Great as a side dish during National Nutrition Month®! Serve with additional lean protein such as tofu, salmon, chicken or fish. And, don't forget to add non-starchy vegetables to your meal; such as, broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach, bok choy or salad.
We made this last night for dinner with stir fried tofu and broccoli to keep it vegetarian.
*GardenCuizine Kitchen Tip: Rinse fresh dill and shake off excess water. Store in an airtight plastic baggie in the freezer. You will always have dill when you need it!
