I made this soup as written and it is delicious! It was a perfect dinner for a chilly night. I will make it again and add some chopped onion because I love onions, but other than that, it's great just as it is! Thanks for the great recipe!
I was so excited to try this recipe given the 5 star rating average. HOWEVER, after the 8 hours of anticipation, I was left very disappointed that the flavor was quite bland.
Not worth the time, $$, or effort. So sad. :(
Fantastic!!! Made according to recipe instructions except I added 1/2 onion and 2 veggie boullion cubes. Served with naan and Little Penguin Shiraz.
As I rate this, I'm snackin' on it for breakfast with some fresh baked bread. I added half a diced onion and a ton of chopped kale. Didn't have chili powder so I used extra cayenne and a bit too much of my favorite hot sauce. The final product was too spicy for my taste but a dollop of sour cream perfected it. This is a great recipe with lots of room to play with the ingredients. Next time I'm thinking of a mushroom medley in there.
After reading the other reviews I added kale and onions to this recipe. We served it over brown rice. Although everyone in my family ate this, no one asked me to make it again. It has a lot of flavor, but just seemed like something was missing and I'm not sure what. I put a splash of balsamic vinegar in my bowl and thought that improved the flavor a bit. If I ever cook this again I will probably try adding tomatoes to the recipe for a richer, tangier flavor.
I made this for dinner last night. It smelled so good cooking all day. I did add some onions, but other than that I fixed it as directed. My son loved it and took a large container home with him. I just had a bowl for lunch today and it was so delicious!
Great stew for a healthy appetite. Photo attached.
This was pretty good! I thought it would have a little more flavor. Next time I might use some vegetable stock. I didn't keep it on high for 8 hours- my slow cooker gets really hot. My husband was home all day watching it and I think he turned it to low or warm before the 8 hours were up, and it turned out well. We ate it with some flavored brown rice. Great for a cool fall night!
