Poached Egg Veg Nest

Lunch

Anything Goes Salad

This salad is a good source of vitamin C for healthy bones, teeth and gums. One portion of this salad also counts as two of your 5-a-day.

Tomato Soup

This is an easy soup to make. The combination of fresh and canned tomatoes with tomato purée gives a rich tomato flavour.

Pasta with aubergine & tomato sauce

This deliciously simple veggie pasta makes the perfect midweek dinner.

Dinner  

 

Paella

Paella is the king of leftovers. This dish combines small amounts of meat, fish and vegetables – that might be left over from other recipes – all brought together with rice.

 

Ratatouille

Usually served as a side dish, but can also be a meal in itself (accompanied by pasta, rice or bread). We cook the vegetables separately first to make sure they keep their individual flavours.

 

Vegetable Potato Bake

The paprika and sour cream in this recipe give the potatoes a real Eastern European flavour.

 

Spinach Lasagne

A great way to get the benefits of spinach but without the taste by hiding it within pasta.

 

Sausage and Bean Hot Pot

This easy recipe is really hearty and great for winter. Cooked in one pot to save on washing up, this is an economical dish to serve to family and friends.

 

Lemon Roast Chicken

Roasting your spuds in with the chicken will make them lovely and crispy. You can use the cooking juices to make a tasty gravy and the leftover bones to make a Chicken Stock.

 

Asian Pulled Chicken Salad

Pull apart a ready-roasted chicken to whip up this healthy, vibrant, low-calorie dish in just 20 minutes.

 

Cottage Pie

This delicious dinner-time favourite can easily be adapted to include your favourite ingredients.

Vegetable Chow Mein

This is a lovely, colourful Chinese dish of noodles and vegetables stir-fried together to make a quick and tasty take-away dish.

 

Breaded Fish

Try making this easy, quick and healthy baked fish instead of buying battered fish. Serve with Roasted Lemon and Herb Potato Wedges for a home-made alternative to take-away Fish and Chips.

 

Courgette Falafels with Tzatziki

A great way to make falafels even more delicious is to add masses of grated courgette to the mixture – it's also a sneaky way of getting your five a day.

 

Chorizo & Butterbean Stew

This inexpensive dish makes a satisfying low-calorie midweek meal.

 

Chicken & Butternut Sage Risotto

This is a great way to use up leftover chicken. Butternut squash is a type of pumpkin which is smaller and sweeter than the large orange types.
