Chestnuts - there are few things that say winter more than this irresistible nut. Find loads of sweet and savoury wintry delights, from chestnut soup and stuffing, to cakes and more.
Packed with flavour and texture, this stuffing is low in fat and high in fibre and carbohydrate. Stuffed into a bird, or baked alongside, it enables you to serve smaller portions of meat – with lots of vegetables – which means your meal will be in the right, healthy proportions. If you have a large bird, just increase the quantity of stuffing.

Stir-frying is a quick method of cooking that retains many of the vitamins and minerals that may be lost during boiling. This is a great way to cook Brussels sprouts and cabbage, sure to tempt even the most reluctant eaters of greens. If liked, serve with wholemeal or seeded rolls.
