Easy, Nutritious, Yummy, 15-Minute Dinner Recipe


Easy, Nutritious, Yummy, 15-Minute Dinner Recipe ---your belly is going to love this! Here is a picture of my little Liam happily eating! I love pictures like this!

Last week I had what potentially could have been "one of those nights". At 5:00 PM I, realized I had nothing ready for dinner. Already my kiddos and hubby were asking 'when dinner would be ready?'. It was too late for nutritious take-out, and frankly not in our weekly budget. Therefore, I grabbed a head of cauliflower, began to thaw 1 pound of frozen, skinless cod...and hoped for the best. The end result? My picky children loved the dinner, which was ready in less than 15 minutes! My husband Ben? Agreed that this was a dinner acceptable for our entire extended family, the highest compliment I could hope for. The best part? Aside from it being both yummy and easy, it is also very nutritious! This recipe, which serves 4, is now one of my favorite 15-Minute Dinners! Side Note: Please forgive any typos...I am trying to type this up as quickly as I can while my little one is a-nap. Also, if you have any tips on quick dinner time meals, please share. This is always an on-going effort at the Martens house-hold.
