Velvety asparagus soup, lovely green colour, great with crunchy rolls. My friend gave me this recipe, it originally used chicken stock. When my daughter became vegetarian, I modified it with vegetable stock instead! It also doubles easily. This soup will tempt even asparagus haters!

A creamy butternut squash soup to make in the microwave. Adapt the recipe to suit your taste, with nutmeg, cloves and a hint of cinnamon.

I was first introduced to squash whilst I was living in America for three months. I was told a few different ways of cooking it, but this is my favourite. In the States, I used acorn squash, but butternut is just as good, and I'm sure other types of winter squash would work well too.

These vegetarian burritos are folded into a wedge instead of being rolled. They are simply delicious. Flour tortillas are filled with refried beans, spring onions, tomato, olives, lettuce, avocado, cheese and soured cream.

To speed things up, I cook the veg in the microwave and sometimes use tinned tomatoes. This makes a quick dinner served with rice or naan.

This risotto is quick and easy to make. You also won't have to stand over the hob stirring constantly. Enjoy as a side dish or a main course.

I discovered this recipe by accident but have been making it ever since for a quick, easy lunch or dinner for one. The tomatoes and spinach soften easily in the microwave and the cheese melts to create a sauce and give the consistency of risotto.

This is a fantastic warm tofu sandwich that even tofu-haters will love. Smoked tofu, Cheddar, spinach, Parmesan and Ranch dressing are wrapped together in a wholemeal flour tortilla.

I am actually in love with cheese so I tried this amazingly easy cheese and potato and turns out that everyone 's in love with it, and bonus, it doesn't take a lot of time.

This is a super-easy side dish. There is no prep required and it's cooked in the microwave. Caster sugar, apple cider vinegar, mixed spice and cornflour are heated in a microwave until thick, then stirred with beetroot and mandarin oranges.
