Healthy Hints

Explore this healthier spin on a traditional dish with less fat. Lower the salt even further, by substituting with lemon juice and fresh coriander. Why not add some broccoli and green beans for extra color and cooked chickpeas or cashews for protein and crunch! Want to turn it up a notch? You could substitute regular potatoes with sweet potatoes for added nutrition.
