I really enjoyed this!! Except i kept having to add salt... Next time i will add more salt before I pop it in the oven! I didnt use almonds(we are allergic to them), or add the Greek yogurt(I'm not a fan) but I added sweet potato and butternut!! It was a really good healthy meal! Will definately be making this again! Might just try it with yogurt next time.

Had it at a friend's house for the first time. I thought it was full of flavour. I have just bought all the ingredients to do it myself' I liked it so much' and appears so easy to make.

Great dish, might add more garlic next time. Hubby wasn't that keen on the yogurt, but I loved it. Will certainly cook this one again.

Tasty, healthy, easy to make. Very happy with this as a mid-week dinner :-)

I agree with Lexi - I didn't think this was great. Although others I made it for enjoyed it, I thought that the veg was too oily and that it lacked something. Perhaps I should've used more garlic, or something. Made Mixed Berry Charlotte for dessert (magazine-only at present) and was bit disappointed with that too. Never mind.

Good recipe for a midweek meal, I cooked it without changing anything and it was lovely, or maybe as part of a buffet like the lady who cooked it for 30 people. As for the printing, try it again Mitzi, I find his happens sometimes but on the second or third try its ok.

When I tried to print this recipe the list of ingredients had disappeared. Same thing happened with a chicken recipe last week! Is someone at BBCGFn ot settng the page properly?

I swopped the potato for sweet potato and added 4 cloves of garlic and 1 red chilli. I served it with quinoa and green olives. The dish was a nice mid week meal, but I don't think I will cook it again. Not enough oomph for me.
