The whole family loved this! After I sauteed the veggies I threw them and all other ingredients except the pb into the crockpot. Put uncooked green pepper in at begiining as well. Sitirred in PB before serving.The only things I did differently were to use coconut oil instead of olive and doubled both the garlic and cayenne. It had an amazing flavor. Read More

I've decided to go vegan one day per week (already been vegetarian for several years). This dinner was amazing! So flavourful. I did make a few small changes: I cut down the onion (used half a large onion), and I added a can of chick peas. Served it over brown rice. Read More

Surprisingly fantastic stew. Stuck with all the ingredients listed and was so happy with the taste. Very simple and many ways to serve it up. Calling this my Feel-Good stew. Read More

Very delicious and easy to make! I did make a couple changes: one whole apple instead of apple juice and coconut oil instead of flakes (what I had on hand) and sunflower butter instead of peanut butter (allergy). I also put it on top of some brown rice. Will definitely be making this again! Read More

This is a very unusual dish but my husband and I thought it was delicious which is good because it makes a lot. I used the food processor to chop (pulse) the veges to speed the prep so it turned out more shredded than chunky which was fine. Also it didn't say to cover the pot while simmering so the result was a thick stew that I served over bulgar wheat. I ended up doubling the cayenne and adding 50 percent more ginger (I threw in some freshly grated as well). I didn't have tomato juice on hand so I used a 1:1 tomato sauce/water mixture. The only coconut I had was frozen shredded (available from Indian markets) so it disappeared into the stew and sadly was unnoticeable. Also there is no need to use oil to saute the veges because they release enough moisture themselves. Finally I used Kirkland brand natural smooth peanut butter which worked beautifully. Read More

I loved it. My husband on the other hand was not a fan. I made as is except used a peeled chopped apple in place of the apple juice. I also sprinkled each serving with crushed red pepper. Served over whole wheat pearl couscous. Freezes well. Great comfort food! Read More

This was really good with naan bread. I added extra cayenne ginger and garlic. I also pureed about 4 cups of the soup to make it thicker. I will definitely make this again! Read More
