This was cooked for us by our fabulous friends in Melbourne, Dave and Larissa. It is delicious.

I love this recipe - it's super-easy to make, anyone could do it - and it's delicious. I cut up the sweet potatoes and throw them in the pot, rather than baking them, and add a lot more cilantro, and my whole family loves it. Great for non-vegetarians, too, because it's hearty enough that they don't miss the meat. I fin that this recipe is more like 6 servings as well.
This was delicious! I didn't cook the vegetables as long as directed: I cooked the stock & tomatoes about 5 mins then added the beans & corn for 5 minutes then the peppers & zucchini for 5 minutes just to soften. It worked very well. This is a bit high in carbs but is yummy enough to have on occasion. Thanks! Made for PAC 9/07.
