Side Dish (No.1)

I see it like this: we need food to live (this not a revolutionary vision, i know), so for me, the joys of cooking for others is to know that I am giving them life… and a damn tasty one! 

It will amaze you how something so simple can have so much flavour. Try it first and then decide what to serve it with. I’ve even mixed this with plain rice as an entire meal itself!
