My grandmother had Type 1 Diabetes and always had to watch what she ate. During the summers I would visit, I always asked for this dish and ate my weight in it. I could not get enough of it and at the time, I was not too keen on veggies so it worked for both of us.

I don't even know if anyone will be impressed with it as it's so totally "simple" and basic. But I love it and at times will add extra veggies in it. My husband will add extra spice too. It's definitely something to put together on a cool evening.
