I scaled this back for 2 serves which even has the only side was plenty for 3 of us but I have to say I found the cumin very overpowering and if making again would cut that back but thank you for a very nice side Mikekey made for What's On the Menu tag game at http://4foodfriendsandfun.yuku.com/ I am posting this to replace the review I put under I'mPat as I inadvertently opened to accounts and trying to bring everything into one account.
