Comments on this Recipe

Love this. I have sent this recipe to all my vegan friends. I sauté green peppers and onions and put it in the mixture and leave out onion powder. I put avocado on top.

Nice dish

Better yet use all fresh ingredients - warm in microwave to heat - don't cook on stove or in oil - less fat - taste better add mango
