If you cannot find cherry tomatoes, you may substitute with Roma or other tomatoes, being sure to dice first. If you use canned tomatoes, be sure to drain before using.
Change up the beans if you wish or perhaps use plant based sausage or both.
Fresh Basil gives the best flavor to this dish, but in a pinch, you can use dried. Start with one tbsp dried and adjust up as needed.
I freeze a lot of my dishes, but not sure if this one would work. Best to enjoy fresh. Reheating is a good option if making ahead of time.
Oils, salt and pepper are always optional.
Sprinkle with hemp seeds and parsley if desired.
