My mom first made this for me when I became a gluten free vegan. Since then I have put my own spin on the original recipe and really love it with a bit of mexican flair. I now have the recipe in my email because I get so many requests for it, all I have to do is forward it. I have also tried to lighten it up and often will use less oil. I have also been known to add about 1/4 tsp. of stevia when veggies are not in season and need a little help.
