This is a really easy recipe to put together, and it has a lot of flavor. My only change was to add a bit of salt at the end to make the flavors shine. It was warm and comforting, and the blend of spices was perfect. I forgot when I was making it that I was cooking from a low-carb cookbook and I served it on top of rice. Oops haha! I’ll definitely make this one again. I really enjoyed it!
