This recipe comes for August/September 2004 Light & Tasty. It makes a wonderful side dish or with all the veggies and nuts it can stand alone as a light main dish.

I have made this twice now and didn't have a bag of just peas on hand either time, so subbed a bag of mixed veggies and it turned out WONDERFUL both times. Served it as a side with garlic tilapia. This is an awesome dish that I will make often. Thanks so much for posting. Delicious!
