Another one of Chef Tanner's gluten-free dairy-free comfort food creations. It's definitely a throw together dish of all the different vegetables and meats we had left over at the end of the week. He said this dish reminds him very much of one his mom made frequently growing up. We topped ours off with a tiny bit a grated goat gouda cheese. It was delicious and very simple! :-)
