I grew up eating this- usually every Friday, because my family doesn't eat meat on Fridays. Its so good, I personally consider it comfort food. Its healthy, simple, and full of fiber! I often eat leftovers in a sandwich with veggies. Goes well with olives, pita bread, raw onion, celery, carrots, lettuce.
