      I love this recipe! I had it as a side dish the other night with a pork roast. I used the leftovers for lunch and added some butternut squash. Yum!

      I added sausage and used chicken stock. The first bite was startling but by the third bite we liked it. I think I will use curry instead of cinnamon next time or cinnamon with a little hot red pepper for balance because I agree, it was a bit sweet. Very creative way to use this healthy grain. Thanks for sharing!
