    EmJoMay's Note:

    This is my FAVORITE recipe!!!! It's healthy, ridiculously tasty, and takes less than 15 minutes to cook. It has the added bonus of being vegetarian, but it's just so good that I'll feed it to anyone and everyone! I got the recipe from Vegetarian Times, the original may be found at We've eaten this with rice, wheat tortillas, or by itself. Basically we just can't stop eating it! Just a warning to all those gringos out there, it's a little bit spicy. ;) In case zaar can't find all the ingredients, the basic nutritional info per serving is: 34 cal/14g protein/13g total fat/11g fiber/46g carbs

      Very easy, very delicious! I thought that sounded like an awful lot of leafy vegetables, but by the time they cooked down it was just right. Even the greens-haters ate them.

      Oh my heavens, this was delicious! I can absolutely see why you can't stop eating it; I couldn't, either! I served it with quinoa cooked in vegetable broth, which was a nice way to get a little extra protein. I was one carrot short, so I threw in a cup of green beans to make the difference. Also, I used 1 T (total) of coconut oil instead of olive oil as I figured it would deepen the flavor. All of this said, I did have a problem with the curry powder. As I was cooking I discovered I only had about 3/4 T curry powder so I had to think fast and throw in some green curry paste. I used the powder and about 1 t paste and got the perfect heat for my family (2 y/o DS needed his veggies "washed off" but oh well!). I am not usually such a gringa, so unless you like a really really kicky curry I might take the powder down to 2 T. Oh, and DON'T be tempted to cut back on the salt. It really made the recipe IMHO. Thanks for posting. Made for Healthy Choices ABC tag.
