  • “I think y’all can experiment and add green beans, corn, lentils or any other vegetables that you like. I cook this often and never make it the same way twice. I really enjoy experimenting with various spices when I cook and decided to add Old Bay for an extra depth of flavor. The only thing that I wouldn’t change is the Knorr chicken or beef broth. I’ve found the Knorr broth that comes in the individual tubs you mix with water is superior to other brands because of the flavor and low sodium content.”
