4 (5 oz.) chunky cod fillets
2 tsp. mild curry powder
2 tsp. olive oil
12 oz. butternut squash, peeled and cubed
1 vegetable stock cube
14 oz. can white beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups broccoli, cut into florets
How to Make It
Heat oven to 400°F. Put cod on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Squeeze 1/2 lemon over fish, sprinkle with curry powder, and drizzle with the olive oil. Bake for 10-12 mins. Set aside to rest.
Put the squash in a microwaveable bowl with 2 tbsp. water; cover with plastic wrap, pierce several times, and cook on High for 6-8 mins. Meanwhile, put the stock cube into a pan with the white beans, and cover with water. Cook for 6-8 mins, until tender. (Remove any skins that come away during cooking.) Place cooked squash and beans into a food processor, and process with cooking stock until smooth.
In a microwaveable bowl, add broccoli and 2 tbsp. water. Cover with plastic wrap, pierce several times, and microwave on High for 4-5 mins until just tender. Serve the fish with the mash and broccoli.
