Hi Friends!

I first shared this recipe on the blog about 4.5 years ago. I updated the photos once already, a couple of years ago…but I’ve been making them a lot lately because they’re such a great quick meal or snack…so I snapped some new photos of them again to entice you to try them!

The great thing about these is that while they’re good the day you make them, they’re even better as leftovers, which makes them perfect for lunchboxes! They’re packed with protein, easy to make and taste great warm or cold. I eat them for lunch, dinner and snack time….and I’ve also been known to eat them as a post-workout snack.

Pretty simple, right? Enjoy these on their own, warm or cold (I love them cold!), on top of a salad, or even on a bun!

Drizzle with sriracha for a spicy kick or mix some thai chili sauce with plain yogurt and dip!
