    Veggies, beans and cheese sandwiched in tortillas, then fried until golden on both sides. This is a great weeknight supper, ready in a flash - make one quesadilla per person. You can also cut them like a pizza and serve as a starter or party nibble.

    Barley is a much under-rated and seldom used grain, which is a great shame since it has a pleasing flavour and texture as well as being a good source of fibre. Here is it cooked with a medley of vegetables in a lemon and thyme stock. The addition of cooked chicken turns the dish into a great main course.

    Succulent chicken thighs roasted with figs and lemon slices makes for a satisfying and impressive Mediterranean-inspired meal. The slightly sweet and sour sauce is perfect to serve with rice, and helps to caramelise the figs and lemon. Easy, delicious and if you feel the sauce isn't enough it can easily be doubled.

    Juniper berries give this beef stew dish a distinctive flavour. The beef is slowly simmered until meltingly tender, while nourishing pot barley soaks up some of the juices and thickens the rich gravy to make a hearty casserole. Serve with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable such as French beans or spring greens.
