    Mmmmmm! Definitely on our make-it-again list! Didn't have it with the cabbage, though - instead, just steamed up some broccoli with butter.

    Delicious! I made with couliflower rice and coconut milk. So simple. So good!

    Oh my goodness! This was incredible. I made it with garam masala because I was out of curry and it was delicious. My family (who is very picky) raved!! Definitely a keeper!
