  1. This was absolutely delicious! My only complaint was that for me, there was not enough tomato flavor. Next time I make this, I'll probably use a 28oz can of diced tomatoes. Oh, I also didn't have mint, and used dried herbs and I thought it turned out very well. My non-vegan friends thought it was great as well. This would work well as a main dish or a side dish.
  2. I added mushrooms, reduced the amount of other veggies & added another half a can of tomatoes. Very quick & easy!
  3. I'm honestly not sure why, but when my bf and I made this it just seemed a little bland. It's possible I did something wrong but I followed the directions. It was a bit better the next day when I reheated it.
  4. This makes a great vegetarian dish. I was a little shy on the carrots and decided to leave out the zucchini as I served this with a side dish of zucchini. The fresh herbs add a wonderful blend of flavors. This is an attractive dish and goes together very quickly.
  5. I love this dish! I ran out of fresh mint so I had to omit it, I will surely add it in the next time I make it, I increased the garlic and olive oil and added in a couple teaspoons dried chili flakes for some heat. Thanks Bunny Mom, delicious dish!...Kitten:)
