Healthy Pescatarian Dinner at Your Fingertips
I am the primary cook in my home, I try to make sure that we eat healthy daily. Sometimes, I fall flat on this task (as I am sure we ALL do) and creating a dinner meal can sometimes feel daunting. There are many a day when I say to myself, "sh!T, what do I cook today?" The struggle is real, even for this former restaurant chef.
I have found myself that when I feel trapped by "what to cook" I lean towards an oven baked dish that requires minimal prep and lets the oven do the rest of the work. It's a win, win situation. Honestly, why don't we use our oven more often at home? I mean, it's so easy, and the amount of time that you will save from having multiple burners going at the same time is so worth it in my opinion (did someone say easy clean up).
I have already repeated this dish twice since last week. I am sure you will be repeating over and over this year. It was so yummy, and equally as easy. It's my Baked Fish with Quinoa Stuffed Peppers. Look at that photo! Oh, it's so good and so easy to make. Go and make it.
It's fish, sliced roma tomatoes. cooked the quinoa, minced mushrooms and cored out peppers. That's it!
So next time you are stumped for a weeknight meal make this. Because it takes no time at all.
Ingredients (Serves 2)
2 pcs Tilapia Filets
3 Roma Tomatoes (sliced thinly)
2 Bell Peppers (cored and seeded)
1 c cooked Quinoa
8 oz (1 pkg) Mushrooms (minced)
1/ 3 c Crumbled Feta Cheese
2 tbsp Olive Olive
Salt and Pepper to taste
Pea Shoots Micorgreens (optional garnish)
Pre Heat oven to 400.
Grab a blaking sheet (I like to use a loaf pan) and set the bell peppers inside (no tops). Bake them in oven for 15 minutes to soften them.
Mix Feta and Quinoa together in one bowl and set aside.
Line a Baking sheet with Parchment or Alum Foil and set tilapia on top. Drizzle fish with 1 tsp of olive oil and rub liberally. Season with Salt and Pepper and top with tomatoe slices on one side only. Layer the slices atop one another.
Remove the peppers, stuff them with the quinoa mixture and top with the minced mushrooms. set the tops in the pan aside the peppers and return to oven and bake for 15 mins.
Add the fish too, and bake for 15 minutes.
Serve, Garnish and Enjoy.
