Love this recipe! It is simple and delicious. After trying several green recipes, this is the only one we make and we love it!

I make this regularly. The fresh lemon and savory are a great flavor combination. It's simple enough for a weeknight side dish yet delicious enough to serve to company. It works great with steamed carrots, too.

We qaurtered this recipe for two people. It did not have a lot of flavor. If I were to make it again I would increase the savory. Served with CL's Turkey Mini Meat Loaves and a premade twice stuffed bake potato.
