"Just because you are using olive oil doesn't mean you're not using fat- fat is fat, regardless of source. There's also some in the brown rice (all whole grains have a little). The almonds will also have some. BTW, the sat fat comes from the olive oil, but it's minimal, and the possibly perceived hazard is nonexistent. Olive oil is part of the so-called Mediterranean diet, which the World Health Organization, among many others, recognizes as one of the healthiest on the planet. In fact, the use of olive oil in place of many other sources of fat, is universally recognized as an aid to weight loss. Then, of course, this recipe only serves 2."

"where do the 11 g. of fat come from? It does not seem like it would be that much, with no meat in it. But sounds like this would be good with Chichen in it. mlc4girls"
