Author Notes: This is a very versatile dish that can be savored either as a meal or as a side dish. I created it when I was craving something healthy and savory but was too lazy to go to the store and only had a few things on hand (luckily it turned out pretty darn good).
P.S. I really like spices so I use a little more than this recipe calls for, so make sure to taste throughout and spice it up to your liking! —Kara
