Like NoraMarie I too needed something to go with asian food. Nice contrast, tasty side dish. I served this with Thai Grilled Chicken Thighs Recipe #99156 and Bulgur Pilaf With Broccoli and Peppers Recipe #107267

I was going to make this for dinner tonight anyway, but in mid-afternoon I was getting hungry so I cooked it up early and all by myself ate about half (!!) the recipe as a snack. Didn't mean to eat that much but it was just REALLY GOOD and I couldn't help myself.

These were very tasty! I served them with an Asian dinner and they were the perfect side dish! Thank you Toolie for an easy and delicious recipe.
