It was good, it's nice to have warm, wintery dish that's full of spices and good for a cold winter day - but still vegetarian. We have a tendency to eat too much meat in the winter! Next time, I think I will apply Pamela's modifications - especially the substitution of brown rice and the reduction of cayenne. It was a tad more spicy than I go for.

Emma, I didn't make the quinoa as written, just the stew and I served it over plain quinoa once and brown rice the second time. The stew was a breeze to put together!

This seems so labor intensive! Is it just the number of ingredients that is throwing me off?

This was delicious with a few modifications. I dropped the cayenne to 1/8 tsp, added 1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas and a handful of golden raisins. Lastly I used chicken stock because I had some. I let it cook for 20 minutes longer than the recipe recommended.

I would definitely go for the chickpeas- sounds like a great idea!
