Recipe: One Pan Roasted Dinner
It’s no surprise that plant-heavy whole foods diets are SO good for your health. Did you know that there is one diet, in particular, that’s been shown to be weight-healthy, heart-healthy, blood sugar-healthy, anti-cancer-healthy, and just all around live-longer-healthy?
Yes! It’s the Mediterranean diet.
Speaking of Mediterranean, do you love one-dish dinners? I have a super-delicious and super-healthy dinner that doesn’t mess up your kitchen, and cooks in about 12 minutes!
You’re going to love the Mediterranean flavors in this week’s recipe.
Recipe (Mediterranean): One Pan Roasted Dinner
- 4 cod fillets
- 2 handfuls asparagus, ends removed
- 1 cup black kalamata olives, drained
- 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced lengthwise
- 4 handfuls cherry tomatoes, halved
- 3 tbsp olive oil, extra virgin
- 2 tsp dried dill
- 2 dashes freshly ground black pepper
- 1 lemon, sliced
Preheat oven to 450ºF and cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.Place the fillets in the middle of the pan. Add the asparagus, olives, garlic, and tomatoes around the fish.
Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with dill and pepper. Slice lemon and place one onto each fillet. Squeeze juice from the rest of the lemon onto the vegetables.Roast in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Check if fillets are opaque all the way through and flake easily with a fork. If not, then cook for another few minutes.
Serve & enjoy!
Tip: You can substitute another fish for the cod (e.g., salmon).
