This dish is high in fiber, iron, protein and flavor! I like to serve it with brown rice (or basmati rice, though it has less fiber and more calories), and vegetables on the side. What I like about this dish is that it is so easy to make, and if you use good quality ingredients and spices, it’s incredibly healthy and delicious.

Go on, give it a try!
