We noticed that she prefers to use some onion and garlic powder for the seasoning, but you can also use the natural ones so itís healthier. But itís still fine if you also want to stick to the powder version. This will also require a lot of your time to prepare and cook it, so itís best to serve it on the weekends when youíre not too busy. Itís one of the ultimate comfort foods that you can serve to your family and itís best to pair it with some mashed potatoes or even steamed carrots to create a balanced meal.
