This recipe is courtesy of Damn Delicious.  I love that it is cost-effective and HEALTHY (well, basically).  There is no MSG, has a bunch of protein, vegetables and amazing flavor.   This makes a ton of food, so this is an awesome recipe to make on Sunday for meal prep for the week – great for lunches, a side for dinner or even a nighttime snack.
