This stew was amazing! Made it exactly as written. Nice complex combination of flavors. We had it with rice (didn't have any couscous on hand). Definitely a keeper and one that my husband has dubbed as his favorite soup/stew.

Our guests liked it a lot. A poll of the audience of 4 was a 3.9 so we rounded up to 4. Worthy of a causal occasion with friends. Plus it makes so much, you can have your friends over and still have leftovers. Cut the eggplant up small because it can be overpowering. Accidentally doubled the cinnamon but it didn't ruin the outcome. I will enjoy tweaking this recipe and making it my own.

This a hearty and satisfying dish. You can serve it as a side or as a main dish. My only complaint is that I it called for way more veggies than would actually fit in my pot! You might need bigger than a 5-quart.

Love this. I don't puree the veggies but just eat as is with no couscous or sour cream. It's delicious.

excellent! I omitted the beans and added chicken thighs to make this more "Paleo". The aroma was wonderful and so was the taste. If you want to serve this gluten free try it on white rice. and no sour cream.

This stew was awesome and surprisingly easy to make! I purchased my vegetables pre-chopped and put them straight into the slow cooker with the canned goods and broth. I sauteed the onions for five minutes, added the spices for 2 minutes, put about 1/2 cup of broth in the pan in order to make sure all the spices were sopped up and added it to the crockpot. I didn't add the coriander or currants because I couldn't find any at the grocery store. It was a hit at my work lunch.

This was amazing, one of my new favorites. I sautÃ©ed my onion with the garlic and spices. I only added 4 cups of chicken broth, and next time will cut it back to 3 or 3.5. I also blended 4 cups of vegetable mixture for a thicker stew. Absolutely delicious!

Did I do something wrong? This stew was absolutely vile!

This was ok, but surprisingly bland - surprised to see so many great reviews. If I make it again, I will definitely add more spices.

Some crock pot manufacturers DO NOT recommend starting foods in an 'all night refrigerated crock!!'

Loved the flavor and texture was great but wold to recommend cooking on High. Cooked on low for 6hrs and was definitely done. Great vegetarian or vegan recipe!

I didn't think I'd be one of the ones to rate this as "ok". I liked all the ingredients and it was easy to make. I made it as is, but it still tasted like something was "missing" from it. I ended up adding a whole lot more cinnamon and cumin to it. The currants didn't really add to it and they basically shrunk. The almonds didn't add anything either. I think the recipe has potential but for myself it needed some doctoring up. My vegetarian husband really liked it and said I could make it again. Am wondering if too much eggplant soaks up some of the flavors? I would maybe add butternut squash, a carrot or even a sweet potato to spice it up a little, and some red pepper flakes. My husband did put some red pepper sauce on his as he likes things hot.
