Yummy, basic recipe where the ingredients are merely a suggestion. I use this as a guideline, and end up throwing whatever leftover veggies I have in my fridge in. This is very lightly spiced, so use your imagination and use whatever complements your meal. I think this is nice with some sausage thrown in, personally. Great, painless intro into whole grains!
