Herbs. Spice. Everything nice. You cannot go wrong with this flavourful, flexible meal. It’s full of good-for-you beans, any leftover veggies that are starting to look sad (and you can use frozen!) and as many toppings as you desire! Whether you like your sauce or prefer it dry, love cheese or hate it, want it healthy or hearty (or both) this meal is everything, literally. Serve it over some brown rice. Throw it into a wrap. Make burritos, nachos or tacos. Have it on it’s own. Do what you want. This dish takes as much time as you’re willing to give it, and the best part is that it keeps well and freezes better! If you do have more time, half the heat settings and double the time to let the flavours really sink in. Its versatility and ease makes it the perfect meal-prep meal to have at any time of the day!

Free-range, organic and ethical meat was available everywhere, but none of it was ‘halal’! 8 years later, The conversation has slowly reached the mainstream, here is the start to her reviews of Tayyib Halal eateries and products.
