Healthy Recipes

Cranberry Christmas Cocktail

This no guilt cocktail is a delicious alternative to mulled wine and a great way to add some Vitamin C to your diet (provided you don’t overheat it). Just what you need for a miserable winter’s day. Makes me feel very Christmassy! It is non-alcoholic so no-one needs to be left out but you could add a nip of brandy if you wanted to.

Parnsip and Ginger Soup

This warming winter soup is very tasty and a great way to use root vegetables while they are in season. The ginger adds a nice amount of heat which blends perfectly with the sweetness of the parsnips. Adding toasted almonds adds a little bit of crunch and interest.

Roasted Pumpkin Soup

This tasty warming soup is easy to make and an ideal way to use your left-over pumpkin flesh after carving your Halloween lanterns. When pumpkins are out of season, you can use butternut squash instead. Roasting the pumpkin flesh makes it sweeter and more tasty but if you are short of time you could leave this bit out, see ‘Time Saver’ below.

Lentil & Aubergine Bake

This lentil and tomato filling is so versatile – it can be the base for lots of different recipes. Make a bigger batch and freeze in portions. I use for this Lentil & Aubergine Bake but I also serve on top of spaghetti as (Lentil Bolagnaise) or serve in a pastry case and top with cheese and sesame seeds (Lentil and Tomato Flan) or its just as delicious served just on a jacket potato.

Also nice with sweet potato wedges. Served with brown rice it makes a complete protein so ideal for vegan and vegetarians too.
