You can get very creative with this recipe. You can add in cut green beans (my favorite), olives, cooked brown rice (then you'll need to add a bit more rice vinegar), or whatever other fresh vegetables you have - just chop them up and stir them in.Rinsing the beans will reduce the overall sodium in this dish.
