We first tried this yummy veggie dish recipe a few weeks ago with our ‘My Food Bag’ – it was so good I wanted to share it with you all. I was able to have this dish prepared and on the table within 30 minutes – I have made it several times again as it was not only delicious, but quick and easy to prepare during the working week.
And one lesson Mum’s need to learn when feeding children, is that the more interesting and colourful a dish, the higher chance you will have of it getting eaten!
Try it with fish too – in fact you could have any protein on the side and this vegetable dish would compliment it 🙂
