Recipe by Manami

This serves 6 main dishes or 12 sides - from Newman's Own web site. Adjusted a few things in the recipe. When we made it - we used it as a side dish as we made it for a few residents at the Cafe Ponce. It was really very well received since they shun at the word VEGETABLE! These were private but I wanted to post them in honor of Paul Newman, to celebrate his wonderful soul & his dream. Posted October 1, 2008
