This was so savory and delicious! I added some cauliflower that I intended to rice as a side dish, because I thought the flavors would blend well and I was feeling lazy. It worked out beautifully. Next time, I think I will add some almonds or cashews and possibly some golden raisins to make it a little more authentic. But the spices were spot-on and it was yummy without the nuts and fruit. Thanks for a great grain-free dish that even my kids loved!
