Great stuff! I loved it as is and Dh added hot sauce and rolled it up in a whole wheat tortilla. I tasted it before baking and preferred it baked. I'm thinking the process helped the flavors meld. I made half a recipe using the whole can of tomatoes and it filled a 2 quart casserole. Healthy and hearty as promised. Oh, and quite tasty.

I made the crockpot version of this and it is one of those great comfort recipes. Good stodgy comfort food especially good for winter weather. I didn't bother baking it. Thanks Tish!

Humble, healthful, filling, and 15 minutes in the pressure cooker! This is going to be just right for my annual modified fast, and when the fast is over, it'll be a good filling for burritos.

I loved this and can see using it as a base for many variations! This time I cooked it stovetop with the tomatoes and water, added 1/2 pkt of Knorr's dry veggie soup (leftover) and didn't add the yeast. It was delicious, not to mention versatile! This was also easy to throw together. I think the stated prep and cooking times are too long--more like 2 mins prep - wash the beans, measure the ingredients and open the can of tomatoes. If you only use the stovetop method, the cook time is reduced to 45 mins....so if you're looking for something healthy, filling, easy and fairly quick, don't let this one slip by!

A very versital pottage. Our son-in-law loves burritos, but also suffers from Crohn's disease so his diet really doesn't include them. We make this up, minus the yeast, and use it with corn tortillas. One would swear it was chock full of hamburger. Topped with a lil quacamole and salsa it certainly fills the bill. Thanks Tish for sharing.

I made a half recipe and used about 14-oz (half a 28-oz can), undrained of organic diced tomatoes. We love healthy stuff like this! Next time I might add some spices or maybe a diced onion, but it was fine as-is. Very easy. I used organic brown lentils and organic hulled barley (a little healthier and better texture, IMO) and organic soya. I did bake mine, but I don't think it was necessary. Next time I might just toss the tomatoes in with the lentils and grains while they cook. We served with Pickled Greens #76899 and Tom Douglas's Blueberry Corn Relish #40147 and had a delicious dinner. I will make this often- its so healthy, quite easy and open, like you said, to plenty of variations. Thanks for another great recipe, Tish!
