The Manny Pacquiao Side Dish

Over the weekend we had a party for the Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao fight.  I was totally team Pacquiao.  I wanted to make something different for this party – so I researched some recipes and created this!  I will FOR SURE make it again it tasted so healthy.  (I wish I took a picture).  Inspired by this recipe.
