    Dr Jenna Macchiochi's nutrition notes:

    "Flaky, white low-fat cod is a good source of protein and vitamin B-12, while the colours in this dish speak to how it packs in many different plant foods including tomatoes, chillies, pine nuts, garlic and basil - full of important vitamins and minerals to help your body function properly. Puy lentils add a boost of fibre, making this dish filling and therefore perfect if you’re watching your post-Christmas portion control!"
