I use puy lentils in this delicious, refreshing and filling salad, but you can also use green or brown lentils.
I grind my own spices just before using them so they are fragrant, but you can use pre-ground versions. The only one that may be tricky to find ground is caraway, in which case crush caraway seeds in a pestle and mortar. The dressing is also good spread on bruschetta or with fish.
This is my favourite comfort soup for rainy days. It's what I make when I am home all day and feel just plain hungry and however much I eat, it always leaves me feeling satisfied and never like I've over-indulged!
This is a great mid-week supper that only uses a handful of ingredients and is very simple to prepare, yet deliciously satisfying. The carrot purée can be used as a side in many other dishes. The beta-carotene that carrots are incredibly rich in can slow down signs of ageing as it acts as an antioxidant and protects against cell damage.
This simple tart is one that everyone, including your gluten-free friends, can enjoy. Serve with a crisp green salad. You will need a non-stick fluted rectangular loose base flan tin, measuring 31cm x 21 cm.
I have developed many cookie recipes, but none as delicious as this one. You pretty much can't go wrong. If you like, swap plain dark chocolate for sea salt-spiked dark chocolate - it works really well.
