Feel like a yummy healthy dinner but don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen? This is a good option!

This recipe, inspired by Noreen Kassam, a fantastic cook who loves expirimenting with nutritious ingredients (you can find some of her recipes here), is great if you enjoy a plate full of nutritious, yet so tasty foods!

Quinoa, often referred to as a super food, is a great alternative to rice as it is easy to prepare and has many good properties: it is amino acid rich, contains iron and lysine and is high in B2 and magnesium, amongst others.

Roasting the sea bass in coconut oil will make the flavours pop. Coconut oil is a great oil to use when cooking as it does not turn rancid at high temperatures. To read more about the amazing properties of coconut, click here.
