A lovely light meal or lunch

Baked Sweet Potatoes with Cheese and Salsa

I love sweet potatoes. They taste lovely and are super healthy too, packed with vitamins A and C, fibre, and antioxidants. They are also very filling and cheap.

I love mushrooms indiscriminately in all shapes and sizes

Spaghetti with Mushrooms

I love all mushrooms indiscriminately. I could happily eat mushrooms for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I make this dish often in the autumn when root vegetables are at their best

Every time I visit East Africa I always ask for the local Kitheri

Kitheri - Kenyan Vegetable Stew

I love these patties and often make a whole bunch of them to freeze

Tofu and Chickpea Patties

These are probably the patties I make most often. Maybe they would be called nut burgers elsewhere but I call them patties. They are very filling yet nutritious with a lovely, mild taste.

A lovely Indian vegetable dish

Healthy French fries...is that possible? Well yes it is!

French Fries (Chips)

I would never, ever, ever buy deep fried French fries or any other deep fried food for that matter because in my view, anything that is "cooked" in that way is completely ruined.

Simple and healthy, always a good combination

Oven Baked Vegetables with Pasta

A very simple and cheap dish, perfect for the mid week headache of "what should I have for dinner?".

Extremely simple, yet tasty and satisfying
