This two-bean tomato bake is just what the doctor ordered when you need to atone for overeating

Are you feeling a bit gross? Ate too much pizza? Too many nights ordering in? You might be in need of vegetable therapy. A tasty one-dish meal made entirely of vegetables and legumes --OK, and just a sprinkling of cheese -- is exactly what the doctor ordered. All you have to do is chop up the veggies and preheat the oven. This recipe will take care of the rest.
The units of the vegetables are based on the standard size you’re likely to find at the grocery store, so you won’t have to worry about having a few mushrooms and half a red pepper over. If you’d like to make the recipe even more substantive, you can add some chicken or fish, but in the interest of atoning for overeating -- which is the real idea behind the recipe -- this version is vegetarian. There should be plenty of fiber and flavor to make you feel full!
