Vegetarian Spanish

I previously posted the original recipe with real chicken. Our family became vegetarian after that recipe was posted, and we've been converting our favorite recipes into the vegetarian versions. We loved the vegetarian version of this recipe and decided to share it with the rest of the world. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! For the vegetarian chicken, we use Worthington Vegetable Skallops. Although they are technically supposed to be a replacement for scallops, we like the color and texture of this as a chicken replacement. I've made it three times with perfect results each time. If you like your food a little more spicy, like we do, add a bit more cayenne and maybe even some cumin seeds. We serve this on rice. This recipe is fully vegan.
