Of course, the best thing about this recipe is that it is very flavorful and delicious, but it is also nutritious, low-calorie, low-fat and very satisfying which is so important when you are either trying to lose weight or simply trying to maintain your weight eating a healthy diet. I also love that this is vegan, quick, easy, inexpensive, very high in protein and very high in other important nutrients. There is a short list of ingredients which makes this inexpensive and quick to prepare. Perfect for after work or when you need a quick nutritious meal.
I enjoy the lightness of the this meal, especially after thanksgiving when you are feeling so full from a heavy meal. I feel the lightness and nutrition of the nutritious vegetables, and I love how there is no fat, oil, heavy cheese or a huge amount of starchy dough. Eating a vegan diet three days per week leaves me feeling so full of energy and healthier.
