  • 6 cups loosely packed kale leaves (about 1 bunch, stemmed)
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 1/4tsp garlic powder, divided
  • 1 tbsp plus 2 1/2 tsp dried minced onion, divided
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 lb sweet potatoes, very thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup plus 3 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 slices whole-wheat bread, crusts removed, torn into pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, divided
  • 2 tsp Old Bay 30% Less Sodium


  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 4 6-oz boneless, skinless cod fillets
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tsp horseradish
  • 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice


  1. Arrange racks in top, bottom and center of oven; preheat to 350°F. In a large bowl, toss kale with 1 tbsp plus 2 tsp olive oil, 3/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp dried onion, pepper flakes and salt. Rub oil and spices into kale. On a large rimmed baking sheet, arrange kale in a single layer. Use a second baking sheet if needed. Bake on center rack for 20 to 25 minutes, turning halfway.
  2. Meanwhile, working in batches in same large bowl, toss potatoes with remaining 2 tbsp plus 1 tsp olive oil, 3 tbsp parsley, 1 tbsp dried onion, remaining 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder and black pepper. Place metal racks on 2 large baking sheets; top with with parchment. Spread potatoes in an even layer on racks. Once kale chips are done, increase temperature to 375°F and bake potatoes for 40 minutes on top and bottom racks, turning potatoes and switching rack positions halfway thorugh.
  3. In a mini food processor, place bread pieces, remaining 1/4 cup parsley, 1 clove garlic, Old Bay seasoning and remaining 2 tsp dried onion. Process until fine crumbs form. In a small nonstick skillet on medium, heat coconut oil. Sauté crumbs for 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned. Remove skillet from heat.
  4. Press cod fillets into crumbs in skillet, turning to coat all sides. Place a metal rack on a baking sheet; top with parchment. Place cod on rack and bake on center rack of oven (at same time as potatoes) until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 15 minutes, turning halfway.
  5. Crush remaining garlic clove and add to a small bowl. Mix in yogurt, horseradish and lemon juice. Serve cod with yogurt sauce, potato and kale chips.
