  1. Believe it or not I have never cooked with kal e before because I didn’t know what to do with it. I finally do now…this was such a super easy recipe and cooked in no time. Definitely would recommend it for those who don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen but want to eat or present a dish that is super healthy and looks good too…kinda best of both worlds!
