    Sandy in California's Note:

    I made this last night and it was great! Very simple and very good for you. I tasted it before adding the lemon juice and I think that I liked it better without, but the recipe (from a nutrition book - Becoming Vegetarian) called for it, so I've included it below. I added some cooked tomatoes at the same time as the yams. I used 2 very rounded teaspoons of some Chinese Chili Garlic sauce I had in the fridge. I ate it with a dolop of yogurt. Nothing else needed, it's a complete meal. My boyfriend ate it with Pita though. I can't wait for the leftovers tonight :-)

      I loved the texture of this dish...almost like a risotto. It was yummy and easy, and great for a quick weeknight dinner. I didn't use the full amount of peanut butter but it was plenty peanut-y for my tastes. Added some sriracha, as well.

      I loved this. I cut the recipe in half since it was only my husband and I but then wished I hadn't! Made it with spinach and quinoa since that's what I had and extra PB because we love it. I also left out the lemon because I liked it how it was.
