Recipe

A couple of weeks back I included this Healthy Saag Paneer recipe in the vegetarian meal plans and after getting some really positive responses it seemed like the perfect thing to share this weekend. Packed with vegetables, fiber, and protein, this delicious Indian dish made primarily with spinach is a great vegetarian meal. It also tastes delicious over chicken or beef if you want to a meat friendly option. Have leftovers? Serve on flatbread to make an Indian inspired pizza.
