Thanks Den, I might try some of the leftovers for lunch tomorrow :-)) :D

MF, I didn't use okra, mainly because I don't know what it is ;D ;D ;D

Don't feel pressured to try it Amy. I know it is probably a bit different to your usual diet.

Okra is one of those vegetables that you either love or hate.  I think it originally came from Africa.

I love okra Amy but as DD says its oe of those veggies that you either love or hate. You must try it.
When I visited my SIL's family in Zimbabwe they had okra on the buffet lunch for our welcome. I said I love Okra so they came around and poured it into a bowl and gave me a spoon. It was gooey slime no texture at all. I was nearly sick but felt obliged to eat some as I had shot myself in the foot by saying how much I liked it :o
We like spinach and okra curry but don't reduce it to slime.  My SIL can't eat it the way we like it  :-\

This is the best!!! Yummo!

I made some minor adjustments as i wanted to use up what i had in the fridge and pantry! I had no peanuts or peanut butter, so I made cashew nut butter with raw cashews and macadamia oil, I used 250g diced pumpkin instead of sweet potato, I increased quinoa to 3/4 cup, I used chickpeas instead of kidney beans and lastly I pan fried 400g diced beef and stirred through at the end.

Definitely making again :)
