This is a tasty vegetarian recipe that goes well either as a dish in its own right or as an accompaniment to other foods. The stock can be a vegetable stock for a truly vegetarian dish, or a meat/chicken stock if preferred. It does change the overall taste a little. My daughter bought the recipe home from school many years ago and we have enjoyed it ever since.
