Easy, fresh, crunchy, almost healthy. What is not to like. I make this for a simple dinner with rice, a good side dish or platter for a meat main or a lunch for the little one. —jwolfsthal

Is it necessary to use rice or spelt or can one use wheat flour?

Isn't spelt another form of wheat and should therefore be eliminated from the gluten-free diet?

This sounds very good.
