A fresh start to the week and a fresh recipe! Ok, well I mean fresh as in flavor because this is one of those recipes I’ve had tucked away and haven’t found the time to post until now. I really like this recipe because you can easily swap out the protein with chicken or tofu and keep everything else the same and it will still be delicious! This recipe can easily be made for dinner one night and pack the leftovers for lunch the next day. Since I made this recipe for Austin Woman, I even included tips for a kid-friendly version. If only lunch box recipes were this cool back in the day!
