Steamed Fish and Baked Wedges

Love a good fish and chips but didn’t have the chips. I had oven wedges instead that cook in oven 180*C for 20 minutes. While its cooking I make the salad and Dipping sauces and I steamed the fish (basa fillet) in microwave steamer 6 minutes and its done. Dipping sauce is sweet chili sauce and garlic aioli placed into a ramekin. Garden salad with baby spinach leaves, cherry tomatoes and cucumber Slices.

Fish and Wedges

Soups: Chicken Miso Soup

Eggplant “Toast”

I had some eggplant leftover from the Skinny eggplant lasagne so I placed it on foil lined tray sprayed with cooking spray. then layer the eggplant strips flat. Topped with a sprinkle of each smoked sweet paprika, garlic powder, parsley flakes and grated lactose free cheese (Liddle’s). I am not normally a fan of eggplant but this was delicious and I will be making it again. It makes a great substitute for a healthy version of garlic bread without the carbs

Chicken & Sundried Tomato Casserole

I came across this combination a few years back and decided to do it as I had ingredients to use up. Hubby loved it. I just did 2 chicken breast fillets into cubes, 1 pouch of sundried tomatoes with oil, 4 mushrooms sliced, and 1 handful of cheese on top. Place all ingredients after cutting into oven proof dish and bake 180*C for 25 minutes. Place 1 large beet cut into 6 and 2 purple carrots cut lengthwise into 3 then 1Tb balsamic Vinegar into 2nd dish and place in oven at same time to cook as chicken.
