It’s the perfect dinner for when you’re craving Chinese takeaway because it’s not only easy to whip up but it gives you that sweet n sour fix… minus the tummy ache.

We invited our friends over to taste test this healthy paleo dinner and they definitely approved. We served it with baked cauliflower and pumpkin. Next time we’re gonna try it with caulirice! Because… caulirice!

Always merrymaking,
