I wasn't sure how much I was going to like this recipe but the combination of flavors was amazing! I put it in the crockpot before work and came home to savory smells and a delicious meal! Even my non-veggie husband loved it! I made it with the kabocha squash but couldn't find any saffron and it was so good!

Followed it to the letter even did the saffron bored to tears after the first spoon full . I could not imagine eating twice.
i added a boatload of parm to mine at the table, which added a really nice salty + nutty flavor. really rounded things out. overall, i think this is a great dish to have in your winter weeknight repertoire.
It's just a one pot meal.... No definitive flavours. I would make it again on a cold day, when, as a vegetarian, I am looking for a bit of comfort food, but not that regularly
I don't know how I'm going to get my husband to eat because he's very picky about how his food looks. I loved it! If he doesn't like it, I'll be happy to keep it for packed lunches. More for me. I'm trying to eat less meat, and this is a perfect alternative for protein. Very filling!
