I have used this for many different thing, such as a side dish, or as part of a filling for sandwiches or wraps, or mixed with grains for a hearty entree, or as a chunky dip for tortilla chips or crackers. It just works with everything and kids love it which surprised me.

I haven't been so pleased to come across a recipe like this in a loooong time! I actually made this over the weekend, but just finished up the last bit yesterday for lunch. This is such a versatile recipe! I pretty much followed the ingredients, except used 3 cups of sweet potato and 1 cup of white potato, not on purpose, I just didn't have enough sweet potato in the house. And that's the beauty of this recipe, you can alternate, mix it up, just stay within the amounts and follow the instructions. I started out having this with some cooked wheatberries, then used it again rolled up in a tortilla. I finally had the last of it yesterday for lunch, mixed with some multi-colored pasta. Next time I make it (which will be this weekend), I think I'll add some cubed tofu and some fresh champignion mushrooms. Dancer, this recipe is truly superb, and thanks so much for posting it!
Yummy! I had this on brown rice for dinner last night topped with a little cheddar, and my meat-and-potato man loved it (very surprising). With the leftovers I am going to add some black beans and maybe some stewed tomatoes for an easy veg chili. I think I will also kick it up with a little hot sauce. Delicious, thank you!
This is great... as written it makes huge, delicious, more-than-satisfying portions without guilt tied to it. I did not use safflower oil and it was fine without it. Make this! Eat it! Be happy.
