Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



My family very much enjoyed this....and will definitely make again!

Nice flavour!

This recipe was not as popular as some of the other ones that I have made from this website. Although the flavour is very nice, the texture was not well received by my kids.

very good, quite a change from usual sides.....

Eh, not what I was hoping for

My husband and I were unimpressed with this basic recipe. It was pretty bland. I think it may have been good had we spiced it up with some other ingredients. Perhaps salsa for a morning meal??

My family loved this, it will be a side dish to many of our meals for years to come. Kudos to this one.
