This meal comes together in 15 minutes and will be gone in seconds. You can top with sriracha for a spicy kick.

For nights where you need a bit more, you can always stir cooked rice, cauliflower rice, or quinoa into the mix before serving. This is also a great way to bulk up any leftovers to cover lunch the next day.
