Made without the bellpeppers due to food allergy. Loved it! Very soft and creamy tasting - I think from the potatoes? Didn't do the egg this time.

What a great vegetable/spice combination. A stand out side dish. I used smoked paprika; that added to the flavor. I would suggst adding the garlic later on, as mine got burned by adding it first. I think you could get away with reducing the cooking time quite a bit, I really barely needed to continue cooking it at the last step.
