I like flexible recipes, this recipe is quite flexible. We eat low-carb in our house; this recipe was developed out of a need for a rice substitute - it is easiy adapted to any cuisine, just add spices that complement your meal. We especially like it with curries.

- 1 tablespoon sodium-free chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon sodium-free vegetable stock
