A quick and simple chicken spaghetti recipe using Sicilian flavours, from the series How To Poach A Chicken. This series takes a medium chicken and makes family meals from it for 7 days.
This tasty salad is made using brown rice for fibre, that’s been cooked in chicken stock, for extra flavour. Quick and easy to make, you don’t need to put the oven on when its baking hot and you just want some dinner.
Filling from the brown rice and those lovely vegetables, it’s less than 400 calories too! Inexpensive too to help those purses and wallets.
This gorgeous crumble has a nutty, seedy, oaty topping and a creamy, chicken and mushroom base. It will freeze very well, either cooked or uncooked. Lovely to have a home made ready meal in the freezer that just needs to be defrosted.
This is a very simple dish, cooked on the hob, in a single pan. Just aubergine, tomatoes and olive oil, simmered slowly to an unctuous silkiness. Absolutely gorgeous just on its own, hot or room temperature. Stir through pasta, top a jacket potato or use as part of a mezze.
This easy swede mash can be used a side or a main course. Make it vegan by using a vegan cream. Swede mash is a common side dish, but this has fresh ginger, generous nutmeg and chilli to add extra flavour and a touch of creaminess.
It tastes really good and may even convert small (or large!) veggie phobes!
Easy to make, wild garlic pesto is pungent, delicious and made from wild garlic foraged from the woods, or Allium triquetrum which is what I have growing in my garden.
