This is a healthy and very quick meal be it for lunch or even dinner. Great also after your workout. The fillings can be off your choice, however the one that i commonly use is delicious. Also great for our beautiful vegetarian friends. I use Free Range liquid egg whites that can be purchased at Waitrose in Dubai/Marina Mall . The recipe as you can see is for one, for two or more just double or treble the quantity. For this dish i served fried fiori di Zucchini which can be purchased through several companies from the internet . (i actually have a supplier in Dubai that sells them to me in small quantities) deep fried in coconut oil.
