We love Mediterranean flavours in our house, so this dish is always a welcome meal as it’s packed full of delicious flavour. It also comes together really quickly to make a great option as a light mid-week meal.

When serving as a meal, we usually top with a little flaked fish or top with a fried egg to make it a little more substantial, though it definitely hold’s its own as a dish in it’s own right.

Alternatively, it makes a really taste side alongside a heartier main.
