Boring. I don't like tomatos, so I only used 16oz of tomatos and supplemented with corn, Boca crumblings and more onions, green peppers and garlic. Served over nice nutty wild rice which improved it.

My husband & I loved it. Easy, hearty, and tasty. This recipe has a good combination of spices which can still be altered to taste. Just the right amount of carrot to sweeten it. And a short cooking time to prevent vegetables from getting mushy. We did cheat by putting a small amount of grated cheese on our individual bowls.
