This was good. The flavor was even better the next day! I love all the fresh ingredients. I actually threw everything in the food processor then straight into the pan and just cooked everything together due to lack of time and it still turned out good.

Delicious! I added about a cup of pureed sweet potato for extra vitamins. My whole family likes it!

Very good but carrot flavor was a little too strong. Next time I would add only 1-2 carrots.

Added green and red pepper, then blended. Super super yummy. Worth the effort.
