If you’ve read many of my food posts, you’ve probably noticed I like to eat what is called “real, whole food” as much as possible. Fruits and vegetables prepared in simple ways to maximize the nutrition and flavor and without a lot of chemicals found in processed food. Yes, I eat meat but in much less quantity than in the past. My meals contain a lot of vegetables, legumes, grains, and fruits. I’m always on the lookout for new ways to prepare my food and my favorites are usually very simple.
This easy to make dish is so tasty that even meat lovers will enjoy it! A great side dish or an entrée for a meatless meal, this marinated dish has great spicy flavor. Adjust the spices for your family’s taste to make it stronger or milder.
