One-pot Paprika Cod and Chickpeas

This one pot meal packs a flavour punch with paprika and juicy tomatoes. Cod, like any white fish, is really low in calories, but high in protein.  And as one of our members, Carla tells me, ‘If it swims, it slims!!’

This recipe is a really simple tray bake that’s low in calories, and can be eaten on its own or with an accompaniment such as rice or couscous, or as suggested  a lovely crusty cob – just add the extra calories. It only takes 30 minutes so is perfect for a midweek meal.
