Delicious and easy to make side dish. I left out the sultanas because I had a dried fruit hater eating with us, but even without, the result was really tasty.

Quite bland as per the recipe - definitely more flavourings need to be added. Easy to make.

Fabulous recipe. I added the rind of the lemon and a bit more lemon juice to give a slightly sharper flavour. Definately do the day before you need it.
