    I actually used this as a side that incorporated both veggies and starch to accompany fish. Very easy to make and very tasty.

    What a delicious way to serve a vegetarian dinner and not miss meat at all. We thoroughly enjoyed this meal and I will be making it again often. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Very flavorful vegetables, loved the combination of vegetables with the basmati rice. Made as written, except for the cornstarch. For the Holy Trinity Cooking Challenge. For ZWT-9 - The Apron String Travelers

    Reviewed for ZWT9- an easy recipe to prepare and cook. Made as written (though minus the mushrooms as I realised that I didn't have any at the last minute). Served over basmati rice for a tasty and hearty vege meal. Photo also to be posted


I live in Knoxville, TN with DH, my beautiful son, and the most spoiled cat on the planet! I grew up in Cincinnati and landed in TN by way of Bloomington, IN and Santa Fe, NM. Needless to say, it's been a long, strange trip!! To explain the name: I was veg for 11 years, vegan for 1. In the last year or so I started eating poultry and fish again, but my brother-in-law's nickname for me (smelly vegetarian) has always stuck. Also...thanks a million to my Zaar fairy godperson :)!!! <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
