NOTES : A few years ago I worked at Washington University with a group of vegetarian students who traded their favorite recipes. My family and friends enjoyed this particular dish so much that I still take it to lunch parties and serve it at home with some pita bread. -- Annette S. Liebman, St. Louis, Missouri.
