The seasoned and sautéed veggies are so flavorful and delicious. I served them over cilantro lime white rice, but you could sub in brown rice, quinoa or cauliflower rice. The veggies are really the star of this dish!

You can also play with the toppings if you like. I stuck with fresh sliced avocado, which added the perfect creaminess to the dish, but you could also add black beans, salsa or cheese (if you’re not making the dish vegan.)
