The recipe as it is, was a little too bland for me.  But if you just keep adding the suggested spices until it is to your's pretty yummy!  I like to also through in some flour or cornstarch at the end to thicken it up all little.  It is definitely one of those healthy meals that leaves you feeling really good afterwards :)  I love this meal though and make it all the time!


Although tasty, this recipe turned out to be vegetable soup. 3 C stock turns it into soup. I think there must have been a typo here. Maybe it was to read 1/3C instead.
