Every so often, it’s time to shake things up a little. With this in mind, I’ve decided to take a break from all the delicious sweet treats that seem to overload the recipe section of my blog. Today I’m sharing a super easy (very light!) meal or the perfect side dish. Fortunately, this recipe only requires a few ingredients and is also completely vegan friendly.

Due to our current quarantine lifestyle, I just want to point out that there are a few easy swaps, for example, if you only have tinned tomatoes – Use them instead, No pine nuts? No problem, I love salted cashews and peanuts in my savory dishes.  You could top with this chicken, tofu, feta cheese or whatever takes your fancy.
