Esau's Pottage

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by TishT

This is one of those healthy vegetarian dishes I used to live on in the '80's during my health and fitness stage. Too bad I didn't stick with it. Still this is a great recipe and I have enjoyed it many times with several variations (Note: I'm guessing on the serving size...don't have that written down anywhere)

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.
