Recipe by Wish I Could Cook

From the 2010 Vegetarian Times Chef's Challenge, this recipe by Mariano Gascon was voted "best appetizer." But it could easily be a main dish as well.

These are great. In fairness I modified slightly (pan fried instead of oven fried and substituted a bag of coleslaw mix for the vegies-both to save time) but loved the result. They are healthy, quick, and easy...gotta love that! Thanks for the great recipe Wish I Could Cook....
