SW recipe: Tray-baked cod with spiced cauliflower and lentils

Serves 4
Ready in 1 hour 10 minutes


1 large cauliflower, cut into florets

Low-calorie cooking spray

2 tsp cumin seeds

1 tsp dried red chilli flakes

400g cherry tomatoes

4 large skinless and boneless cod fillets

125g dried brown lentils

300g spinach

25g fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped

Juice of 1 lemon, plus wedges to serve

4 tbsp fat-free natural Greek yogurt


1 Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Spread the cauliflower in a large, non-stick roasting tin in a single layer and spray with low-calorie cooking spray. Sprinkle over the spices, then season and roast for 20 minutes. Turn the cauliflower, add the tomatoes and cook for a further 20 minutes until the cauliflower is tender.

2 Place the cod on top of the veg, spray with low-calorie cooking spray and cook for a further 10 minutes, or until the cod is cooked through. Meanwhile, cook the lentils according to the pack instructions.

3 Put the spinach in a colander, then drain the lentils over it so the water wilts the leaves. Toss the spinach and lentils together to remove any excess water, then tip into a mixing bowl.

4 Remove the cod from the tin. Stir the cauliflower and tomatoes through the lentils with the parsley and lemon juice. Divide between 4 plates and top with the cod. Add a twist of black pepper to the cod and yogurt, and serve the cod with the lemon wedges, and the yogurt for dolloping over.

Add in Healthy Extras®
To help provide a good balance of nutrients, enjoy two measured portions of milk or cheese each day – your Healthy Extra ‘a’ choices.

Also have one portion of wholemeal bread or breakfast cereal each day – your Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice. To keep things simple we’ve built your Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice into the menu plan each day.

Choose your Syns®
Foods and drinks that pose a risk to your weight loss – those high in fat or sugar, as well as alcohol – can be enjoyed as carefully counted Syns. We recommend you plan between 5 and 15 Syns into your day (see the bottom of the next page for some ideas).

Make simple swaps
To help protect your weight loss, choose the leanest meats and trim off any visible fat – cut the white bits off bacon and remove skin from poultry. Dry-fry or cook with low-calorie cooking spray rather than fat or oil, switch sugar for sweetener, and swap cream and crème fraîche for fat-free natural yogurt or plain quark.
