This recipe was passed onto me by a vegetarian friend and co-worker. She is moving back to Canada in a few days and passed on this recipe.....and I'm spreading the wealth! Her mom in Canada makes this as a side dish for each Canadian holiday but my friend and her husband enjoy it so much that they make it any day of the year. It's healthy and very simple. If you are not a vegetarian, you can add some cooked chicken breast to the dish.
