Fish pie is usually popular with children, who may not otherwise be keen on fish. In this version, leek and watercress are added to boost the vitamin value, and sliced potato and cheese make an appealing topping. Try it with roasted tomatoes on the vine, cooked for about 15 minutes alongside the pie, or steamed broccoli.

Chicken thighs are used in this recipe, but skinless breasts could be used instead. Be careful not to overcook, as the result could be rather dry chicken. Serve with warm flour tortillas, spicy salsa and soured cream.

A light, colourful curry that is very quick and easy to make, this is packed with antioxidant-rich vegetables. Sweet potatoes, in particular, are an excellent source of beta-carotene and vitamin C, and have a higher vitamin E content than any other vegetable. Serve with naan bread.
