This is very tasty and satisfying - served with a few ginger-roasted vegetables it makes a delicious, easy, one-dish meal for a cold day. Warms up the insides!

This was different for me trying it and was pleasantly surprised how good. Mad for PAC 2010. I really liked it. I did follow exactly, even the organic requirements as I thought that was important. I did roast some veggies with a ginger taste and grilled some fresh fish as well. The combo was very good. My only thought, is that the recipe needed a fresh herb, maybe the thyme to brighten it up. It was seasoned well, but I wanted a fresh taste is all. But still very good. Love the peppers and the anise to make an interesting flavor. Thx Kim
