Foil Baked Fish with Spinach & Tomatoes

Baking fish in parchment paper or tin foil is known in France as poisson en papillote (fish in a parcel). It is a very simple and healthy way to cook fish and is also very flavorful since the fish and vegetables cook together in their own seasoned juices. Cleanup is easy too! Any white fish will work. I used tilapia in this recipe. You can refer to the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch guide to help you make ocean-friendly seafood choices.

Southwest Black Bean, Corn, Quinoa, & Kale

This nutrient dense vegan dish is high in protein, high in fiber, and is gluten free. It is also very versatile and can be served warm or cold as a side dish or a main course. Raw kale is an acquired taste for some. The lemon juice in this recipe will help to tenderize the kale, but you can always steam the kale if you prefer a more wilted version. Enjoy!

Asian Style Collard Greens

Full of vitamins and minerals, collard greens are surely one of nature’s super foods. Like other leafy greens, collard greens have cancer-preventive properties and may offer protection against heart disease, as well. This Asian style side dish – featuring garlic, ginger and tamari sauce – is as tasty as it is easy to prepare. Remember, it’s good to go green!
