I got this recipe from FIXATE and it’s become a staple in my household. Everytime that I meal prep – this is one of the first things that I make because I use it in other meals as well as making sure to have it on hand. It’s an easy way for me to get some veggies in without snacking on carrot sticks! 🙂
