THE VILULA TEA GARDEN was a little tea room in my memories...ladies wearing white gloves and pretty hats; soft and mended old linens on the tables; and heirloom roses in crystal vases....lovely.

This came direct from Clean Eating. The image shows cod over couscous. I simply changed the cheese to Wisconsin Feta instead of low-fat feta and substituted grapeseed oil for olive oil. The grapeseed oil takes high heat and doesn't impart any flavor thus the nature flavor of the food shines through. I like to garnish with fresh pepper and salt and lemon zest. You can also use a nice crumbly Wisconsin Blue cheese in place of the feta.
Cook time:15 Min Difficulty:EASY
Prep time:10 Min Serves:2
- 2 tilapia fillets (you can substitute haddock, cod or
- 8 sweet grape tomatoes, sliced
- 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
- 1 Tbsp chopped fresh italian-leaf parsley
- 3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
- 2 lg shallots, diced
- 1 Tbsp grapeseed oil
- 8 oz baby spinach
- 1/3 c wisconsin feta cheese, keep 1 tbsp reserved for
- pinch fresh ground black pepper
- pinch fresh ground sea salt
- 1 tsp fresh lemon zest pieces

1. Preheat oven 350F. Place fillets and tomatoes in a glass baking dish. Sprinkle garlic and parsley over top and finish with lime juice. Cover with foil and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

2. In a skillet over medium-high heat, saute shallots in oil for 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium and add spinach, cooking until wilted, about 5 minutes. Stir in feta and heat until melted and evenly distributed.

3. To serve, place 3/4 cup spinach-feta mixture on each plate and lay 1 fillet over top, finishing with half of tomatoes. Garnish with fresh cracked black pepper, salt, a few pieces of fresh lemon zest and sprinkle on reserved feta.

Could not resist sharing sweet husband and I are eating LOTs of organic greens, fruit, nuts, and seeds...some healthy meat(4 oz.)or eggs most days. If we eat any carbs/starches, they are complex carbs like 1/2 baked potato, ground flaxseed, hummus, quinoa, stone-ground whole grains, and Irish oatmeal every day for breakfast. He says he has never felt better and is dropping pounds! I may drop some but right now don't want to lose more than 10 lbs...not that I am Twiggy, but I lost when I had the C-spine surgery. I had to buy all new clothes and need to stay in those clothes! Anyway, stay tuned for more healthy recipes...hope you all had a fabulous New Year!

My Mother and I are starting the year again with Kay Arthur, this time studying Jeremiah! So-o-o-o good! Check out! We are also reading our Bibles through again...this time I am reading in the NIV Chronological gives you a reading for everyday. Sometimes, I can't do that, so I try to catch up that week. I don't think it is the LAW for anyone to do it, but just never had and wanted to give it a try in 2011. I enjoyed it so much and learned so much about God that I want to do it every year, if possible...what are your thoughts? Have a great weekend! xxxPaula
