I picked up two perfectly sized single serving cauliflowers from Second Helpings the food waste charity in Stamford, Lincolnshire that I love to support. Their mission is to reduce the amount of food waste that goes into landfill and they have been a God send to vulnerable and low income families since the start of lock down as for a small donation you can pick up fresh fruit and vegetables plus staples that will keep you going.

We love this really simple dish, that tastes amazing and feels like you’ve spent a lot of time and care in the kitchen when the truth is it’s a simple one pot dish! Do marinade the chicken overnight to get the true full-on flavour.

Serves 4

Ingredients

4 x 180g skinless chicken breasts

2 red peppers, deseeded and sliced

1 courgette, sliced into 1cm discs

1 red onion, cut into wedges

4 whole garlic cloves, peeled and left whole

16 cherry tomatoes

500g cooked Puy lentils

Whose joining us on Weds 6 May to cook with their kids. This week at 2.30pm we're adapting one of my favourite breakfast muffins to 'lock down' so you can use whatever staples you have in the cupboard. These are really fail proof so go for it. You can even add grated carrot, courgette or pumpkin! 

Makes about 20 cookies 

When you’re home alone with the kids and need food that’s nutritious, filling, cheap and easy to prepare this is it. Get the kids to put on their aprns at 5pm this Friday 3rd April and help make tea.

This great ‘baked bean’ dish is so versatile. Don’t have butter beans? Use any other tinned or dried beans, which you’ve pre-cooked, or chickpeas. You could even try it with lentils.

Add any greens you have wilting at the bottom of the fridge, spring greens, spinach, kale, sprouts.

I recently saw a cry go up on the Riverford Tribe FB page (where I get my organic fruits and veg) asking for ideas for what to do with a glut of cauliflower. There’s rarely a glut in our house! When they’re in season, we usually have my Moroccan spiced cauliflower steaks every week! And I love cauliflower rice and Cauliflower couscous. But I thought it was about time I came up with a hearty, warming soup for those cold days when you want something warm for lunch, and you have a slightly yellowing cauli in the fridge!
