A modification of the traditional potato and cabbage or kale dish, with chunks of potato and a rich cheesiness that my dad exclaims over. Using milk instead of cream makes it healthier.
This is an indulgently creamy four cheese sauce that's perfect with gnocchi or penne.
Cauliflower makes the most divinely creamy, mild, sweet-tasting soup and looks particularly pretty sprinkled with fragrant, dark green chives.
Made with fresh, raw salad vegetables and thickened with bread, this tangy soup is inspired by the Spanish classic, Gazpacho.
Wonderfully refreshing in summer, the fragrant aroma of dill complements the delicate taste of cucumber beautifully. Fresh, zesty mint would make a good alternative to the dill.
Autumn mushrooms give this dish a hearty flavour. Substitute vegetable stock for the chicken stcok and this makes a perfect meal for that vegetarian girlfriend your son is bringing to Christmas dinner. The rest of the family will love it too.
This is a lovely meal suitable for all occasions. I have cooked it for a dinner party and it was very well received. The cooking time is not too long and can be done when guests have arrived.
Our family really enjoys this side dish with a roast when the weather gets nippy. I regard it as comfort food that's sort of healthy if you use dark green cabbage or kale.
These flat and round shaped gnocchi, made with semolina instead of potato, are delicious and must be served super hot! Once tried, you will be addicted to them!
That's right - you can make your very own ricotta cheese at home to enjoy on its own or use in your favourite Italian recipes!
This potato soup has more flavour than any potato soup I have ever had. For a soup less creamy and lower in fat, use full fat milk instead of the single cream -- still tastes great!
Easy to make macaroni cheese, ready in about 1 hour. Mustard and lemon juice add a little kick, too.
Simple, easy and quick salad dressing which would also be nice as a dressing for homemade coleslaw as an alternative to salad cream. Here it serves 2 for a small side salad, but just increase the quantity as required. I made this with shredded lettuce, tomato, spring onion and cucumber. Would be nice as a coleslaw dressing or mixed into cold pasta for a creamy pasta salad dressing.
The robust flavours of sweet orange carrots and deliciously creamy celeriac make the perfect base for this hearty, warming soup.
A different way to cook potatoes. Delicious!
This creamy vegetable side is baked in the oven. You can use any variety of summer squash. Serve with mashed potatoes and meat of your choice.
Don't be afraid to use butter for this recipe, it will make this dish phenomenal and you will need the energy for the cold winter to come!
Evaporated milk makes this sweetcorn chowder extra creamy. It can be served immediately, but is better if left to mellow a few hours.
I mix cottage cheese with a little bit of cream cheese to cut down fat and calories for this creamy spread.
A classic French cheese souffle is not as complicated as one might think. Just make sure that the sauce has cooled down enough to avoid the eggs form curdling, and fold in egg whites carefully.
