I love to cook, but sometimes, especially after a long day, I don’t want to have to measure 15 ingredients, dirty multiple pots, or spend 30 minutes cutting produce for dinner. I love that this dinner requires just a little prep, a few ingredients, and still gives me two servings of veggies. My mother always told me to have at least two colors of veggies at dinner, and I totally agree. You’ll get a variety of vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals that’ll help your body thrive. So next time you’re tired and unmotivated to cook, skip the boxed dinner and make this easy dish, instead!
