This spicy stew is simple to make with canned tomatoes and flageolet beans. Try serving with thick plain yoghurt and crusty bread or boiled rice for a complete meal.
A simple, hearty and tasty vegetarian dish. Good as a light main, side, or wrapped in a flour tortilla with cheese. I always make a double batch and freeze some.
Instead of the usual chilli con carne, try this healthy tofu chilli that's chock-a-block with beans and veggies, too. For even more veg, try adding a chopped red pepper and some diced courgette.
A colourful combination of tomatoes, green pepper and courgette. Rice rounds out this one-pot meal, which is so easy and healthy - a great way to get to your five a day!

Good food does not have to be complicated or time-consuming.

A warm, savoury vegan version of an Indian favourite that is easy to make. Serve over basmati rice with yoghurt on the side.
This is a very easy and warming stew that is perfect for the slow cooker. Easily tweaked according to your own taste and preferences. You can omit the salmon and have it as a vegetarian meal and adjust the amount of pepper depending on how hot you like it. I put this on in the morning before leaving for work and come home 9 hours later to a yummy dish! Serve with crusty bread or Jamaican sweet bread for extra authenticity.
Can also be made with chicken or beef. A traditional soup made by my parents and grandparents and a traditional winter soup in Northern Ireland and especially popular served as a starter to Christmas dinner. Pure, simple, wholesome comforting and natural food. As with all one pot dishes, it always tastes better the following day when all the ingredients have had time to marinate and got to know each other so if you want to impress, make it the day before serving. Enjoy.

This hearty chilli has loads of beans, lentils and tofu to provide that 'full' feeling. For best results, use dried beans soaked overnight. I prefer to let the chilli sit overnight in the fridge too before serving. Garnish with chopped fresh coriander or parsley.
A very delicious winter stew. It's a great family meal and really filling. Serve in bowls with warm crusty bread on the side.
A quick, healthy and comforting supper fix after a long day's work. Serve with rice or naan. Also great as a jacket potato topping!
