Healthy Recipe #8 – 500 Calorie Dinner

I haven’t done one of these for ages, so I thought it was about time I did another.

As it’s now under 50 days until holiday, I am majorly on the healthy eating wagon. No more sneaky snacks. Therefore, I made this dinner the other day, which is not only really good for you and stupidly feeling, but it also meant I could eat dessert too!

It might not look like much, but damn it was tasty.


Ingredients (serves 2):

350g New Potatoes

500g Microwaveable Vegetables (I used courgette, carrot and broccoli from Tesco)

400g Frozen Haddock Fillets

200g Roasted Red Peppers

2 Cloves of Garlic

25g Feta Cheese

½ tsp Smoked Paprika

½ tsp Mild Chilli Powder


Blender/ Nutribullet

1 Small Saucepan

1 Big Saucepan


Garlic Crusher (if you’re fancy, otherwise, knife)


Wooden Spoon



#1 Preheat oven to 180 degrees, fill big saucepan with water, chuck your haddock fillets into the oven and your potatoes into the saucepan, high heat for potatoes to bring to boil. Start timer for 20 minutes

#2 Whack your peppers, garlic, paprika and chilli powder into your nutribullet/ blender and whizz together until you get a smooth consistency

#3 Empty pepper sauces into small saucepan on a low heat, crumble in your feta and stir occasionally

#4 By now your potatoes will be boiling, turn down

#5 When timer goes off, put your vegetables into the microwave for their allotted time (mine was six minutes)

#6 Leave vegetables to sit for one minute. Turn off potates, drain and place on plates. Remove haddock from oven, put vegetables onto plates after standing. Pour (now heated) pepper sauce over fish and you’re good to go!

I followed this up with fruit kebabs and yoghurt, and it was a beaut for 800 calories altogether!
