  • It was very good but in the future I think I will sauté the vegetables first as they were still crunchy after simmering for 45 minutes. Also I added 1/2 teaspoon of salt. - 2/15/16

  • I served this as is - delicious! A part from the green pepper, I thought I'd stuck to the recipe but as I look back, I realize I forgot to add the onion (fool!) Still, it was full of flavour and very filling! Delicious. Will make again. - 9/4/13
