This is a dish from the Eastern seaboard of America, where the pork and beans are traditionally simmered slowly in an earthenware casserole. It is the kind of dish that you can prepare ahead and leave to bubble away while you tend to other things. Baked jacket potatoes and crusty bread are perfect for soaking up the delicious sauce.
Here's a hearty and satisfying chilli – without the carne (meat) – that can be made in minutes. This version combines two varieties of beans with sweetcorn in a rich tomato sauce flavoured with herbs, fresh chilli and chilli sauce. Serve with boiled rice or plenty of warm crusty bread.
This curry from Mozambique can be made with chicken or prawns. Goes well with tomato or spicy onion chutney.
Mixed with rice and plenty of vegetables, a small amount of succulent salmon and prawns goes a long way, making a good balance of protein and carbohydrate in this temptingly spicy, Louisiana-style dish. As an added bonus for the busy cook, it is cooked in just one pan and makes a complete meal on its own.
Chicken marinated in lime juice, cumin and fresh coriander, then threaded onto skewers with chunky vegetables. Serve with rice, salsa and warm tortillas.
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.
This is a really easy, healthy and delicious dish. It's a one-pot pasta meal, which combines pasta, chicken, red wine, tomatoes, spinach and topped with Mozzarella.
Spanish inspired all in one pot dish with rice, chicken, celery, chorizo and peppers. Summer on a plate. Serve with crusty bread, a good bottle of wine and eat alfresco under the sun (optional). You can use brown, long grain or basmati rice for this dish.
