This turned out amazing! I even invited my friend over to share this with me. I substituted farro for breadcrumbs, powdered garlic for real garlic, and broccoli for carrots (as compared to the original recipe), just because those are things I needed to use up. This Moosewood book has never failed me. If ever you have a vegetarian friend, or someone who doesn't know what vegetarians eat besides salads, give them a copy of the New Moosewood. Healthy, delicious vegetarian dishes with common ingredients, and simple instructions.
