This dish was inspired by my Boss, as he is on a strict vegetarian diet, I wanted to give him a dish that is not too filling and yet again that’s healthy and packed with nutrients and a dish that will go easy on his stomach during the day or at night. He also likes clean flavors, and this dish is just perfect for his demanding palate.
