I fixed this for a family get-together and everyone loves it!!

I made this for a casual Mother's Day meal at my house. Almost everyone took seconds. It was the surprise hit of the evening. I didn't have mustard seed, so I substituted 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard. Seemed ok. Next time my personal preference would be to omit the green pepper and add an extra carrot or two. I'd keep the red pepper though, just for the splash of color.
