I love meals that come together quickly! I started kickboxing recently ( what's up I <3 Kickboxing!!!) and my body is so exhausted when I get home I need a meal that is nutritious and easy. This meal actually reminds me of a meal I had in Paris with my sister in law Marjorie in her apartment. I remembered how delicious and easy it was so I decided to share it with you.
You can realistically use whatever you have in your fridge in this dish. I decided to use fresh spinach, tomatoes, zucchini and garlic. In Paris we added sausage and it was a delicious addition. You can serve this simple meal with quinoa and a dollop of Greek yogurt and lemon zest. I love the lemon zest because it brightens the flavor of the dish.
You can even make this into a soup. I added chopped tomatoes ( fresh or canned) but you can also add the tomato juice from the can and it will be more like a soup. Either way it is delicious!
