This is a hearty take on Pasta Carbonara, with peas added to boost the protein and add interest.
Frozen Food Day
A healthy, quick, breakfast smoothie.
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.
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.
A delicious combination that makes cauliflower look and taste interesting.
A very quick trifle recipe.
This pea soup is quite different from most, because it uses fresh peas and is meant to be served chilled.
This is a delicious baked egg, spinach and cheese dish. Serve for brunch, or for a light supper with a side salad.
Lovely with bacon. Try these for a summer breakfast, or for an American southwestern themed lunch or light supper with a side salad.
The flavours of the roasted corn are fantastic.
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.
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.
A very rich-tasting fish pie.
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.
This is kind of like an eggs benedict.
Good with mashed or plain boiled potatoes.
A very tasty way to present peas.
Smoky bacon is really, really nice with this. You can also use ham.
Rich-tasting potato fritters.
Nice with some sour cream with fresh dill weed in it, or with side dollops of Greek yoghurt.
The snow peas add great texture and colour to this risotto.
This is a great meal for kids to prepare for themselves with your help.
This recipe takes your runner beans on a trip to the sunny south.
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.
