Meatless Monday!

It's Monday again, and that means more health tips and less meat! (actually- NO meat!) Today, I have a fast and delicious dinner.  
Here's what you need:


4- Tilapia Fillets (I use the frozen ones from Costco, Target also makes a good one)
Tony's Creole seasoning
1- Can of Black Beans
1- Can of Diced Tomatoes
Smart Balance Cooking Oil
Israeli Pearl Couscous (Costco again!)
Sea Salt
Smart Balance Buttery Spread
Parsley (optional)
Fresh Vegetable of your choice- I go with broccoli


Tilapia:

  • Thaw the tilapia according to package directions (Do nothing if fresh!)
  • Preheat the oven according to package directions
  • Fill the bottom of a glass baking dish with a thin layer of the cooking oil
  • Coat the fillets on both sides with the Tony's seasoning (This is a bit hot- so use more or less depending on your tolerance for hot food)
  • Place in baking dish
  • Bake for 15 minutes
  • Take fish out of oven and cover with drained & rinsed black beans & diced tomatoes (not drained!)
  • Cook for an additional 15 minutes
Couscous
  • Cook according to package directions
  • Add SB Buttery spread, sea salt & parsley to taste
Vegetable- steamed 

Voila!!  Everyone that I have made this for has LOVED it. And it is SO easy to keep all items on hand and make a meal in 30 minutes! 



Health Tip: A plant-based diet revs your metabolism, causing you to burn calories 16% faster than you would on a non-plant-based diet for at least 3 hours after meals!
