Bloomin' hell....this recipe is high in protein, contains NO oil, is really easy and quick to make, is a 1 pot dish (so reduces washing up) AND the protein is easily digestible. Everyone who has ever protein loaded to build muscle will know how that last point is oh so appealing........let's just say it eliminates the embarrassing effects of high protein foods.
