Now here’s another amazing end-of-summer recipe that’s packed full of nutrient-dense ingredients full of phytonutrients, antioxidants, B vitamins, selenium, zinc, conjugated linoleic acid, quality carbs, & clean protein.

Simple to make as it’s all done in one pot & from start to finish should take less than an hour to make.

Serve with a baby arugula salad with freshly shaved parmesan with red wine vinaigrette, my hearty nut & seed bread, & you have a great satisfying meal.

Of note, it’s even better the next day once all the flavors have mingled.
