    I'm surprised that this recipe has only a three star rating. It's very simple and delicious. I am a vegetarian and ate this on a piece of toast topped with tomato for lunch.

    This was an easy and terrific recipe. I have passed it along to friends and have made it several times. The bread can also be toasted on a griddle, if you are lucky enough to have one. That way, you do not add heat to your kitchen with a hot oven!
