There are a few reasons why I love this recipe.
First reason: It tastes amazing with natural, basic ingredients, and without the need for heavy cream or other dairy. And you can make this nut free.
Second reason: It has an earthy flavor, and is earth-friendly since it’s plant-based.
Third reason: It’s so easy to make ahead and then pull together right before a meal.
Fourth reason: It requires no baking, and only a bit of sautéing, simmering, and a quick boil.
Fifth reason: It’s high in nutrients and low in carbs.
I added some substitution options in the recipe headnotes, and also note that you can easily make each part ahead of time and then bring it all together right before a meal. Enjoy!
