Most people associate this classic Spanish dish with seafood or chorizo, but as usual, it can be enjoyed without compromising your health, in a delicious plant-based way. With the delightful spices saffron and paprika bringing colour, heat and of course, antioxidants, the richness of a slow cooked tomato and capsicum saucey broth, and the texture of perfectly sautéed veggies, beans and peas together with al dente rice, this is a dinner party sensation. No man will leave hungry!

Lentil & Mushroom Cottage Pie

Difficulties:  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  
A hearty dish without being heavy. The ground flaxseeds not only help you reach your omega 3 intake for the day, but act as a bulking agent to make the lentil "mince" stay thick and stew-like. Cauliflower in place of potato mash keeps this dish weight-loss-friendly and light, whilst still tasting amazing!

1, 2, 3 Curry!

Difficulties:  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  
This is quick, it is easy, it is adaptable, it is nutritious - which is why it is a weekly staple for me. The combo of tomatoes and coconut milk plus the water thins it out so it is not too heavy/fatty per serving. The veggies can be swapped for your favourites, and added in accordingly to how long each takes to cook but not overcook! Lastly, curry powder and other spices are the perfect seasonings to give it flavour, no fancy or expensive pastes or methods required. A bay leaf or two can always be added, but are not crucial. Everyones a chef with this warming bowl of goodness! There is no need to cook a starch, as grains are also suggested - and for a lighter version stick to just legumes/tofu/tempeh and the veggies.
