    • baked potato and pork chilli

      Pork chilli baked potatoes

      This spicy pork chilli with baked potatoes will keep you warm in a cold autumnal or winter evening. Cook the mince with some garlic, cumin and coriander, not forgetting the chilli powder for extra kick. Tinned mixed beans and tomato passata will complete the tasty set and guarantee a delicious meal. Jacket potatoes are the ultimate British comfort food, so put your slippers on, and for maximum easiness, get your spuds ready-baked from the store and just heat them up in a microwave. Top with sour cream and parsley, and enjoy in good company. For a tasty meat-free version, just use Quorn mince instead, as it works just as well.

    • pea, halloumi and sweet potato cakes

      Pea, halloumi and sweet potato cakes

      Pea, halloumi and sweet potato cakes are an instant winner when it comes to light lunches. The sweet-tasting potato is the base of this savoury cake: soften it in a microwave and scoop out the filling. Lime zest gives the cakes a bit of citrus taste, while the savoury Cypriot-originated cheese halloumi and peas provide texture. Coat the golden-yellow cakes with polenta and fry them in a hot pan. Serve these delicious vegetarian cakes straight away with salad and chilli sauce. This tasty recipe makes eight bigger cakes, or you can make several mini cakes. They are also a great veggie alternative for children's burgers. If you’re on the lookout for health benefits, you’ll be pleased to hear that sweet potatoes are filled with vitamin C, and you’ll get plenty of other important nutrients, too!

      Jamie Oliver's prawn & avo cocktail salad, new potatoes, crunchy veg & cress

    • Summer egg and chips

      Summer egg and chips

      Summer egg and chips is a take on the beloved classic. This one uses sweet potatoes and is served with a summer slaw that's lighter than a traditional recipe, as it has a lot less mayonnaise and is made with natural yogurt instead. The sweet potato wedges take around 30 minutes in the oven, and in the meantime you can get working on the slaw and frying the eggs. Despite the name, you can definitely make this recipe year-round! The slaw is also perfect for serving up at a barbecue or picnic - people will love how light and crunchy it is and it goes wonderfully well with barbecued meat or fish!

      Slimming World's fettucine with tenderstem broccoli

      This recipe is a quick, simple but tasty way to turn store cupboard pasta into something delicious and so satisfying.

    • Peri Peri Prawns and spicy rice

      Peri peri prawns and spicy rice

      This zesty dish of peri peri prawns with red and green peppers and turmeric goes really well with some spicy rice. Let the uncooked prawns soak up the peri peri flavour in a fridge before cooking them over a high heat. The lemon-and-chilli flavoured peppery spice truly brings out the best in prawns. Smoked paprika and green and red peppers with mixed vegetable stock give the rice the extra oomph it needs to really compliment the spicy flavour. This colourful seafood plate looks great and tastes even better, so give it a try!
