  • I just made this and it turned out really nice! I threw in the ingredients without measuring and I didnt have any zucchini but it still turned out quite nice. I also used a half a teaspoon of sugar because I didnt have any cinnamon. Great quick meal, very hearty and tasty! - 1/9/11

  • This was interesting, and tasty. We only had ground cumin and coriander (vs. seeds), which probably affected the flavor. The raisins made it truly delicious and I wish there had been more! - 5/6/09
