And here is my recipe for this very simple but tasty all the same recipe from the other day.

I usually have a lot more time but if you want something that is very quick and basic to cook one day because you are busy and just can’t get round to having the time one day to spend time cooking or your so hungry you don’t want to wait and just want something very healthy but quick, then this is ideal.
