About this Recipe:
I was inspired to create this recipe because I grew up watching my dad cook and learning from him.  I began helping him in the kitchen at an early age.  He always cooks us healthy meals, and I was inspired to make something that was healthy and easy for kids to make. It can be eaten as a side dish or even an after school snack. I hope that by trying this recipe, kids will learn that healthy food can taste delicious.
