We’ve made this a few times now and it always goes down a treat! When cooking this recipe, it is one of the rare occasions we let our toddler have some cheese, and it’s definitely one of his favorite meals.

Although, he tends to pick out the broccoli first, which always makes me proud haha.

  1. Not bad, I had to add to the spices to give some real flavor….lots garlic, chili power, parsley, mushroom powder, tummeric…was put of cumin…adjust to what u like! But overall Yum!!!

    1. We like keeping things simple for the most part, and when we cook recipes from other bloggers we also tend to add or remove spices to adjust to our own taste! That’s the great thing about cooking – using your creativity! Glad you found inspiration with this recipe and made it your own!

  2. I was looking for a quick and easy weeknight dinner and I can only say: this was amazing. I was positively surprised by the flavours, it was sooo good (and i actually cooked it pretty much just like in the recipe, which i usually don’t do)!I will definitely cook this again. Overall a great recipe, keep up the great work!

    1. Thank you so much for the great review, Sandra! This is one of our personal favorite easy weeknight dinners as well – even our two year old gets excited when we cook it haha! Have a great day!
