    Excellent recipe, just one problem - a little bit too large! Too big to stir in my largest saucepan, only just fitted into my slow cooker and overflowed slightly while cooking! Made a good helping though, with another for the freezer.  -  24 May 2010


    Some of the steps are unusual but it turned out to be very good. I added a bunch of kale and a couple of broccoli stems, with no regrets. We ate it over rice the first time and with slices of polenta the second time, and we enjoyed both. Ingredients fitted well in my slow cooker, about 8-10 servings. Suggestion: find ways to improve the visual presentation (colour not great).  -  24 Apr 2014


    Made this today for my vegetarian daughter and she thought it so tasty. She asked for seconds. Made it on the hob in a deep saute pan rather than in the slow cooker though. Lovely mixture of tastes and textures. Can be made mild, medium or hot as requested - she likes it mild. Thanks for posting.  -  03 Feb 2018
