      This is a really hearty vegetarian stew and with the pita wedges it made a lovely dinner and tasted just as good the next day for lunch.

      Great tasty recipe that was quick and easy to put together. Used frozen spinach as I didn't have fresh and dropped the cumin as the curry powder I was using already contained it. Will definately make this one again
