The great thing about this recipe is you can tweak it to your liking. I used instant white rice to cut way down on cook time. Didn't have a jap pepper so added extra chili powder and crushed red to spice it up a bit, as well as a lot more curry powder. Used much less vegetable stock because of the instant rice and used garbanzo beans because it's all I had. Worked out great. The rice makes it filling enough for a meal in itself. Nice recipe

Excellent recipe! I used a jalapeno and madras curry powder so it was quite spicy. At the last minute I found out I was out of brown rice, so I used basmati rice. I used a whole green pepper and about 8 oz. of corn. I left out the cilantro and used a larger can of beans--maybe 20 oz. I also threw in some Boca "meatless ground beef"-soy crumbles. This made substantially more than four servings. My biggest pan was full. I left the veggies tender-crisp. Very tasty and satisfying.

Yum! This was really enjoyable and quite easy to make! I agree with others that this makes a good amount, but in my family that is always a good thing. I made this with great northern beans, and I subbed in some veggies I needed to use up (okra and green beans) in lieu of some of the corn and peppers. I love that this is so flavorful as is but mild enough for the kiddos; for me a shake of crushed red pepper at the table made it spot on. Thanks so much for posting!

Easy to prepare, but you definitely need a pan that can be covered! otherwise, the rice doesn't turn out as nicely. Next time, we'll probably add a little bit of tofu to the mix--and maybe some more heat!

Easy, comforting and makes a Iot (serves 6? 8?). The flavor is mild and would be appropriate for a wide variety of dinner guests (I added hot sauce to my portion). This is satisfying as written and I suspect would be great with chicken or pork too. I used cannelli beans and orange bell pepper in place of the red and green.

Very nice combination of flavours, not too spicy. I added shredded chicken, very tasty.

Ya mon, this is good! DS in particular raved about this. Seasonings are right on-bring on the curry-perfect amount. The three of us each had seconds and I have leftovers, so this easily feeds 6. I used yellow summer squash as I love them! I cannot buy either suggested bean here so subbed in pinto beans. I also put in an extra cup of chicken broth as the liquid was disappearing. I served this with Tia's Caribbean Fish Packets for a wonderful Caribbean meal. This would be very good with cooked bacon. Thanks Kumquat the Cat's Friend for sharing!

I wish I could give this more than 5 stars because it allowed me to feed my hubby zucchini (unheard of!) AND he wanted seconds. Luckily this recipe made such a big helping there was plenty for him to have as much as he could! I added some heat to mine in the form of chilli sauce but hubby thought the heat and seasonings were perfect as is! Thanks for the fantastic recipe Kumquat, I will be using this one often! Made for the Caribbean leg of ZWT5

Very filling. Says it serves 4- but I easily got 6 servings. My kids LOVED it. While I was fixing it, some of their friends who came to the front door wondered what the wonderful smell was. Great one dish meal.

A nice vegetarian dinner here. I left out the chili pepper because the kids won't eat spicy stuff. I used only 1 zuch., but a bit more corn and a bit more beans (cannelini). I loved how this was a one pot meal that used brown rice since most use white. The curry powder I used was obviously too mild because most of the flavor was gone. But we sprinkled this with Paul Prudhomme's Salt free seasoning and it was a very nice cheap and filling dinner. Thanks my friend!
