From Vegetarian Times. Serve with a dollop of olive tapenade, sun dried tomato pesto or sour cream. Can be made ahead of time and then warmed in the oven.

I went to a friends last week and got this recipe from her Veg times mag. I was excited to see it posted. Made these last night and even my picky hubby commented on how good they were! We just had them with black bean, cheese and sour cream. yummy! Tonight I am going to make a black bean soup to finish them up with. Love it!!
