Substitutions / additions:
You can add a pre-cooked meat to this dish in the last hour. I liked using precooked meatballs or cooked sausage. One pound is enough.
Add .5 oz Portobello mushroom (dried) Soak before chopping to this dish for extra flavor and depth.
You can also add 1 teaspoon dried rosemary for more herb flavors to the recipe. Be sure to break the dried rosemary up into small pieces.
Instead of black beans, you can add 1 can of Red beans.
