    Neither of us enjoyed this at all. Made it exactly as written. There wasn't any flavor... very bland. Full disclosure, we tend to like foods that are spicy and/or full of flavor, and this wasn't either of those. Maybe I'll add some spicy shrimp or some chorizo.

    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

    I thought this was a good recipe as well. I left out the eggplant and added some shrimp. It made a ton of food, perfect for left-over lunches later on in the week.
