This was okay, but there are so many similar recipes that have worked better for me. I served it over brown rice. The sheer volume of the final product makes it unwieldy when you are the only one in the house that is a big veggie eater. I did discover that I like okra because of this recipe.
Very nice, I love mediterranean flavours. Being able to cook it in the slow cookers is a bonus.
I thought this was excellent. I added some potato, green pepper and turnip to it. I served it over rotini pasta and it was great. The leftovers will be served over rice tomorrow. Well worth cooking. But the prep time is far from 5 min when you have to peel, chop and scrape all those veggies!!
