This was really quite good! I didn't use a slow cooker, just cooked it in the rice cooker so the green onions were probably a little more soggy than they were supposed to be but it was delicious anyway. It was very simple to make, so I will definitely make it again. I served it with salad and the main dish was chicken sauteed in garlic, fresh rosemary, and olive oil.
