  1. Delicious!! I’ve made this several times, each time a little different than before, adding in a variety of veggies. Easy and delicious!! 

  2. This was fast, easy, and delicious! I added some sugar snap peas, red onion, and basil.

    I served it with some brown rice and a sprinkle of everything but the bagel seasoning.
