    I knew this recipe would not go over with my resident meat eaters so I added just 8 oz of diced turkey kielbasa. It was well received. A great hearty meal in one pot! - 11/13/07

    Making it again tonight - just 3 weeks later. I added the turkey kielbasa as suggested and used broth instead of water. Also doubled the recipe for leftovers. Worth it because it was SOOO good! - 3/31/12

    This was wonderful. I shared it with a friend and she loved it to. Low Cal and packed with nutritional goodies. We decided that the spicyness is determined by the power of the curry used. - 1/29/11

    I am not a big fan of spinach, even though I know I should eat more of it, so I made this, and it was really nice. I didnĀ“t have any sweet potato, so I left that out, and at the end I added some balsamic vinegar, that really made all the difference. - 1/19/09

  • I upped the curry powder but it was very tasty, filling and un believably filling. I served it with naan bread. - 7/19/11

  • This is my go to pantry meal when I have nothing else to make. It works well for leftover lunches too. I add a little berber powder to add some heat (about 1/2 tsp). If I have it, I saute some spicy sausage. It ups the calorie count, but it is wonderful! Serve with some cous cous or brown rice. - 5/9/11

  • I used low-sodium organic chicken broth and reduced the amount of onion (for digestion reasons). It was still delicious, filling, and inexpensive. - 2/8/10

  • I ate this for supper last night - pretty tasty, though without the frozen spinach I just added a bag of the prewashed fresh stuff 15 minutes from the end. I added Italian sausage for extra protein and didn't think it was at all bland. - 3/5/08
