This dish is super easy to prepare, fast and healthy. Just perfect for those days when I don't feel like spending too much time prepping, but still want to eat something that is nourishing and good for you. I served it over rice to soak up the sauce. A simple arugula and radish salad completes the meal. Enjoy it!
