Recipe by Leeanne Wright

"I loved that this recipe took less than 20 minutes from the beginning of the preparation to when it was cut into slices and served on our dinner table. It was easy to prepare, used a lot of ingredients I had around the house, and even introduced my family to a few new things that I didn't know they would enjoy!" Anna Albrecht, mom of Sophie, 2, Kingston, Ont.
