When my kids were small, we used to go to a farm to gather fruit and veg.
When we returned home, this risotto dish made with the leeks we had gathered
was tasty and easy to prepare. –

A warming winter risotto that can be made traditionally or in a pressure
cooker. No hazelnuts? Use almonds or walnuts instead, or skip the nuts
entirely and add chopped mushrooms along with the the leeks.
This is a lovely dish, it can be served on its own for lunch or with chips
or wedges for a filling main course! It is also very quick to make, good
if you want something in a hurry! –
Make this simple, satisfying supper a little healthier - use lean steak
and whole grain baguettes, and instead of full fat mayo, mix together 2
tablespoons each of mayo, natural yoghurt and grainy mustard.
Delicious fishcakes, coated in crumbs and gently fried until golden. The
peppery watercress is a perfect balance to the salty fish. –
Save time and do what one reviewer did - skip steaming the haddock, as
it's already cooked. Simply flake it into the mash and you're sorted!
A quick and flavourful Italian classic. Pass the Parmesan and enjoy! –

Easy Italian fare that the entire family will enjoy, and it's low fat
to boot. Drain any excess fat from the pancetta to save calories, and try
wholewheat pasta for a healthy serving of whole grains.
A delicious version of lasagne for those of us who are health conscious.
Wholewheat pasta, turkey mince and green veg make this lasagne healthier
than most. Use no-cook lasagne sheets and frozen chopped spinach to save

Warming yet full of sunny flavours from the Med. Instead of chickpeas,
butter beans or cannellini beans would work a treat. Serve this easy
