    Greatly enjoyed this dish with fresh steamed broccoli florets. Cooked them 5 minutes in my steamer pot. Will make again.

    We had this delicious side dish tonight and it is a total winner. The flavors all melded together with none overpowering. Delicious! Not only quick and easy but so yummy. We will have this recipe again.
