    Delicious! I’m not usually a fan of nutritional yeast, but the balance of flavours and the creaminess of this recipe are perfect. I also added a fresh chilli instead of 1/2 the capsicum, and I used almond milk instead of soy.

    Greate flavours! I actually don't love eggplant so swapped it out for zucchini and added mushroom with the capsicum etc. The lentils once added to that mixture are divine!

    Thanks for the recipe! Added some chopped beetroot leaves with the capsicum and served it with roast beetroot and a quick cashew cream. Made enough for 3 dinners and 3 lunches for the next day!
