Chef Tim Says....
There's no doubt that eating by yourself and eating healthy can be a challenge. There are a few considerations and first and foremost is that there's no one to share the shopping, cooking and cleaning up. With couples and families often one person will cook and the other clean up. Or sometimes people will switch off making different meals on chosen days. With a larger group of 4 or 5 in a family it can be easier to cook because most recipes are scaled for two or more.

This is one of my favorite dishes. It's a variation of one created by a chef friend of mine that he used to serve in his restaurant. It is an almost perfect meal. High fiber, legumes, salmon full of monounsaturated fats, rich flavors and veggies make it a complete Mediterranean Diet meal. Best of all it's really easy to cook and the whole recipe is less than 30 minutes start to finish.
