Curry and rice.

Rajma

This lightly spiced Punjabi dish is ideal for those that enjoy milder curries.

Chocolate mousse.

Chocolate mousse

Few recipes can be as delicious yet so easy to make. If making this with the kids, remember they’ll need supervision while heating the chocolate.

Hash.

Sweet potato hash

Sweet potatoes are rich in antioxidants, fibre, potassium, and vitamins A and C, making this a healthy, quick, and easy, lunch.

Stir Fry.

Tasty vegan stir fry

Love a good stir fry but have gone vegan, fear not, this tasty Chinese treat is entirely plant based.

Egg Nog.

Vegan eggnog

Eggnog is a traditional but long overlooked Christmas treat. Here we’ve brought it right up to date, with a dairy-free and egg-free recipe that is suitable for vegans.

Mince pies.

Traditional mince pies

What could be more Christmassy than a traditional mince pie. Having said that they are so lovely hot or cold that there is no reason not to make or eat them at any time of year!

Egg in a hole.

Egg in the Hole (‘V Eggs’)

Whether there is enough to this to consider it a recipe at all is debatable, but it is a really nice snack for when time is short! In the US they call it ‘toad in the hole’ (they don’t have the real thing). In our house, we call them V eggs, because the first time we saw it was in the film ‘V for Vendetta’.

Summer fruit cake.

Summer fruit cake

Why not try this delicious family cake for summer. It is best eaten fresh, but will keep in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Please note that this recipe is designed to be a very occasional treat only, and that is is high in sugars and fat.

Cinnamon apple doughnuts.

Cinnamon apple doughnuts

Our cinnamon apple doughnuts are new twist on an old favourite. Please note however, that this recipe is designed to be a very occasional treat only, and that it is high in sugars and fat.

Strawberries and raspberries.

Eton mess

The pudding takes little time to prepare, can be served directly from the fridge, and the ratio of fruit to ‘less angelic’ ingredients is up to you and your conscience!

Greek salad.

Greek salad

A Greek salad is a tasty but light starter, leaving plenty of room for the main course. Also you can prepare it earlier and throw it together when you’re ready, and left overs (remember to store without dressing) make good lunches if used up in the next couple of days.

Baked camembert

Baked camembert

Enjoy one of the best-known French cheeses in a delicious way, bursting with flavour and coated in breadcrumbs. Make sure the cheese is not too ripe and freeze before cooking to ensure the centre melts when baking.
