This dish was brought to our September 2007 potluck dinner by Ken Jaffe, our President. Several people requested the recipe, so we posted it here. NOTE: A member who made it said that she doubled the red pepper flakes, used 1 can of beans, used dried parsley, omitted the salt and pepper, and cooked it for an hour. Those changes are reflected in the recipe.
This recipe was one of the Thanksgiving recipes featured in our October/November 2007 newsletter. It was adapted from a recipe from PeTA and was found at http://www.boutell.com/vegetarian/thanksgiving.html.
This recipe was featured in our August/September 2007 newsletter. It was submitted by Susan Jaffe, R.D., C.D., VNA Vice President. She adapted the recipe from one in the book, Some Like It Hot by Robin Roberts. She says, "I have made this recipe many times for my family. I usually saute the red onion in a pan before serving. You can serve this recipe with grilled tempeh brushed with teriyaki sauce.
It is delicious and great for a hot summer night!"
