Hey, this was a great quick dinner, and a nice change from rice. Thanks, Ruth - the kumquat and basil blend is a real winner!

Couldn't find kumquats at this time of year, so substituted strips of orange zest. Never having eaten a kumquat, I can't say how the zest compares, but it was good. It was a nice, quick weekday meal that everybody liked.

I used broccoli and mushrooms and didn't have tofu. This was easy, fast and I love the balance between the lemon juice, cumin and cayenne. Loved it!

None of us liked this dish. It only gets one star cause it's healthy eating.

This turned out very nice inspite of the fact that I did not have kumquats, onions and fresh basil:). Substituted lime pickle(without oil, speciality of North India) for kumquats and used dried basil. Thank you for a very interesting recipe.
