    The sweetness of barbecued vegetables is balanced by a tart tomato sauce, which mixes perfectly with simple couscous. A lovely light summer meal that is sure to get you to your five a day.

    An fairly easy to cook dish with a kick. Quite a healthy dish with plenty of vegetables and fairly cheap too. Just scale down the portions for fewer people. I tend to make it as described and chill the remainder for lunches.

    One of the joys of a roast chicken or turkey is the tender meat left over – perfect for rustling up a super-quick meal like this one. Serve these delicious stuffed peppers with warm crusty bread and a crisp green salad.

    This is great for a party, with interesting textures and flavours combined in one delicious salad. Feel free to use vegetable stock if you want to make this a vegan dish. Leftovers store well refrigerated for several days.

    Middle Eastern spices make a lively couscous. Raisins and pine nuts add texture and flavour. This dish works warm as a side dish, or can be served cool as a salad.

    A salad that tastes gorgeous. Couscous, fresh vegetables and rocket leaves, chicken and garlic herb salad dressing combine for a main dish salad.

    This vegetable-rich couscous is lower in fat than most pilafs and it makes a marvellous, healthy main dish, or an excellent side dish for almost any simply cooked meat or poultry, when it will serve 8 or more. Any leftovers can be used as a delicious stuffing for chicken or other poultry or game birds.

    A tasty filling salad full of vegetables and antioxidants goes well with any meat dish but my favourite is roast chicken. Could be a meal on its own for veg lovers.
