Chef Tips

  • Can substitute one small butternut squash for the two sweet potatoes, in desired.

  • Make this vegetarian by adding one 15-oz can of garbanzo beans instead of the fish, shrimp, or chicken.

  • Top this dish with chopped cilantro, basil, or green onions for even more color and flavor!

  • Nutrition facts are calculated using garbanzo beans and 1/2 cup of cooked rice. Reduce the sodium with low-sodium soy sauce.
