First Time Trying This Recipe
We found this site during a search, and the recipe sounded appealing.
The recipe is well-written & easy to follow, and having just a few produce items in the fridge / accessible, you can get this meal prepared very quickly.
We read some of the reviews - noted it may be a little bland, as well as the caution to not try to spice it up. What to do?
We'll, we stuck to the recipe...and, yes, it was a little bland, but it provided a nice aromatic dish.
We served it over pearled couscous (vs serving w/ flat-bread), along with a nice salad. It was pleasantly filling, and I felt full afterward: we will have enough for a nice lunch (I like leftovers, think whatever you want).
We'd definitely return to this meal, although I think it could use a bit more flavoring. I might not drain the tomatoes (as it suggested), &/or simmer it a bit more, to allow the flavors to really meld. A shallot might be nice addition, with just a hint of clove.
Good luck & enjoy!
Pros: Easy, Healthy, Quick
Cons: A little bland
