    Delicious! BUT made some changes: I used my slow cooker, doubled the curry and cumin, and used a lot more peanut butter, about a cup. Also added some red curry powder (for a bit of heat). Used diced tomatoes instead of crushed.

    Great! Used the instructions for the instant pot. Since the recipe calls for canned (cooked) chick peas, the recipe is fine as is for 2min at high pressure. I did use dried chick peas, cooked them separately first, and then cooked the recipe as written.

    DO NOT FOLLOW THE INSTANT POT INSTRUCTIONS. If you undercook chickpeas, it may make you sick. Do not just "bung it all in" and pressure cook for two minutes, you'll get ill. Under normal circumstances, chickpeas need 2.5 hours of cooking; in an Instant Pot, under pressure, they need at least 15-30 minutes. Sautee the onions, pepper and spices in coconut oil until the onions are golden brown. Add the rest of the ingredients, and pressure cook for around 30 minutes (15 minutes for the Instant Pot to warm up; 15 to thoroughly cook the ingredients). The recipe itself is really nice, but the Instant Pot instructions are a joke. Please be sensible if you're cooking this in an Instant Pot.

    Pretty good. Like many others it needs double the cumin, salt, and peanut butter. I also added red pepper flakes for a kick.

    Disgusting on the stovetop. Tasted like I heated up a can of tomato paste and tried to eat it with a spoon. Maybe the slow cooker makes that much of a difference, but following the stovetop directions exactly rendered slop that went directly into the garbage.

    Very good! Next time I’ll add some spice. It doesn't keep well. It tended to lose is flavor after a day or so, so I recommend eating it for freezing it quickly.

    So simple and delicious. Added extra peanut butter, but otherwise stuck to the recipe 🙂

    Tasty, but not very peanut-y. I added extra peanut butter, but think it could’ve used even more. Still very good!

    Carnivore Family raved over this vegan meal— will definitely make again!

    This was ok. It made 8 servings so I would definitely cut in half if I make it again, but keep the same amount of spices and double the salt. Couldn’t taste peanut butter. Couldn’t really taste anything in particular, but my boyfriend was a fan.

    This is a total keeper. It takes a bit of chopping the night before in order to make it easily during the week. Sweet with rich spices lots of texture but not hot. Don’t skip on the garnish it works well with the dish. Loved it! Some cayenne balanced w a dollop of Greek yogurt would be interesting too.

    Wonderful! I doubled the curry and cumin and added ground coriander. It was a success! I used half a bottle of stout beer instead of the broth, and it was even better.

    My husband really liked this, but I thought it could use more curry. Either I'll put in more spices or try to find a special curry for this dish.

    Pretty good. Not super memorable but still good. My husband added lime and an avocado (not super authentic) but it added a little more flavor. My kids took a few bites too which is always a plus!!
