I've just made it for dinner tonight, and was really nice...this recipe made me get the aduki beans that i've never heard of before. I reall enjoyed it and was quite fullfilling and well, i add a few vegetables more: zucchini, mushrooms & celery, to be fried with the other ingredients and when it was in the skillet, i put a layer of corn out of a can and then the mashed potatoes. Thanks a lot for this recipe is already in my favorites :)
