I'm not a lover of stews but my partner is so I started making this one for him. He loves it so he gets it every two weeks and complains if I suggest making a beef one instead. Also this needs to be made the day before you plan on eating it.

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.

I wanted a quick and easy meal to prepare for the slow cooker which was a tasty and economical treat to come home to. Lamb is cooked tender and tasty with full flavours from Heinz Lentil Soup, curry powder and vegetables. A hearty meal for the family.

My version of moussaka, the classic Greek dish. My family love it and its great for a dinner party too. Make it the previous day for the best flavour and add/make the topping on the day of eating! Serve with crusty bread and a Greek or mixed salad. Tip - You can make this without pre-frying the aubergine, just layer the raw slices (no thicker than 5mm) as described and add 10 minutes to final cooking time.
