Great find for a filling very tasty supper dish. However I think there is an error in the vegetable stock quantity. Having done this recipe twice now - it needs at least three times as much stock. We all loved the recipe and it will become a regular with us - 16 Jun 2013

very tasty and simple to make, agree with other comments, extra stock is needed as it was a bit dry. - 02 Jan 2016
