There is something to be said about simple food. Using a few quality ingredients with names and ingredients you can pronounce and recognize. Now, I don’t always eat this way but I know that eating simply is good for my body. Earlier this summer, I had the opportunity to dine at a really cool restaurant. The premise of the restaurant was simple. Pick a protein, veggies, quinoa or rice, some broth and condiments and your meal is served. It was quick. It was healthy and it was satisfying.
When I came across Bumble Bee Superfresh® Tilapia with Garlic and Olive Oil at my local grocery store, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. Bumble Bee Superfresh is a new line of naturally seasoned premium fish products that can go straight from freezer to table in less than 25 minutes. I can’t tell you how satisfying it is to be able to reach for something that is quick, easy and healthy. My family’s fall schedule is busy like yours and having quick and healthy options is a must.
To prepare the tilapia, I just grabbed the package from the freezer, slipped it into the already included pre-folded parchment bags, popped into the oven and I was ready to go!
While the oven was pre-heating for the fish, I started cooking the quinoa and prepping by veggies.
Actually what makes these Asian quinoa bowls so quick and easy to make is that I used vegetables that were already pre-cut so there really wasn’t a lot of prepping involved.
I found that getting some vegetable broth to a quick boil and pouring it over vegetables was enough to soften the veggies and get it ready for the quinoa bowls. Of course you can use any vegetables you like but since these are Asian quinoa bowls I used matchstick carrots, shitake mushrooms, snow peas and scallions.
You can season to your liken but since the tilapia comes pre-seasoned I didn’t find it necessary to add more seasoning.
Straight from the oven, the quinoa and slightly crunchy veggies was an awesome bed for the tilapia. Some additional broth, a snippet of chives and the dish was done. Simple and delicious.
Who would have thought that the fish came from a bag! No mess, no fuss and no laundry list of ingredients to sort through.
Bumble Bee Superfresh® Premium fish comes in my different varieties to choose from. Visit Bumble Bee Superfresh® to try the product for yourself and download a redeemable coupon. Just think of Bumble Bee Superfresh® as a canvas for healthy meal inspiration.
I even added some chili sauce to one of the bowls. I’ll call it playing dress up.
I’ve always had a thing for adding a “pop of color”.
