  1. Had this today with our vegetarian friends and they really loved it! Really happy? I added carrots for a different colour on the veggies

  2. I made this for dinner, with a few changes. Added carrot, bay leaf and a 1/2 cup of green lentils. Excluded zucchini and 1 chilli. It turned out AMAZING! This is a fantastic recipe that I will make again.
