Although I ate this for lunch, this is a great breakfast, lunch or dinner. This is an incredibly healthy, hearty and tasty meal.
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. This one is just what I wanted today. If you are gluten free, vegetarian, or just trying to eat a little better for yourself. Try this out. You can make it vegan by omitting the honey. I would add another sweetener like stevia if you do though.
