This was a fast, simple and very mild tasting side dish. I added fresh parsley and a bit of garlic powder to taste and used fresh broccoli. I served it with the Crabmeat Stuffed Tilapia Recipe and it was a perfect balance. Next time, as a change of pace, I'll substitute frozen asparagas spears for the broccoli.
