As some of you know by now I had my gullbladder removed a few weeks ago and am making myself some healthier dishes with the hope of loosing some weight. Tried this recipe a few days ago and asked my neighbor to join us. Well, this one is a keeper for sure. At first bite we all loved the taste and she asked me for the recipe. This is a perfect meatless dinner when paired with a salad and some whole-wheat bread.This would also make a great breakfast or brunch dish.
