      Quite good, thanks, Mia! Made as directed. I gave some to my neighbor, a vegetarian, and she loved it, too! Served over brown rice. For WT8

      Very tasty, although mine was pretty spicy because I forgot to seed the chiles before chopping them. I ate this with some naan (wanted rice, but didn't have enough time). I really enjoyed this, though. Thanks for posting! Made for The Honeys for ZWT8
