Just made it last night. I added a red pepper as well and at the end added a can of black beans that I had rinsed before. Not only was it nice looking but it tasted very good. Both my husband and son loved it. Thank you!

I made this recipe precisely, except that I added about a 1/4 tsp. of cayenne and 1 tsp. of paprika for a little more kick. I thought it tasted excellent, and I'll definitely be saving it for future use as a side dish or a light main course. Thank you for a great recipe!

It was a bit bland for me and not very Cuban. I added cumin, lime, black beans, paprika. Also, ned to roast millet prior to adding to sautéed veg, obviously

I added cumin, paprika, black beans and smoked beef sausage. I also used beef broth, red bell pepper, 3 cloves of garlic and a jalapeno pepper. topped it with a little sour cream and my picky eater had seconds! turned out really good!

This is surprisingly good, and it's a great way to hide veggies for picky eaters. My 11 year old who "hates carrots" gobbled it up.
