Loved it! So healthy, low calorie, so I could eat more and feel real good about my choice. Dont forget the vinegar, it adds a subtle twange. Used 1 red and 1 yellow onion. Used drained chopped canned spinach (what I had on hand), still was excellent!

Made this for a party and it was good. Better yet were the leftovers that we ate over rice--the flavors came together really well with time.

The smokiness really comes through and the crusty bread was great for soaking up all the great juices. I served it alongside a pan-grilled turkey and chicken sausage made with sun-dried tomatoes and gruyere cheese.

I have made this dish many times. It is easy and soooo delicious. I can't believe there is no added salt b/c it is so flavorful. The smoked paprika and fire roasted tomatoes are a must. I don't have sherry vinegar and used red wine vinegar. My husband really loves this one too!

Very good; the smoked paprika and fire-roasted tomatoes are delicious together with the other ingredients. I doubled this and served it as a main dish with a fried egg on top of each serving. I love that it's composed entirely of things I almost always have on hand, so I most certainly would make it again.

This was delicious and very easy to make! I cooked the onions and garlic with butter - instead of olive oil and cooked for a longer period of time and kept cooking it down and adding butter. It was very good.

This is great--it uses up my spinach if I overbuy, and my husband likes it as a gateway vegetable dish. You know those people who need to eat more veggies? Yep, that's us--and we liked this.

We make this over and over again. It is so good and so filling. We don't really make any changes other than using dry chickpeas instead of canned.

This was good. Shop around for the vinegar and smoked paprika. My regular grocery had a high price on both items. A $9 vinegar might be worth it, but not the first time you try it! World Market had them both for a more reasonable price. Since I hadn't used those spices before I didn't want to pay a lot in case I didn't like them.

This was a good solid recipe, but not knock your socks off. I spread some goat cheese on the bread which livened it up considerably. I also enjoyed the left overs for breakfast with a fried egg on top. I will put it in my rotation since it uses ingredients that I often have on hand.

Wow! The flavors were awesome! Served this as a main course over polenta with a balsamic pear salad (CL favorite from eons ago) on the side. Hubbie raved! Great vegan dish...who needs meat when beans and veggies can taste so good!
