    This salad is a kaleidoscope of colour and taste - black beans, sweetcorn, green peppers and tomatoes. Lime juice, garlic and green chilli give it some punch. It can also be used as a dip with tortilla crisps.

    I'll just say it: I am trying to eat less cheese. It is horrifying to me gastronomically, but appeals to my wish to eat more healthily. My family loves polenta, but how to make it taste as creamy and flavourful without the cheese I have come to rely on. The sun-dried tomatoes and rosemary make the polenta really tasty, but the basil-infused olive oil was the real secret to success. This is my first attempt. It worked really well for the adults, but the smaller kids turned up their noses.

    This delicious vegetarian stew is hearty in texture but rather delicate in flavour. Fresh or frozen garden peas may be used.

    An easy winter fruit dessert that's good for you too. For something a bit more indulgent, try serving with creme fraiche or meringues.

    This is a colourful, spicy Mexican-style salad with loads of vegetables. You can use lime juice instead of lemon if you prefer.

    I love roasting purple sprouting broccoli so that the edges get a bit crunchy and the stalks are still firm.
