This recipe would make a lovley side dish to your Christmas of Thanksgiving turkey. In fact the recipe source ('Good Food' magazine December 2005) suggests to serve this at Christmas. It serves 8 as a side dish together with another side dish. However, it can also be served as a main dish as I did. It will serve 3 then. We had this as a main course together with 'wild rice mix' (longgrain rice with wild rice pieces in it). Lovely!
