This is a recipe that I created recently using fresh herbs from my home garden. I made this recipe for My brother and I for lunch with Cuban inspired grilled pork chops and my Mango, Avocado and Cucumber salsa which I submitted yesterday. It was a yummy meal, very satisfying and delicious.

It is a very easy recipe to throw together, I acutally make it in my rice cooker.
