2 bulb Garlic

1 tbsp Parsley, fresh

3 spray (about 1/3 second) Olive oil cooking spray (for lentil mash)
2 cup Green lentils, canned (rinsed, drained, for lentil mash)
1 large Tomato (chopped, for lentil mash)
2 tsp Thyme, fresh (for lentil mash)

1/2 cup Vegetable stock/broth, low sodium (for lentil mash)
4 fillet Whitefish (for fish)
1/2 tsp Curry powder (for fish)
1 tbsp Parsley, fresh (for fish)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).
  2. Cut the stem off garlic heads to expose cloves. Wrap with foil and roast for about 1 hour until very soft. Let cool slightly. Squeeze out garlic cloves from each head and mash in canola oil with a fork. Stir in parsley and pepper; set aside.
  3. To prepare lentil mash: spray a nonstick skillet with canola oil cooking spray and over medium heat, add lentils, tomatoes, garlic, and thyme.
  4. Cook for 5 minutes; mash slightly. Stir in broth and keep warm.
  5. Spray fish fillets with canola oil cooking spray and sprinkle with curry powder and parsley. Preheat oven to 350 °F (180°C).
  6. In a nonstick, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat, sear fish on both sides. Spread roasted garlic mixture on top of fillets and place in the oven for about 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested.
  7. Spoon lentil mixture into shallow bowl and top with fish fillets.


Quick Tips

  • If using canned lentils, rinse and drain them first.
  • Also, you can roast multiple garlic heads ahead of time and freeze them for later use. Simply thaw before using in the recipe.
