This can serve as a one-dish meal. I'm posting for Zaar World Tour. The recipe is from a Moosewood cookbook.

This was absolutely delicious! My only complaint was that for me, there was not enough tomato flavor. Next time I make this, I'll probably use a 28oz can of diced tomatoes. Oh, I also didn't have mint, and used dried herbs and I thought it turned out very well. My non-vegan friends thought it was great as well. This would work well as a main dish or a side dish.

I added mushrooms, reduced the amount of other veggies & added another half a can of tomatoes. Very quick & easy!

I'm honestly not sure why, but when my bf and I made this it just seemed a little bland. It's possible I did something wrong but I followed the directions. It was a bit better the next day when I reheated it.
