This is one of the meals I make 1x a week. You can easily switch up the veggies and use what random ones you have in stock. It’s a great way to not waste food because you don’t need many of each ingredient making it perfect for using up your stock and the flavors all work well together with the marinade. This is a great recipe for meal prep too. Simply dice everything up ahead of time and whip it up in about 15 minutes. It seems like there’s been a constant theme being keto… spend less time eating and more time living! I dice everything up ahead of time, cover with plastic wrap and put in fridge until I’m ready to cook it. This saves me so much time because I meal prep when I have time–sometimes that may be in the middle of my day, sometimes it’s the night before. It’s all about planning! Having a plan keeps you on a track to success.
So here’s the recipe and it makes 6-8 servings.
