a light and healthy side dish, perfect to accompany any lemon meat/poultry/fish dish. i love cooked garlic, it's a great health benefit too. but if you don't, then omit it. i hope you don't think my directions are micro-management, but when i read a recipe, i really appreciate specific direction. maybe because i'm new and learning to cook. adding mushooms would be great. or take away the garlic and add paprika and raisins!
