Pat Y. shares her Recipe "I found that sometimes only stubbornness and sheer will are what allow you to eat. However, the right recipes- like this easy dinner, help as well."

Because of the high iron content, this recipe is a good choice for cancer patients with neutropenia, a time when white blood cell count is low and risk of infection is high. Just omit the pepper.
