This recipe was originally posted by Zenith, who is no longer active at Zaar. She was a wonderful chef, however, so when her recipes went up for adoption I grabbed as many as I could. This is one that had been in my cookbook for months and months, and I still haven't gotten around to trying it. She is greatly missed! Here's what she had to say about this recipe: "A quick and easy vegetarian meal, perfect when served over couscous."

A wonderful recipe. Be sure to look at step 3. I didn't exactly increase the spices, but I used heaping teaspoons instead of level teaspoons. This is a very simple and delicious dish.
