"I love this recipe. I created it about a year ago and experimented with it till I felt it tasted just right. It has a light flavor and works well with lentil dishes and steamed veggies."

How can anyone go wrong w/ this! It's soooo simple and so flavorful. I added some chopped bell peppers and corn, but there are so many possibilities w/ this dish. I was so happy to see someone f...
