This is an excellent side dish we enjoy with chicken. But you can pair it about anything you like. In fact, it can even make for a meal in itself. Good food does not have to be complicated or time consuming to make in order to be as healthy as it is delicious. The best thing about foods like this is being low in calories and dense in nutrition, you can eat about as much of it as you want, which is a good thing for people like me who really enjoy eating, yet still manage our weight.
