This is a great source of protein, with minerals and vitamins with hardly any fat, and very easy to make, and great to take to work, school, picnics, and trips. I suggest this recipe to be consumed at lunch time or as in certain Mediterranean countries, it is eaten for breakfast since it’s very filling and can carry you on until lunch! You can also have it as side dish or appetizer before main course, if you wish.
