Almond milk

I thought that nut milk was a modern idea. They have become particularly popular in recent years as people become more environmentally aware. But did you know that they date back to the medieval period, as far back as the 13th century!

5 bean chilli

Super easy and really tasty. We make this quite a lot. We often have it whilst out camping with salty nacho chips, but rice works well too.

As there are only 2 and a half of us, I freeze the leftovers from this, for a quick dinner the following week.

Vegetable Thai green curry

I love a Thai green curry, and its so easy to make the sauce yourself, rather than buying one in a jar.

Curried chickpeas

These make a great healthy snack. They are rather more-ish though, so don’t last very long!

Fruity courgette cake

Lightly spiced and fruity, this cake is delicious and another great way of using up this years courgette glut. I’m sure it still counts toward my 5-a-day, right?

Vegan Chocolate cupcakes

Don’t tell the kids about the courgette, they’ll never know that you are sneaking in some healthy veg!

Nutroast

This is a traditional Sunday roast alternative – just as time consuming to make, but tasty and super healthy.

Spicy roasted chickpeas

These make a great healthy snack. They are rather more-ish though, so don’t last very long!
