Recipe by Brightspot

This is a special creation my husband and I made while dieting, and we LOVE it! It's so full of what's good for us, and it tastes amazing. It also refrigerates and freezes really well. Try it over brown rice or a baked potato with a spoon of low fat sour cream and some cheddar cheese. Delicious!
