Here is a great healthy, delicious, easy to make and economical meal or snack. It would be a terrific lunch box option for schoolchildren (now that they are back to school in Australia after Xmas holidays) and can be spiced up with the addition or substitute of grated carrot, peas, mushrooms etc. It serves 4. Another great recipe from http://www.taste.com.au
