I used to be a vegetarian in college and couldn't find enough recipes to satisfy my needs. I put this together and it was a wonderful addition to the college fare in the cafeteria!

An easy and delicious recipe! You can add any vegetables your family enjoys. I found a 1 pound bag of 7 beans which was nice. I will be keeping this in my roation during the cool winter days. Not just for Vegans! Thanks!!!
