This is a great meal for kids to prepare for themselves with your help.
Frozen Food Day
This is a hearty take on Pasta Carbonara, with peas added to boost the protein and add interest.
A sophisticated but really easy vegetable side dish. If you end up liking it, you’ll have it easily committed to memory in no time flat.
Nice with some sour cream with fresh dill weed in it, or with side dollops of Greek yoghurt.
If you want a fancy presentation, you can put this in one of those loose-bottomed pie / quiche pans whose bottom pops out. Otherwise, use whatever type of pie dish you have to hand, preferably a 9 inch / 23cm round pie tin.
A very rich-tasting fish pie.
You’re on your own for proportions. Basically, cook up as many frozen carrots as you figure you want to serve per person.
A very quick trifle recipe.
This is a very colourful, and tasty vegetable side dish, and very easy to prepare, with a flair of a traditional French to it with the braised lettuce. Cooking lettuce might seem a jarring idea, but the French do cook lettuce as well as eating it fresh.
This recipe is, of course, a nod to Eggs Florentine. Unlike Eggs Florentine, it’s easier to get it to the table hot, rather than disappointingly luke-warm.
For many people, a creamed spinach dish is often pivotal in getting them to give spinach another chance, after a childhood of being served boiled spinach out of a can.
Good with mashed or plain boiled potatoes.
This pea soup is quite different from most, because it uses fresh peas and is meant to be served chilled.
A very tasty way to present peas.
This is kind of like an eggs benedict.
Rich-tasting potato fritters.
The flavours of the roasted corn are fantastic.
Very tasty, great for brunches.
Smoky bacon is really, really nice with this. You can also use ham.
This is a delicious baked egg, spinach and cheese dish. Serve for brunch, or for a light supper with a side salad.
This recipe takes your runner beans on a trip to the sunny south.
The snow peas add great texture and colour to this risotto.
A delicious combination that makes cauliflower look and taste interesting.
Serve as breakfast wraps. Good for on the go, or if served on a plate, serve with something tomato-y such as a salsa, sliced tomatoes, ketchup or a chili sauce.
