Serves 1

Ready in about 25 minutes


Low-calorie cooking spray

2 back bacon rashers, visible fat removed

1 echalion shallot, peeled and finely chopped (or use ½ small onion)

1 carrot, peeled and finely chopped

1 small garlic clove, crushed

100ml hot vegetable stock

½ x 400g can green lentils in water, drained and rinsed

1 skinless and boneless thick cod fillet

Juice of ½ lemon, plus a wedge to serve

50g baby spinach

Fresh dill, to serve


1 Spray a non-stick, lidded frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Add the bacon and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until golden, then chop and set aside.

2 Spray the pan with a little more low-calorie cooking spray, add the shallot, carrot and garlic and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the stock, bring to the boil and stir in the lentils.

3 Season the cod and place on the lentils. Squeeze over the lemon juice, bring to the boil and cover. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 8 minutes, or until the cod is cooked through. Remove from the pan and keep warm.

4 Stir the spinach and bacon into the lentils and heat until the spinach starts to wilt. Pile the lentils onto a plate, top with the cod, scatter with dill and serve with the lemon wedge.

These foods what to take priory over other foods, by filling your plate with at least 1/3 of the Super Slimming Foods will see the lbs literally drop off.
