Well hello versatile!

A perfect accompaniment to a curry, or any dish requiring rice on the side. The bonus is it’s full of protein. This dish can also go either way, sweet or savoury! It is practically dessert if you add some cinnamon and coconut palm sugar. Certainly a grain free. dairy free, fantastic breakfast… and that can’t ever be bad! Yep, versatility is my middle name!
