I saw this recipe on Chef Brad, but he used teff. I did not have teff, so I proceed without it and I love the recipe. I go to a weekly potluck in my neighborhood, and if I don't have time to make something to take....this is a great throw it together and run recipe.

    I change out the beans with black-eyed peas, Lima beans, -- whatever you have on hand will work. This is a great pantry dish.

    I've also added cooked bow-tie pasta. Canned chicken, drained. The possibilities are endless. I make it with or without the parsley or the onion.
