Couscous is a traditional North African dish that has become popular in many countries. It is a versatile ingredient and can be used in anything, from a light salad to a hearty family recipe.
Apples give a delicious flavour to these low fat Christmas muffins.
No Christmas meal is complete without a traditional plum pudding. But this year, you don’t have to sacrifice your Christmas pud if you don’t want to pile on the pounds. This scrumptious version is full of flavour and has less than half the fat of a traditional recipe.
Tinned beans are a great staple to have in your kitchen. They are a fantastic alternative carbohydrate source to use in place of potatoes and pastas and work exceptionally well in soups and casseroles, as this easy and delicious sausage casserole shows.
This recipe originated when I had a lump of ginger to use up and decided to combine it with lentils, onions, chickpeas and spices. It is a fantastic curry, easy to make, satisfying and tasty, perfect for winter evenings and freezes excellently.
A really simple dish to make and although the cook time is 45 minutes, that’s mostly in the oven, so this dish cooks itself as you spend your time doing more enjoyable things. If you prefer you can replace the chicken with white fish for an equally delicious and healthy meal for all the family.
Tantalising flavours make this healthy tikka masala a winner on all levels.
This makes a great low fat alternative to the traditional pannacotta or cheescake. Make the compote without the cassis, as it is really versatile and can be added to porridge or low fat natural yoghurts for a healthy breakfast or snack.
Like all soups, you need to allow it to simmer to really get the flavours running through it, but it’s worth the wait.
A tasty alternative to a lunchtime sandwich. This is even better if prepared and left overnight in a fridge to let all the flavours soak through.
