I made a giant batch of this for a friend who just had surgery on his arm and is having a very hard time cooking for himself or preparing any kind of food. It’s a great dish that you can supplement meals with or eat on its own that freezes well for months to come. Pull out a container from the freezer when you ran out of time to make dinner!
