Excellent. This is a versatile dish. Collard greens and a few other greens like chard were used, as well as the sweet potato with peel. Coconut water was used and the remaining ounces were a nice drink. This became a very filling meal; hours later and I am still satisfied. It should freeze well - 3/9/09
My husband and I both really enjoyed this dish. My husband is not usually a huge fan of tempeh but he liked the tempeh in this dish. The lime zest and tomatoes kept the dish bright. I substituted spinach and fish sauce. I added the spinach very close to the end and covered it to aid in wilting. - 5/26/12
This was fabulous. In fact, I joined this site just so I could leave a review. I like my food strongly flavored so I doubled the garlic, ginger, curry paste, etc. But doubled or not, the combination of flavors is great. The coconut milk softens the tang of the tomatos. I can't stop eating it! - 4/15/12
