It wasn't bad, but we definitely won't be making it again. Not very much flavor (and I did use the garlic, parsley & hot sauce).

***If you're going to try this recipe anyway, I would suggest making pumpkin bread as well. It's very quick & easy to make, and if you break pieces of the pumpkin bread off and put it into this 'stew,' it does make it a little bit better.

This recipe was good but not great. The peanuts and the cilantro were needed to give it more flavor. We served it over barley the first night and brown rice the second. I think serving it over spinach or swiss chard would add more flavor. It froze well so we are still eating it but won't make again. There was nothing wrong with it. It just didn't inspire us to want to eat more. I did add two cloves of garlic based on previous reviews. My husband felt that a few drops of hot sauce greatly improved it.

My husband and I are trying to eat at least a couple meat-free meals a week and decided to try this recipe. We were a bit skeptical, because this is very different than the meals we usually make, but we absolutely loved it! Delicious! It's a great meal to come home to on a cold fall or winter night! I didn't use the saffron, because I didn't realize how expensive it is! I made similar substitutes as the other people who commented! Don't knock it till you try it! It's great!

This is fantastic! I made it with canned chickpeas, garlic (as suggested by several people), and sriracha. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. The lime, cilantro, and peanuts add so much flavor and texture and take it to the next level. I will definitely be making this again!
