And with all the flavors going on, you'd never guess it's low calorie, high protein, gluten free, and sugar free. Excellent with whole grain couscous and roasted asparagus.

  • 1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 lemon, sliced into thin rounds

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
