Toulouse sausage puy lentil stew

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

If you thought there was no way you could turn the humble sausage into a sophisticated dish, well frankly, you thought wrong. This sausage and lentil stew is elegant enough to serve at a dinner party, but is still warm and comforting enough to snaffle from a bowl in front of the TV. Do try to get your hands on some good-quality sausages for this dish and make sure to use Puy lentils as they hold their shape far better than other varieties.

Lime and Coconut Chicken

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

There is something altogether soothing about this recipe. The usual heat you'd expect from an Asian-inspired recipe bows out to make way for the more aromatic and fragrant coriander, lime zest and lemongrass, which is wrapped together by a creamy coconut broth. You could replace the chicken with prawns or sturdy vegetables like sweet potato.

Harissa fish with carrot and mint salad

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Proper healthy fast food for me must be packed with flavour and texture. Some rather healthy ingredients can easily be pumped up with the addition of heat and spice. Harissa is a North African spicy paste that can be made at home easily enough, but for a speedy supper, a jar from the local shops does nicely. The salad is incredibly simple to prepare, just grate the carrot and mix the dressing.

Decent burgers from store-cupboard ingredients, who’d have thought? I love these little Moroccan veggie burgers – they have a great, nutty flavour.

Chilli and Lemongrass Chicken

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

This is a wonderfully fragrant dish that is very easy to prepare. I use chicken thighs here as they have more flavour, but you can easily use chicken breasts instead. The paste made for the sauce can also be used with beef or pork.
