Hot smoked salmon and a creamy pesto dressing add punchy flavours to this very simple meal. The warm potatoes make it an acceptable lunch or dinner for all seasons! If salmon isn’t a favourite in your household, there are several other options you could try. Smoked chicken would work well, or a combination of pan fried prawns and chorizo (yum!). […]
Meatloaf is such a classic meal – it’s the ultimate winter comfort food. This easy version has a saucy topping, and is especially delicious served on a pile of creamy sweet potato mash.

If you’re trying to transition to eating more plant-based meals (but […]

For a reduced carb option, cauliflower mash is great too. I’ve used yoghurt rather than the traditional sour cream, partly to make the meal a little lighter, […]
