I thought this was fine... it is quick and easy.  don't eat it without rice, it doesn't taste very good.  (naan might work too, like the author says.)

I made this for my DH who is a confirmed meat-eater and he loved it! Now you know it *has* to be good when he says, with a little rice who will need the meat?  :o

In the words of Orinoco Womble: Yummm-mmee! Mme Cholet couldn't have done it better. (Uh...that's a compliment where I come from...) ;D

Very tasty and very quick! And portable. This suited my wife and I perfectly for a visit to my parents house. You see, I come from a decidedly non-vegan family, and this was an easy to transport dish. We brought the ingredients, cooked it quick and easy and enjoyed it a ton!

So now it goes into regular rotation at the homestead.

(Note: I accidentally grabbed the McCormick's Hot & Spicy Mexican Style Chili Powder, instead of the regular stuff... added a good, tasty bit of kick. Something to consider if you like it a bit spicier.)
