I gave it five stars. Easy to prepare, hearty, and delicious! So good I'd triple the recipe next time I make it.

I'd like it a little more thick but it was easy to make and healthy.

This was very good and very easy. I used the broccoli stalks that are usually thrown away and chopped small. Added a little black pepper and omitted the cumin. Very simple, very good. My husband wanted more but it only made 3 decent size servings.
