Zoodles With Feta and Cherry Tomatoes

Ingredients

2 cups cherry tomatoes, quartered or halved

1 small onion chopped

3 TBSP olive oil

Juice of 1 lemon

3 TBSP chopped fresh basil

3 medium zucchini -spiralized

2 cloves garlic, chopped

½ cup of cubed or crumbled feta cheese

¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (or more if you like it HAWT)

½ tsp salt or to taste

⅛ tsp pepper or to taste

Instructions

  1. Use a spiralizer to make zucchini noodles. (or you can just julienne them if you don’t have a fancy spiralizer)
  2. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium-high heat. 
  3. Toss in the onions and sauté until golden, add the tomatoes
  4. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently until fragrant, about 30 seconds (you don’t want it to burn).
  5. Now add the zucchini noodles, and the salt, pepper and red pepper flakes, sauté about 4 minutes, 
  6. Squeeze your lemon over the pan but be careful of escaping seeds. 
  7. Remove from pan and serve topped with feta and fresh basil and drizzle the last tablespoon of olive oil

Chili-Lime Cod With Veggies

Ingredients

  • 4 fresh, or thawed from frozen, cod fillets (or any white fish you have handy)
  • The juice of 2 limes
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp honey (omit the honey if you’re on a Whole 30 like me)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cups of chopped veggies of your choice (I used sliced zucchini, tomatoes, and carrots)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
  2. Line a 9 x 13 glass casserole dish with parchment paper (just the bottom to prevent sticking, or you can oil the bottom)
  3. Stir together the olive oil, lime juice and zest, honey, and all of the seasonings (set aside)
  4. Arrange the vegetable at the bottom of the casserole dish
  5. Place the cod fillets on top of the bed of vegetables
  6. Evenly coat the fillets with the lime, oil, and seasoning mixture
  7. Drizzle the remaining oil mixture over the vegetables
  8. Bake for 15 minutes (or until the cod is cooked fully) in hot oven and serve

Confession: I like to add fresh Parmesan to this meal – if you tolerate dairy give it a try!

Note: If you like your veggies softer you can put them in the oven for 5 minutes first and then add the cod for the last 15 minutes.
