“This is my FAVORITE recipe!!!! It's healthy, ridiculously tasty, and takes less than 15 minutes to cook. It has the added bonus of being vegetarian, but it's just so good that I'll feed it to anyone and everyone! I got the recipe from Vegetarian Times, the original may be found at We've eaten this with rice, wheat tortillas, or by itself. Basically we just can't stop eating it! Just a warning to all those gringos out there, it's a little bit spicy. ;) In case zaar can't find all the ingredients, the basic nutritional info per serving is: 34 cal/14g protein/13g total fat/11g fiber/46g carbs”
