    Used different ingredients. To be honest I tweaked this beyond all recognition! I used this recipe as the base, but as I grow my own veg I just used what was available from the garden: I used red cabbage, leeks, borlotti beans, chard, onions & carrots. I also used VICTORIAQUINN2146's suggestion of the tinned tomatoes as well as SUZPEM's suggestion of thyme, oregano, garlic & extra virgin olive oil. Oh and I also added a dash of Tabasco and a couple of shakes of Worcester Sauce. The net result was delicious, if nothing like the original!! (Sorry PEGW). I do think that it could do with some extra depth however, perhaps a beef stock cube or maybe a squeeze of tomato puree if you wanted to keep it vegetarian.  -  09 Oct 2009


    Used different ingredients. Peg..This is delicious!! My partner gobbled it up and he is not a veggie fan! I also substituted tinned tomatoes for fresh and, as you suggested, added a variety of vegtables I like. I added lots of pepper and some vegtable stock to spice it up a bit. What I really liked was that it was simple and I had everything I needed without having to go to the supermarket. Hope this helps a stone melt away!  -  24 Jul 2008


    I really like this recipe. I make it and put 1 serving portions in a freezer bag then reheat them about 1-2 times a week to help cut down on the calories Im sure Im loading up on durring the week. Its good and it makes me full without all the unwanted calories!  -  24 Jul 2008
