    This was so good, I made it twice this month. It's even good cold, or heated up in a tortilla. I also halved the recipe the second time, broiling the vegies in a toaster oven with the same great results.

    Yum! I've got whole wheat pita chips to go with this, too. The intro says it will last in the fridge up to four days. I wonder if we can eat it all that quickly... I think I'll try halving the recipe.
