    Quite delicious! I needed to add an extra minute to the cooker to tenderize the potatoes but other than that, this was great. Oh, I also added garlic in the beginning with the onion.

    Super easy and tasty! 3 minutes was too long for my tastes tho, i like my veggies a bit more firm. They came out really really soft…..like, mashable soft. I’m thinking maybe 1 minute………we shall seeeee! Def making again!

    Really simple and quick recipe. I didn’t have any fresh tomatoes, so I substituted a tin of diced ones. That being the case, I should have left out the 1/4 cup of water, since the tomatoes added a lot of extra liquid.

    I’ll continue to tweak this recipe to my personal taste, but ‘as is’ it’s wonderful.

    This recipe was great! Tasty. Only thing I recommend is cooking for two minutes rather than three as my dish came out way too soft, almost mushy. But overall will make again! Thanks for the recipe!

    At first I thought the cauliflower was too cooked, but it was actually perfect! Even better as leftovers.

    Great flavour. Next time i would double the recipe and try cooking for only 1 min as i found the vegetables too soft after 2 min.

    So good! And so easy!
    I took the comments and cooked for only 2 minutes. Consistency was perfect.
    And I too used a can of diced tomatoes. I added maybe 1/8 a cup water. Yum. I’ll definitely make this again.
