I love this dish! And that's saying a lot since there is no meat in it :) Makes a hearty meal. Original recipe found in "Land O Lakes Occasionally Vegetarian Recipe Collection". Even though it's from Land O Lakes, don't look for butter in this recipe - it's not there

It was very good, but I think it needed more of a kick, more spice. I added some banana peppers to make it hotter, but it only added to the flavor, which ended up wonderfully. Next time I make it, I will perhaps add some hot sauce, too. :)

This was delicious! I made it for a small group that came over to my house for Bible study, and they are all DEFINATELY meat eaters, but they raved about this meal anyway. I did do some changes tho. I used brown rice, which made it take longer to cook. I also added about a teaspoon each of chili powder, cumin, basil, and marjoram at the point where you add the paprika. I also added some Kale near the beginning. I am already planning to make this again soon. Thanks for the yummy recipe! ~Lacy

This is great! I didnt use eggplant or carrots but I added asparagus and brocolli. I put the asparagus in where the carrots are and the brocolli was frozen so I added it with the peas. If you like it spicy as my bf and I do then add red pepper flakes at the end. This is a great meal. Oh, I have made this twice, once with shrimp and once with chicken. Precooked shrimp go in just after the frozen peas. Chicken same when cooked
