I tried this recipe out tonight as an accompanyment to an 'Aust/Asian' style dinner I prepared. I will never tire of the flavours of simple fare such as this. Wonderful. Simple to make and deliciously light on the tummy (at least that's what I told myself as I tucked into seconds). Thank you Tish, "good tucka".
