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.
If you like marinated artichokes, this one-dish fish meal is for you! The fish, cooked alongside zucchini, tomatoes and basil will make you nostalgic for the summer. Its worth the splurge for Sea Bass – there is nothing like its deep and creamy flavor. I like to serve this over quinoa or cous cous, to catch the delicious broth.
When you need a lighter dinner, try this amazingly flavorful chicken salad. It has a delicious dressing to keep the chicken moist and is packed with all kinds of bright veggies. Feel free to use any other veggies that you like to add color and crunch! (Adapted from Barefoot Contessa)
This is one of my go to easy meals for a last minute invite for dinner, brunch or when I don’t have much active prep time. Instead of the traditional method of making a frittata in a pan on the stove, I put it in a baking dish in the oven. Its hands off and fits more than my frying pan would. My family loves this and on the rare occasion that there are leftovers, they always make it into somebody’s lunch bag the next day. Serve this with some roasted herbed potatoes (you can use the same herbs as in the frittata) and salad or this delicious strawberry rhubarb for a weeknight treat!
