Omega-3-rich rainbow trout is gussied up with this fresh tasting green sauce. The best micro greens to use include brown mustard, arugula, cress, radish, or fenugreek. Wild salmon or Arctic char are good fish choices as well. Use extra sauce as a salad dressing.
1 1/2 lbs (750 g) rainbow trout filets
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup (250 mL) packed micro greens
1 shallot, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp (5 mL) lemon zest
1 Tbsp (15 mL) red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup (60 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C).
Slice trout into 4 equal-sized pieces. Rinse, pat dry with paper towel, and season with salt and pepper. Place trout pieces on silicone- or parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes, or until flesh is opaque and easily flakes.
Meanwhile, add micro greens, shallot, garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, red wine vinegar, and salt and pepper to blender or food processor and pulse until combined. With machine running, pour in olive oil through feed tube and blend until just slightly chunky.
Serve trout with green sauce.

Reminiscent of the stuffed cabbage of yore, the flavour profile of these stuffed chard smacks of cozy fall. It looks all fancy, but everything comes together surprisingly quickly. If desired, you can use turkey or pork sausage and brown rice. Time-saver tip For larger grains, such as wild rice and spelt, it’s a very good idea to soak them for several hours before cooking. This will slash the cooking time by about a third. If not soaking the wild rice, add roughly 20 minutes to the simmering time.
This stuffed eggplant is built upon layers of Middle Eastern flavours: smoky freekeh, tender chickpeas, and a herbal tahini sauce. The quick-pickled raisins add a sweet vinegary pop. Sweat it out Salting eggplant before cooking enhances the flavour by allowing eggplant to sweat out its bitterness and breaking its spongy texture.
In this enchilada riff, we stuff everything into a roasted poblano pepper shell, rather than tortillas, to pack an extra veggie serving into your meal and trim the starchy calories. If you can’t find poblanos, which are mild, dark green Mexican peppers, you can substitute green bell peppers. Flour power Made from nixtamalized corn (corn soaked in limewater), masa harina flour adds a touch of corny flavour to enchilada stuffing or a pot of chili.
These crab-stuffed portobello mushrooms can do double duty as a fancy starter for a casual dinner party or a light main course on any given night. Meaty and umami-rich portobellos serve as a holder for a light-tasting seafood salad. Gills begone Even though the gills of mushrooms are edible, they will darken and discolour everything they touch. Besides, after you scrape out the gills, you’ll have more room for stuffing. And don’t discard the stems; they can be saved and used when making veggie stock.
