After coming home from the farmer's market Sunday morning, exhausted from a long weekend, I had to cook something quick and nutritious for Kenya's dinner. Believe it or not, my husband came up with this combination. The man loves a lemon (especially if it's a Meyer lemon which is a little sweeter) and since he's my best tester and loves to influence Kenya's palate, I give him props for coming up with this delicious recipe.
It took me minutes to prepare and it makes several meals to serve and a few more to freeze. This dish represents all the delicious flavors that we found at the Sunday market.

*It’s nice to keep this dish a little chunky if you’re serving it to a
little one with a few teeth.
