Fist I thought that this was a meatball recipe with green beans and carrots in tomato sauce.
At the end I%u2019ve decided to change the recipe: I really prepared meatballs adding the same spices and some more ingredients, but I%u2019ve used your recipe as base. It was delicious.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Easy and DELICIOUS. I actually made a vegetarian version of this with Morningstar Recipe Crumbles. The only changes I made was that I used a full teaspoon of ginger, the juice of one lemon and two cans of tomatoes instead of one. My husband loved it and so did I! I served it with homemade Naan, sliced onions and tomatoes and a drizzle of Harissa.

Simple easy, has vegetables.

I doubled the recipe, because I had meat I needed to use. Unfortunately I did not have turmeric, and had to settle with some curry powder that had a lot of turmeric in it.

I did add a little spice (rotel canned tomatoes, Cajun seasoning, and added onion powder).

I really want to do this again and follow the recipe exactly, because I feel like it would be a bit better and different than my normal fare.

This has become a staple in my kitchen. Everybody loves it. My kids call it "Moroccan Hamburger Helper". It is easy to make, goes with any kind of grain or bread, and beats the heck out of anything from a box. We love it. (stick to the exact recipe and you will not be disappointed!)

I added 1 tsp Baharat Aka Middle East Mixed Spices - the Real Mix, the result was alright but I don't think I will make this again. I did not add the carrots and added an extra clove garlic. I used tomato paste and water for the tomatoes. I do recommend eating this with a thick flat bread, not rice.

Easy, healthy, tasty ... I totally forgot the lemon juice, which would have been the perfect finishing touch. It was excellent anyway. Served with Spiced Couscous and it was a beautiful, easy meal. Like most of the others, I did add a little extra spice (a heaping tsp of Herbie's Chermoula Mix).

We enjoyed this. I'm not even a big green bean fan, but this was delicious. Served it with french bread and finished the meal by mopping my plate. Thanks!!

Very easy to prepare. Added several squidges of harissa paste to spice it up. Very tasty. Ended up inventing a flat bread to dunk in it! Many thanks!

Great taste, I added some Ras'el Hanout for more flavour and it was a perfect meal! I served it with couscous as I didn't have any flatbread! Will definitely make this again! Thanks for posting!
