Right on! This is such an easy side dish to make & makes for a jazzed up side dish that takes an otherwise somewhat bland vegetable to higher level. The only change I made was that I added about 1/4 cup of dried cranberries at the end. Many thanks for the recipe ~ Now I can't wait to make it when my son & his wife [both strict vegetarians] come over!
