    @KylieGuy You could try green beans or finely diced carrot?

    One of my favourites. I also add beans and mushrooms. I grate some low fat cheese on top. Also found the cooking time was longer but interestingly, after I left it on bench after cooking for about 10 minutes it wasn't watery and ready to eat.
