This dish is super easy to make, with a few ingredients you can buy in advance( and have on hand) because they’re frozen! Trader Joe’s has some of my favorite frozen foods/ingredients that make dishes like this super simple (e.g. peas and grilled asparagus). Add a couple more ingredients (some may very well be staples) and you have an easy Meatless Monday dish.
