Instead of rice, try this easy, high-fiber side dish. It has a robust, nutty flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Heat margarine in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Set aside.

Step 3

Got Awful? After thirteen years of this recipe being around, no wonder I am the first to rate it, Yuk! This had very little taste it didn't pick up the flavors of the ingredients at all. Leftovers, including almost everything on our plate, fed the garbage disposal. We served with CL's Hoisin-Glazed Chicken Breasts, which were not much better than this. We hardly ever hit a dud and then we had 2 in one night. Oh Well!
