This was one of the very first vegetarian meals I made when The Hubster decided he wanted to go veg.

It was also one of the last nightshade-laden meals I had before learning they gave me wicked migraines and cold sores galore.

So it was only fitting that a mere four years later, when those pesky food intolerance went away, we’d go back to that iconic meal.

It was that good.

Kind of like the Chickpea and Tomato Pasta.

We served ours atop a bed of jasmine rice. You could serve yours on brown rice. Or coconut rice. Or quinoa. Or millet. The possibilities are endless.

And I would be totally remiss if I didn’t mention that this recipe was inspired by one over on Simply Recipes.

    1. Lou: He’s technically a pescetarian (eats fish and seafood). And I’m a dairy-free vegetarian in the house. So we tend to do a lot of vegetarian and vegan meals.

      It’s been easy for him — I do all the cooking — and he always has plenty of options when we go out to eat. He feels healthier than he has in years, lost about 30lbs in the transition, and has way more energy now. That makes it easy for him to stick with it.

      Let me know if you ever want to talk about making the transition. I’ve worked with a lot of veg-curious people, and can help make it less scary.
