How’s that for simple? We like to eat ours on top of rice (I used the “Basic Unsoaked Rice” recipe from Nourishing Traditions and like to use just beef bone broth). I usually also include a variety of toppings for my family members to choose from including: grated cheddar cheese, sour cream (the real stuff…just plain old cultured cream), sliced olives, diced green or red pepper, diced onion, or homemade sauerkraut. So tasty! Enjoy!
