I made this for me and my kids. I left it the spice and the Onion as my daughter can't eat it. And I exchanged the peas for chopped green beans. She can't have those either. It's was delicious.

I had leftovers, so the next day whirled them in the blender with an extra cup of vegetable broth for soup. Delicious!

A nice base, but way too peppery for my taste, and not quite as hearty as I'd anticipated. I added lentils for a little heart. Next time, I'd reduce the pepper, do the lentils again, and possibly add some carrots. Definitely will warm you up, though.
