This is never used as a main dish in our household. We use it as a garnish with other dishes, instead of baked potatoes or anything of the sort. It is easy, quick and tasty.

The below recipe should serve 4 persons, always depending if it is going to be served as a main dish or not… and how hungry you all are!!!
