Oh, I enjoyed this! I was looking for a nice veg dish to enjoy while the rest of the family had a meat entrée, and I think I got the better meal! It was very easy to prepare, and I imagine there is room for experimentation in terms of which veggies are used. I am not a fan of turnips, so I added some eggplant and green beans I had languishing in the crisper. Turned out great! I will use that method for prepping grains in the future; the butter and broth added terrific flavor. I cut this recipe in half this evening to serve just me and my toddler son, and boy do I wish I had made a whole recipe as leftovers would be sublime! Next time I might add more pepper flakes, but I might have been a bit ginger with them because of my little guy. Made for ZWT 9, by a fellow Gourmet Goddess.

Well, this recipe (with it's cicken broth) isn't really one that anyone could call a vegetarian delight, but I tweaked it a little & we were very, very satisfied with it ~ I replaced the chicken broth with the homemade vegetable broth that I usually have on hand, & that worked well! With the exception of the turnip (easy enough to purchase), I had all the ingredients in my kitchen, so . . . Thanks for sharing a great recipe with us!

I scaled back for 2 serves and found that plenty for 3 of us, I did not use turnip and rather than use on 1/4 can of tomatoes I chopped up a large ripe tomato and made up the vegies in the morning and used heated up in the microwave when making the couscous making it for an exceptionally quick side to go with dinner. Thank you mersaydees, made for Make My Recipe tag game.
