Great! Easy and fast. I used extra turmeric and cayenne, and had no peas so I subbed in bell pepper. Yummy!

7-30-2016 ~Great flavor, pretty on the plate, this plays a great supporting role to any grilled or roasted meat or fish. I love the addition of both the carrots and the peas, which added color...

Really tasty - easy to make it the main if you don’t need meat!

Great side dish with falafel.
