The beauty of this dish is you can serve it as a side, or as a one bowl meal all by itself. It’s really a well-rounded dish including everything you need in a meal: protein, fat, and it’s loaded with veggies. Check, check and check. You can easily vary the meat or veggies depending on what you
have in the fridge.
