This recipe is wonderful! Instead of bread I topped it with polenta - I just bought the sort of pre-made polenta in a tube, then sliced it and layered it on top of the bean and vegetable mixture. The polenta browned up nicely in the oven, and it was great. My boyfriend is a vegetarian, so I'm always on the lookout for recipes that we'll both enjoy. This one was hearty and savory, and we loved it. I think the spices could also be easily altered to make it a "southwestern" bean casserole - next time I'll try chili powder and cumin and top it with cornbread mix. Wonderful!
This recipe takes a while to put together. I like the fact that it is very healthy. However, we found it very bland and added a shots of HP and barbecue sauce in our bowels. Next time I will add a few table spoons of these sauces to the recipe. It will also add some needed moisture.
My husband really liked this, and it's easy to make. I used a 7x11 casserole. I have no idea how you can fit 1/2 a pound of bread on the top, though. Next time I will try it with mashed potatoes instead of bread.
Good recipe for a cold night. I did swap out the french loaf for a whole wheat bread and added some romano with the parmesan.
I put this together and left it for the kids with baking instructions. There was nothing left when I got home and they all raved about it - they even washed the casserole dish!
I am surprised how good this is. These are the changes I made and I doubled the recipe. My 1.5 year old loves this: add chicken broth for water, add Italian seasoning for the spices, use can of the tomato paste, use one can Kidney beans and one can black beans, crumble the roll of polenta (no bread) on top and add Parmesan. Very yummy and good for you
Very yummy indeed. Thank you. I would even suggest having it as an accompanyment to a braai (guess you can tell I'm from South Africa)
The flavor was quite a surprise. I enjoyed it a lot and will be making it again.
