Harissa Black Bean Ragout | Sabrina Ghayour (Bazaar: Vibrant Vegetarian Recipes)

With only a handful of ingredients and very little prep, the Harissa Black Bean Ragout seemed like an excellent meat-free Monday option.

Since deciding to cut down on meat, I’ve been slowly going back to all my familiar junk-food haunts and trying their vegetarian/vegan options.
