I can't understand how this can be a great dish for vegetarians. It contains beef seasoning. What are they thinking? Just because a recipe doesn't have chunks of meat doesn't make it vegetarian.

Hi Julia, in the recipe the beef seasoning that is being used is by mckay's their seasonings do not contain meat or meat byproducts and they are also MSG free. Mckay's has been manufacturing vegetarian chicken and beef seasonings since 1945. Give this dish a try, you will love it for sure!
