      I just love the combination of raisins and cranberries with turnip and broccoli. This was so good.

      I love any food that's sweet. I used a broccoli, peppers and tomatoes for this recipe. I no longer make rice any other way. Thank you for sharing your Thanksgiving tradition!

      I made a 2 serving size amount and it's hard to get the best veggies (broccoli and cauliflower) into that small amount unless you chop it all to tiny bits. So, I used peas, diced carrot, diced celery and what was left of a yellow pepper. I subbed dried fig for the cranberries and added 1/2 a tsp each of ground cumin, coriander, cinnamon and a bit if minced garlic.(skipped the cheese). It turned out wonderful and the almonds were a lovely touch
