Today’s recipe will definitely satisfy your “Fall Food” craving! Apple cider and maple syrup are just quintessential Fall flavors. As soon as the weather gets chilly, I start craving this dish. It’s especially great when served with rice to absorb all that delicious apple maple glaze!
I also love how simple and healthy this dish is. It only takes about 30 minutes to make with easy-to-follow instructions. It’s perfect for a weeknight after a long day of work! One serving is only 152 calories and 4g of fat! Are you kidding me? This stuff seems too tasty to be healthy, but it is. And if you’re like me, the fall/winter is the toughest time to eat healthy. All the holidays, the football parties, and the desire for rich, hearty foods to combat the cold weather means that I usually eat very unhealthy. This is one dish that fills me up, satisfies my craving for hearty food, and doesn’t pack on the pounds.
