Nutrition Tip

One of the vegetables we use in this recipe is spinach. Spinach is one of the richest sources of lutein, a phytonutrient that helps give spinach its color and helps shield it from the sun's harmful rays. It also helps protect our eyes and other cells from damaging UV light – which can cause macular degeneration. This phytonutrient also helps fight off inherited diseases of the eye such as retinitis pigmentosa, better known as tunnel vision, and cataracts.

The beauty of this dish is that you can replace any of the vegetables with your favorites. Remember one thing: keep it colorful.
