So tasty and easy to do! Had this as a side dish with Sue L's chole and some brown rice. Can't wait for lunch time, when I can attack the leftovers!

Tasty! I served it over basmati rice cooked in vegetable broth, with a side of plain yogurt w/ honey. Two Roma tomatoes in the dish was a little minimalist, but they were all I had on hand. I would make this again :)
