Green Juice for Dinner? Maybe Not.


Seared Cod with Baby Potatoes and Green Sauce

When I saw this recipe in the April issue of Bon Appétit magazine, I couldn’t wait to try it.  I’ve been drinking green juice lately and really love it so  assumed I’d love it with fish.  I couldn’t find hake so substituted cod.  Let’s just say, I’ve discovered I am more of a butter and white wine kind of gal when it comes to fish.  Naturally, I loved the baby potatoes and greek yogurt that went with the fish.  Give the recipe a try though, you might enjoy it and you’ll certainly feel virtuous eating so healthy!!

and a Diva Dishes.  Leave it to Mimi to find a way to use that new juicer of hers to make a dinner!  I’ve been on a health kick lately but, I prefer my fruits and veggies “au natural” not juiced.  It actually does look delicious though.  Maybe I need to get a juicer after all!

Thanks to Bobby Flay (remember I’m a Flay-fanatic) I finally learned how to properly brown meat, which is essential to the presentation of this dish  As you can also see, the carrot romesco takes center stage.  Take the time to make this meal and you won’t regret it!!!

and a Diva Dishes.  This is a meal that you would be really proud to serve dinner guests.  Even “romesco” sounds elegant and European.  Pop open the cava and treat your guests to one hell of a meal!

Swiss Chard and Mushroom Galette



Not only is this beautiful but you were able to incorporate your leftovers (rather than wasting food like you usually do Mimi).  It’s interesting that when Mimi read the ingredients she realized that with a few tweaks she could use her leftovers.  Who knows, maybe Mimi even improved a Bon Appetit recipe!!

and a Diva Dishes.  Well Sue thank you for the vote of confidence!! Did I improve the recipe?  I don’t know but it sure was good!!

Here’s my version of the quick, healthy and tasty fish stew  — I am making this again for my family on Good Friday.  I’m sure they will love it!  I’ll skip the extra creme fraiche Mimi and stick to the 380 calorie recipe.

and a Diva Dishes.  Sue!! Lent is over!  Add that extra creme fraiche, you won’t regret it.  Here’s my version.
