This is a really quick dish, and will fill you up in a much healthier way than a 3 in 1. Not only is this dish sweet, meaty and tasty but also absolutely fucking gorgeous. Go on - give it a lash!

The whole thing will be looking as good as this and you can pat yourself on the back for creating not only dinner for today, but tomorrow's lunch as well. Epic.
