Yum! This recipe is so flavorful and absolutely delicious. It's my second recent Martha recipe that included mint, and both have been superb. The mint adds a mystery flavor that brings this dish up a level in sophistication. My husband is a vegan, and after scouring my vegan recipe books for an appetizer for a party, I Googled Martha for some ideas. She has more great looking vegan recipes than all my cookbooks combined. Lesson: start with the chef, not the type of food! Delicious!!!
