This dish is a very hearty, healthy main meal, perfect for cold days when a filling hot dinner is just what you need. It's SUPER low in fat, but full of all the good stuff. Another recipe from Jenny Stacey's What's Cooking Vegetarian. Feel free to use brown or wild rice if you prefer. I added a tiny bit of water with the vegetables & will be adding mushrooms when I make it next time. I think serving with some crusty bread would be a good idea.
