There are those days when a warm dish of something slightly decedent is just what is needed. Today was one of those days. I logged in 12 miles yesterday so thought I deserved a little “treat”.

This comes together super easy and is great topped with or alongside leafy greens or any other colorful vegetable.

It is very satisfying so try starting with a half of portion.
