It’s that wonderful time of year when everyone’s being super boring, whether they be doing ‘dry Jan’, adhering to the latest diet fad or have become rampant gym bunnies.

Needless to say, I have shamelessly not committed myself to doing any of these things and am enjoying my Jan to its fullest.

But that’s not to say that I don’t love a delicious healthy meal, which is exactly what this recipe delivers. The point I’m making is that no matter what path you’ve chosen to start your New Year on, this dish is one for you.

Super easy to make, tasty as hell and full of body nourishing ingredients; this is a serious ‘Get the Glow’ plate of food.
