Tender pork fillet is marinated then roasted for maximum flavour in this tasty dish.

Ingredients

Pork Tenderloin, raw

550 g, trimmed of fat

WW Lemon & Herb Marinade

1 serving(s)

Spinach

400 g, young leaf

Butter Beans, cooked

2 can(s), large, drained, drained and rinsed

Lemon(s)

½ zest(s) of 1, grated

Lemon Juice, Fresh

1 tablespoons

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Lemon(s)

1 medium, cut into wedges, to serve

Instructions

  1. Put the pork in a shallow bowl and pour over the WW Zesty Lemon & Herb Marinade. Turn to coat, then cover and set aside to marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas mark 7. Heat a large nonstick frying pan over a high heat, then mist with cooking spray. Sear the pork fillet for 5 minutes, turning frequently, until browned all over. Remove the pork from the pan and wrap in kitchen foil. Put on a baking tray and roast for 18-20 minutes, turning halfway. Remove from the oven and set aside to rest for 5 minutes, then remove the foil and cut into 12 equal slices.
  3. While the pork is resting, wilt the spinach with a splash of water in a large pan set over a medium heat – you may need to do this in batches. Drain any excess liquid from the pan, then add the butter beans and season to taste. Stir to combine, then remove from the heat and stir in the lemon zest and juice.
  4. Divide the spinach and butter beans between 4 plates, top with the pork and serve.

Notes

You could also serve this with some crusty bread – a 50g slice will add 4 SmartPoints per serving.
