This came from the Chicago Tribune's Best of cook book. It's a wonderful side dish, full of flavor.

Top Review by RedVinoGirl

This was good! I think I loved it even more the next day for lunch with some sriracha sauce on top of it. Nonetheless, the cooking instructed were right on and it was flavorful. I did not find it spicy but we're used to heat. Leftovers are great. Would make again.
