    My husband's favorite vegetable is's actually the only one he likes! :) But interestingly we both prefer this simple, healthy and traditional version I learned from my mom. It's quick, easy and goes with almost anything!

      I enjoyed this okay--I went lighter on the spices, and even then found that some bites were a little bitter (but who knows the age of some of the spices I was using!). I also added one finely chopped onion and fresh spinach. Since DH is not a fan of cooked spinach, I slightly under cooked it, but it still didn't get his vote! His loss, I guess!
