Spiced Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Pie Recipe

This not-too-sweet pie has a slight caramel quality to it and is delicious served at room temperature or straight from the fridge. With a delicious walnut crust inspired by Hetty McKinnon, it is a nourishing, nutrient-packed riff on the traditional American sweet potato pie. If you can find some nutmeg to grate yourself, use it — it makes all the difference.

Marmalade and Poppy Seed Cake Recipe

Marmalade always makes me think of my dear Nanna who was from Lancashire in England and would always smother it on toast. I’m sure she would have loved this cake, particularly for its secret ingredient: cannellini beans! This cake offers a wonderfully light but flavoursome taste, sweetened only with honey and that gorgeous sticky marmalade drizzle. And, no, you can’t taste the beans at all.

Meg Thompson's Broccolini, Walnut & Stilton Salad Recipe

Broccolini, Walnut and Stilton Salad Recipe

Broccoli and Stilton are a combination I became familiar with living in London where it’s a common feature on restaurant menus. It’s also the first place I tried watercress, which, despite its unassuming nature, is highly nutritious, given its calcium, fibre, vitamin C and antioxidant content. This is a simple salad that combines the three and adds walnuts for some delicious crunch.

BBQ Tofu and Soba Noodle Rolls Recipe

This dish does require a little prep; however, it can be done the day before or in the morning. It’s a DIY meal that everyone can get involved with, even the kids. The BBQ sauce may sound like a lot of effort but once made you have a really versatile flavour bomb to use with everything. There are a number of online versions of this kind of sauce but this is my favourite combination. I recommend doubling the quantity!
