During the COVID-19 pandemic, this dish became a regular hospital delivery staple because of its comforting heartiness, abundance of flavor, but also the fact that it's meat free. We always offer a vegetarian option, but also try to make that option just as exciting as any meat-driven dish that we provide. We've also taken a version of this dish and added it to the current menu at Playa Provisions. That version is a bit more refined, but hits all the same notes.
