Great recipe. Followed recipe with these adjustments: used a squash that I already had roasted so I didn't need the full 20-25 minutes, I diced the onion, and I used half veg broth and half chicken broth with a splash of white wine. There are just 2 of us, so we had plenty of leftovers for another dinner this week. I will definitely make again, but will increase the amount of cumin and coriander for more flavor like the other reviewer.
