kids with zucchini, squash, mushrooms, and tomatoes and they really liked it.

I used this on broccoli and cauliflower and the family loved it.

This was very good! We are not big fans of clove, but surprisingly this was an excellent recipe! We made beef kabobs with veggies and used this on mushrooms, zuchinni, yellow squash, red,yellow and green bell pepper and onion. They came out grilled to perfection! Of course we use a different marinade for the beef (beef or chicken marinade, listed in allrecipes too) Very tasty! Thanks for the recipe and making our tummies happy!
