This recipe serves one and is taken from The Fat Loss Plan by Joe Wicks, naturally you can adjust the ingredients depending on how many you are cooking for.

This is definitely as good as take out food and so quick and simple to make.  This is one of those recipes you can add so many other ingredients to, bok choy, fresh chillies, broccoli, the list goes on, basically anything you have in the fridge!
