Can someone please post the recipe? I tried it once when I got the magazine, but didn't clip it, so now I'm trying to find it (obviously I liked it!). But the website doesn't show the actual recipe.

I love this sauce, I made it because I had a vegetarian friend coming over, but I ended up liking it better than the non-vegetarian sauce. It's tangy, rich, earthy and delicious. I usually make a double batch so I can have leftovers.
