Pretty tasty, just a bit bland for me. My husband loved it. I used parsley instead of the mint and did not fry the onions first. I'm in agreement that frying them first would probably be a good idea to add more taste. It made A LOT of a very healthy and filling dish :-)

I made it by the recipe and found it good and hearty but missing something. When doing over I believe frying the onions first is necessary as well as adding some salt. Kudos on the easy prep!
