    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!

    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.

    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.
