This is one of my favourites from growing up in Trinidad. It's a great vegetarian dish and very healthy, as it has high levels of proteins, is a good source of iron, and also contains dietary fiber, folate, and vitamin B1. It also freezes very well if made in large batches. I usually serve mine with rice.
