If you are looking for a light, one dish meal, that has all of your protein and veggies, try this fresh and delicious steamed sole dish. If you’re not a fan of sole (dover or lemon) use any of your favorite light white fish. The fancy way to cook this dish is en papiotte, where you bundle each portion inside of parchment paper and seal them and each person gets their own little package, cut open and steaming hot. I have simplified this, and bake it all on a sheet tray or pyrex, covered tightly, and served family style. Make sure to cut you veggies super thin, so that the fish and the veggies cook in the same amount of time. Serve on a bed of cous cous to sop up the delicious juices.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice

I don’t think I need to sing the praises of throwing food in a slow cooker and coming home from work to delicious smelling house and dinner ready. The saffron in this dish really turns this slow cooker chicken and rice into something special. Make sure to use brown rice, so that it doesn’t get overcooked and bone-in chicken thighs, which won’t get dry even after being cooked for many hours.
