Celeriac mash

A great low calorie, low carbohydrate alternative to mashed potato

Chicken parmigiana with spinach salad

Either feed the family or freeze the cooked chicken parmigiana in individual portions. Remember to quarter the salad quantities if just serving one though!

Tuscan Zucchini Soup

A light and delicious soup that makes the most of courgettes/zucchini and freezes well

Hot and Sour Soup

Deliciously light and spicy soup which can be made with prawns or chicken

Leek and Crunchy Carrot Gratin

A yummy leek based vegetarian main dish, or a good accompaniment to sausages (baked in the oven at the same time). With the vegetables, milk, cheese, breadcrumbs and nuts, this has a good balance of ingredients.

Roast Pumpkin and Glazed Walnut Salad

Glorious colour to brighten up a dull day. This would be very good with some bacon lardons running through it, or topped with chopped feta or blue cheese or slices of taleggio.
