This can be a hearty side dish or a meatless main course with a green salad and chunks of rye bread. Regular butter can be used with the same result.

I loved this recipe. I changed the ghee to one tablespoon of canola oil as ghee (which I like) contains more saturated fat. Instead of a fresh tomato I used canned diced tomato -- not the whole can of course -- I will definitely make this recipe again. Thank you.

This is a great recipe, easy to make and healthy too. I used two roma tomatoes instead of one medium tomato.

Had this for dinner tonight and even with the addition of coconut, it was pretty flavorless. The texture and appearance was also unappealing. The leftovers are going in the compost pail :-(
