“Vegetarian but so filling and tasty that you won't notice! This is a recipe to pull out when you want to seem like a more impressive cook than you really are. Easy results if you just follow the directions, but there are so many unique flavors combined together that you'll look like a culinary genius. And it's healthy, too! The cucumber relish gives this recipe added flair and makes it look so pretty and fancy, but if you're just whipping this up for a weekday family meal, you can skip it. It's tasty but it adds more to the presentation than to the flavor.”
