A firm favourite in our family, corned beef stew is a relatively cheap dish, always guaranteed to please. Using the quantities below, this should provide 6-8 servings although as with all good stews, it can be kept in the fridge for 2-3 days and be reheated, tasting just as good as the moment you made it! Alternatively, lower or increase the amounts depending on your requirements.
Nothing beats a traditional pie, and this one with a healthy touch uses ‘light’ shredded vegetable suet for the fresh rosemary-flavoured crust.
This is a hearty, warm and healthy soup. Easy to make for beginners. I came up with this recipe when I was looking for a soup to make for my partner and I to take to work for lunch. I needed something that would last at least 6 portions and that would be suitable for freezing. I wanted to ensure I was keeping the budget low and the goodness high so opted for swede instead of potato and beans instead of meat. I believe this soup would be to everyone's liking, even the kids.
Easy to make beef stew. Serve with mashed potatoes or buttery bread. Takes about 3 hours but is worth the wait :)

Enjoy the taste of the Mediterranean with this vegetarian pie. It's packed with vegetables and chickpeas cooked in red wine with tomatoes and Italian herbs, and is topped with a Parmesan, sun-dried tomato and fresh basil mash. Serve with a seasonal green vegetable, such as Savoy cabbage, for extra vitamins and minerals.
Slim pasta spirals called fusilli are delicious cooked in a casserole of beef and vegetables. The dried, uncooked pasta is added towards the end of the cooking time so that it retains its al dente texture while still absorbing the savoury flavours of the meat, vegetables and oregano in the rich stew.
The coconut and the spices complement each other beautifully. An easy dish that goes well over noodles, rice or pasta.
Diced pork, courgettes, peppers, sweet potato, onions and button mushrooms delicately cooked in the slow cooker and served with crusty bread on the side to mop up the delicious juices. Perfect for making ahead and eating alfresco on warm nights or equally comforting in colder weather.
This scrumptious curried lamb dish is prepared with everyday ingredients – most you probably have to hand right now – yet you'll be surprised by its authentic flavour. We've used the leanest cut of lamb.
