We agreed with another commenter, that this recipe is a little too bland. We added fresh garlic, a diced jalapeno pepper and 1/4 tsp. ground turmeric, which perked it up wonderfully!

I made this with dried beans (15 bean) and added garlic, worchester sauce, and a cayenne pepper. It was much more flavorful and I don't think I added much caloriewise. (You have to soak the beans overnight first though.)

The recipe is hearty and filling, but a little bland.
