Have not been able to click on the nutrition information and have it open, can you help?

Hi there! We're not showing any problems with the nutrition bar. We would suggest trying a different browser.

I really liked this recipe. However I used broccoli and cauliflower with the onion instead of the tomaotes, peppers and mushrooms because I do not like those three items. Mine got really black on the underside though and I had cooked it 10 minutes so next time I think I will go with the 8 minutes instead. Really good and I will make again and recommend to others.
