Sample recipe from Vegan Fire and Spice by Robin Robertson.
SV NOTE: All the Vegan Fire and Spice recipes are sturdy, easy, and flexible - especially Picalillo, a deliciously spicy Latin American style hash with rice, beans, veggies, nuts and raisins.
The Jamaican Style Picadillo recipe is as written in Vegan Fire and Spice, but Robin says you should feel free to play with it - or any of her recipes.

Picadillo is incredibly flexible! The first time I made it, I left out the onions, substituted green beans for peas, cashews for almonds, olives for raisins, green curry paste for curry spice, olive oil for canola oil, and half a jalapeno pepper for the hot chiles. I used more cumin, and less cayenne. And it was still extremely delicious!
The second time I made Picadillo, I had all the ingredients except canned tomatoes and slivered almonds. So I used spaghetti sauce - that's why it's so red in the picture - and whole blanched almonds. Very Tasty! Picadillo would also be tasty with fresh tomatoes.More bean cooking tips and directions
