This is so good!!!  Next time I will add some carrots or other veggies.  My hubby (a meat-eater) loved the sauce.  This will definitely be in my regular rotation!


This is SO good!!  I shared the recipe with my mom, and it is now one of her favorites (mine too!)
Sometimes I add chickpeas to it, which is especially good if you roast the chickpeas first to add a little crunch. YUM! 


This was soooo good! Will definately make again.  I doubled the non-sauce ingredients; tripled the sauce; added carrots with the potatoes and some chickpeas later with the kale; and swapped coconut sugar for brown.  Next time I will lightly coat the carrots and potatoes with olive oil and roast in the oven...I'm lazy:)  The boys in my life LOVE IT too...thanks for posting!!!



This was great.  My husband liked it too.


This was very, very tasty!!! Super easy to make, good flavor! Definitely a keeper!
