Began eating plant based meals only this past September. Found this recipe and it is a hit among my meat eater husband and son. It is an easy go to dinner, that makes a lot and everyone enjoys. I add salsa Verde to the top of each bowl, kicks it up a notch. Read More

I made this tonight and it was really good. I used Rotel tomatoes as mentioned by some others. We only had a 1/2 c of farro so I added about a half cup of quinoa about 10 minutes after the farro was cooking. I added a little more corn and some edemame. My husband and I both liked it and will make it again. Read More

Very delicious and satisfying! I used 2 full zucchini 2 ears of corn and a full red bell pepper. Everything else exactly as the recipe suggests. It s my first week on a plant based diet and I ve already made this recipe twice. Read More

This was great. We sliced up some chicken sausage and threw it in the mix but this dish would have definitely still been great without it. I'm putting this in my things to bring to a potluck rotation too. Will make again. Read More
