Curried Fish Pie

Serves 8.


    Curried Fish Pie

    Food is my life. I love sweet potatoes. Jamie Oliver is my secret boyfriend. Okay, so the first two are true. But I do rely on Jamie occasionally for some culinary inspiration. This fish pie was inspired by Jamie and lightened up by yours truly. It’s super easy to make and oh so tasty. A great potluck item, this shareable main dish pairs well with a salad or some green beans.


    This fish pie freezes well, so feel free to make a few smaller versions and store.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
