21 Day Fix Recipe: Mahi Mahi Veggie Medley

Trust me, I KNOW how hard it can be to fill the 'green container' quota.  However, this recipe is a surefire way to ensure that it happens.  What's nice about this recipe is that you can add TO the green containers as much as you would like.  So, if you need MORE than 2 greens, then just add more veggies to your mix.  Not to mention, this recipe completely satisfies, and is really delicious!

Prep Time: 15 minutes  Cook Time: 15 minutes  Serves: 1

What You Need:

1. Mahi Mahi fillet, cut in half
2. 1 cup Spinach, chopped
3. 1/2 cup Kale, chopped
4. 1 tomato, chopped
5. 1/4 cup mushrooms, chopped
6. 1/2 cup quinoa (uncooked)
7. 1 tsp. olive oil
8. lime (optional)
9. pepper (optional)

To prepare the quinoa:

1. This will be what will take the longest, so start with the quinoa first.
2. In a small sauce pan, bring 1 cup water to a boil
3. Add in the quinoa and cook on high for about 5 minutes
4. Cook on low, with the quinoa covered until you can fluff it with a fork, and there is little to no remaining water.
5. Remove from heat.

Mahi Mahi:
1. In a large skillet, add the oil, and let it heat up for about 2 minutes
2. Add the Mahi Mahi, then sprinkle with pepper and cook on high, flipping it every 3 minutes, until it flakes easily with a fork.
3. Remove the Mahi Mahi from the skillet.

1. In the same skillet, add the mushrooms, spinach, kale, and tomato
2. Sprinkle with pepper if desired
3. Cook until the tomatoes are tender, and the spinach and kale are wilted.
4. Remove from heat
5. In a small bowl combine the quinoa and the veggies (you may not use all of the quinoa, but just measure it out to your preference, you can always use the remaining quinoa for later!)
6. Place the veggie/quinoa mix on a plate, and place the Mahi Mahi fillet on top
7. Squeeze fresh lime juice over the veggies and Mahi Mahi.
8. Enjoy!
