Fish with Moroccan Cauliflower and Currant Salad with Coconut Yoghurt Dressing
This delicious Eat Fit Food meal has many nutritional benefits including the Omega-3 fatty acids found in the FISH. The leading health body in Australia, NHMRC, suggests we should eat more fish and aim for at least two serves per week.
CHICKPEAS provide a great source of plant protein, fibre and iron. The currants provide a delicious sweetness and the mix of cauliflower, herbs and spices fills this dish with an array of flavours.
CURRANTS similar to a sultana, provide a different flavour and are high in fibre and low in saturated fats, cholesterol and sodium. They’re also a good source of potassium, manganese, Vitamin C and Vitamin K. As they are dried, they are concentrated source of calories, sugar, and nutrients, so you only need to add a small amount.
For a vegetarian meal, you can omit the fish as the chickpeas will provide a great source of protein.
