Healthy, because

Even smarter

The combination of the nutrients and fiber from the vegetables and the protein from the chorizo makes this low-calorie dish very filling! You can serve it as an appetizer or turn it into a meal by adding some bread or grains like brown rice or bulgur. 

You can always substitute other types of meat depending on your preferences and what is available. Additionally, you can add more vegetables to this dish if you want more flavor and nutrients!
