This is an unusual, healthy and absolutely delicious combo. It's billed as a main dish, but we like it as a side with sausages. The caraway seed gives it zing. We were out of dill weed, so subbed rosemary, and used all low-fat Greek yogurt to cut calories. It's even better the second day. From The Moosewood Cookbook.
