    Nutritious and easy-to-prepare side dish, although next time I would probably add some vegetable stock for extra depth of flavour  -  25 Oct 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)

    Not bad. Had to add some extra water to it towards the end. Found it quite tasty though.  -  19 Jun 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)

    Altered ingredient amounts. I also used more tomatoes - seven normal sized ones. This was really yummy, a lovely fresh taste with the lemon and cumin.  -  27 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
