This is a fabulous and healthy recipe - very low on carbs. I use a mixture of chopped vegetables including carrots, asparagus, broccoli, beans, capsicum and anything else I have on hand.

Top Review by Maja Ganer Andersen

Made the dish for my family, we all agreed that it was really sweet. Since we expected it to be savory, we were disappointed. Keep in mind, if you choose to cook it, maybe to not add the sugar, if you want it to be savory.
