    absolutely love this, so easy, filling and the family loves it even my 18 months old baby. finding vege mince is another story lol, since my baby is wheat/gluten intolerant it makes it difficult. I also add more spices such as cumin into the mix and yummy!  -  10 Oct 2010


    Something else. Excellent Recipe! I put everything in a slow cooker (sauteed garlic, onions & celery first) and left it on low all day until supper. Delish!!  -  24 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Excellent Recipe, here are my modifications: - used Veg Ground Round instead of text veg protein - added a little white wine and only 2 cups of water, not 4 - 2 cans of kidney beans used - 2 cloves of garlic only. I put everything in a crockpot (sauteed garlic, onions & celery first) and left it on low all day until supper. Delish!!  -  02 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
