This was described in The Guardian newspaper as being like a roast vegetable curry. Good winter comfort food.

I love this dish. Not the quickest prep time because I used everything fresh from our Michigan farm stands, but worth it. I did leave the coriander out b/c I HATE cilantro and anything derived from it. I also used plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and it went well with the flavor of the dish. I even pureed some for my 7 month old!! Thanks.

Incredibly delicious, and I even forgot the sour cream, cilantro, and tabasco! I had a large 14.5 oz can of fire-roasted tomatoes that I used. This is a wonderful healthful recipe that will go into my keeper file!
