Although this recipe uses a lot of ingredients, it’s easy to throw together and incredibly delicious. It’s sweet, spicy, and tangy. What’s more, the leftover are perfect hot or cold.

  1. Just made this. Super easy and super delicious. Would be good to stir it up halfway through the baking. This recipe would be great for company as it’s easy to double in the same baking dish. It went really well with the ginger coconut rice but plain rice would have been fine.
