Flaky fish and a bright, acidic sauce is great any time of the year. Plus, it’s quick and easy to do, which is ideal after a long day at school or overtime hours in the office. The fish cooks in less than five minutes, and the sauce is made entirely in a food processor. Does it get any easier than that?

New Recipe Alert: Roasted Red Beet Hummus


It’s always a great idea to have an extra can or two of chickpeas in your pantry. They are perfect in soups, stews and salads because they add a delicious creamy texture and a significant amount of nutritional value. Add a healthy dose of tahini (ground sesame seeds), squeeze of lemon juice and a few cloves of garlic, then you have an incredible spread called hummus, a classic Middle Eastern dip.

To make this dish a little more interesting, I decided to add roasted red beets, toasted sunflower seeds and parsley. The earthiness of the beets, nuttiness from the tahini and bright acidity from the lemon makes for an amazing dish you’ll want at every meal. Serve with naan and fresh veggies on the side for dipping.
