This has great potential. However, the rice didn't stand out enough - there either needs to be a lot more, or you might as well just leave it out. I think next time I will leave it out, because you don't really need rice when you've already got tortillas! As for the tortillas, I think I will leave them whole in the future and just use more of them. The casserole fell apart too much for my taste when serving it (it ended up looking like chili on my plate); I think whole tortillas would help hold it together in layers a bit better. I only had two cans of beans instead of three, but I think that was more than sufficient, and I added LOTS more veggies because this recipe calls for so few. I love veggies, so I used two smallish onions, 3 peppers (red/yellow/green), a whole zucchini, and mushrooms. I wouldn't bother with the oil/marinade step. Why waste time/ingredients? Just saute the veggies in the seasoning. The yeast sauce was VERY good, though. I will definitely use that again. I like having vegan (if you take out the butter) recipes in my arsenal just in case I ever entertain vegans for dinner. And I love that this recipe calls for brown rice and whole wheat tortillas. I always substitute with whole grains in recipes anyway, but it's nice to see a recipe actually call for them. Thanks, David and Krista!
