Simple, delicious vegetarian dish compliments of my MIL. It may seem like a lot of salt, but I think it adds a lot to the flavor of the dish.

Top Review by weekend cooker

A great lunch for myself, and my other half. Made recipe as written, except I left out the onion for us and the kids wanted the onion. Just added the onion for when they come home. Very flavorful too as the cumin, and other seasonings really complimented this meal. Made for Spring 2011 Spring Pick a chef.
