Editor's Note: Since I pack my lunch for work everyday and I don't have a way to heat anything up I'm always looking for something other than the usual salad that has become the mainstay staple of my lunch. This is a wonderful addition and of course great source of protein for those trying to cut back on meat consumption yet still get enough protein out of their diet.
