You've heard the slogan "Five a day", haven't you? With this velvety soup, you'll find that even the children are eager to eat their veg.
I learned how to make this while visiting my husband's family in Syria. It can be a healthy, fast and easy vegan main for lunch or dinner that is surprisingly filling when eaten with pitta bread. It is also a flavourful side dish.
This creamy pilaf incorporates the fluffy, nutty-flavoured grain, quinoa, with a decadent and delicious hard goat cheese. This has an amazing flavour and texture. Try serving with steamed salmon. I think this would work well with pine nuts as well as a variety of other cheeses.
This healthy dish is loaded with spinach - a great way to your five a day.
A lovely apple vinaigrette makes the fresh beetroot, avocado and apples in this gorgeous salad come alive. This is a fun salad to serve guests arranged and layered on serving plates.
Beetroot was my sworn enemy until I tried it like this; it's a great way to use any root vegetables. I think the beetroot adds a beautiful red colour to the dish, but if it bothers you to serve pinkish vegetables, substitute parsnip, swede or any similar vegetable; be creative!
This combination is so good together and it's a great way to get your kids eating fruit. I make this for my daughter's lunch and she loves it.
A healthy, bright salad. Use light mayonnaise to save on fat and calories.
These are a delicious, healthy alternative to regular chips. Sweet potatoes have more fibre than regular potatoes, too.
The sweetness of barbecued vegetables is balanced by a tart tomato sauce, which mixes perfectly with simple couscous. A lovely light summer meal that is sure to get you to your five a day.
