While the color might be slightly reminiscent of the Wicked Witch of West, I promise it tastes delicious. We’ve been enjoyed it with a summer vegetable sauté of zucchini, corn, tomatoes and onion, plus a big dollop of hummus. But you can serve it with whatever vegetables are in season. It’s such a versatile meal that’s a great option for lunch or dinner, and it’s kid-friendly too.
