Really simple and easy (and cheap)! Loved it! I also really liked the balsamic at the end. It added a nice dimension. This will be a repeat sure!
Excellent recipe. My 5 year old asked for it in his lunch for the next day and my husband asked me to keep this recipe to make again. Easy, nutritious crowd pleaser. Make it as written (don't skip the olive oil) and you won't be sorry. 5 stars
Very good, very easy, very healthful. A keeper for sure.
the beans and spinach have plenty of protein. Don't spoil it with fat.
Looks great and I plan to fix for dinner tonight because I have all of the ingredients at home. I agree totally about finishing it with oil and vinegar. It adds so much flavor and not as many calories as you would think. I love olive oil's flavor!!
To all: Sometimes Extra Virgin olive oil is added at the END of a dish purely for flavor. As another member posted, using it for frying will cause it to burn because of it's delicate structure. Many Italian recipes call for the Extra Virgin oil to be used as a "topping" because of it's distinct and unique taste. They call it a "finishing" oil and some can be quite expensive and should only be used for that purpose. While extra virgin oils come in a wide range of prices and can be used in many ways, the more expensive ones are meant to be used as another layer of taste to give the dish that extra special "finished" appeal.
I think they've added the Olive Oil to provide a way to include a healthy oil in your diet, and this is one of the best for your health. However, you shouldn't cook with this oil because high temps destroy it's health benefits. So you add it at the end.
I look forward to trying this. I agree with Tyler about the oil. Would omit that, but might add chicken to give it a little extra protein.
For the life of me, can't figure out why you would have to add oil (and extra calories) to this already low-calorie dish.
