This is easy, high fiber and tasty, too!

Top Review by Tebo

I thought this was just excellent. So easy to do too!! I really liked the tartness of the lime juice. I did add a small can of diced tomatoes to this. It added a bit more colour and taste to it I think. This will be done for a vegetarian dinner I'm planning for friends soon. Thanks cmacooks.
