I cooked this recipe today. At first I was sceptical to how it would taste due to the lack of herbs. However on tasting it I thought it was rather good. The only amendments I would make to this recipe is to dice the carrot and not grate and maybe the inclusion of a few drops of worcestershire sauce. Overall a very cheap and tasty recipe. Better than a packet mix. Will definately cook again. - 02 Jun 2013
