      Hello! I stumbled upon this site and deiecdd to make this for dinner as I had a mountain of kale to use! I cheated and used chickpeas instead of kidney beans, added basil and coriander and extra garlic. Oh and I also added a capsicum chopped into chunky pieces (red bell pepper for you Americans) in place of the mushrooms.it turned out awesome! Looks beautiful and tastes even better I have packed a heap of it away in the freezer for future lunches and will definitely be making this again. Thanks!

      My mother uses cinnamon to help manage her diabetes and it works nicely. A coworker recently told me about turmeric so I've been trying to incorporate that one a bit more. This is a good list of beneficial spices.
