About the Recipe

This is so easy to make but is really delicious and satisfying. It's vegan-friendly (just swap the dairy yoghurt for plant-based yoghurt) and is packed with protein and fibre.
It's definitely one of my favourite dishes and can be prepared in advance and placed in freezer, ready to warm up when you're in a hurry.
Feel free to add any vegetables you like - I love adding a bunch of fresh spinach 5 minutes before the end of cooking for an added boost of carotenoids, vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid, iron, and calcium!
