This dish is really good, my husband even liked it and he doesn’t eat things like this. I will make this over and over again.

This was delicious! Loved the flavor of the recipe and how easy it was to make. I forgot to buy coconut oil at the store, that was the only thing missing but it still turned out great! I’ll definitely be making this again!
