Now that summer has officially kicked off (the solstice was just last week), and long, warm nights are here, many of us are in the mood for lighter, healthier fare. This deliciously easy recipe requires minimum cooking while offering maximum nutritional qualities and taste in return: its healthy nutrients such as weight-reducing copper and its light-but-satisfying exotic flavors will make this your summer go-to.
