A treat suitable for diabetics from Donal Skehan.

Roasted Squash, Coconut and Chilli Soup

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Roasted squash produces wonderful soups with a velvety consistency when blitzed smooth. The addition of coconut milk adds a creamy and exotic flavour, but if you don’t want to use it, you could replace with vegetable stock. This is a warming soup, ideal in autumn and winter. Serves between four and six people.

Sunblush Tomato, Basil and Goat’s Cheese Pasta

From: The Afternoon Show

A nutritious, tasty snack or lunch box filler.

Banoffee Cake

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Banoffee pie has to be one of my desert island desserts and while I still love the pie version, this cake certainly gives it a run for its money with its moist banana sponge layered with a sweet caramel frosting.

Carrageen Jelly

From: Kitchen Hero: Rediscovering The Irish Kitchen

This tasty dish is filled to the brim with nutrients and antioxidants that is best served with a dollop of fresh cream.

Profiterole Mountain

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

I remember staying in an old Irish guesthouse when I was growing up, where a dessert trolley was rolled around the dining room after dinner and you could pick a dessert of your choice. I could never resist creamy profiteroles smothered in a warm, thick chocolate sauce.

Christmas Feast: Roast Turkey with Cranberry and Sage Stuffing

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

For an easier to carve option this Christmas Day, try this rolled turkey breast, which is stuffed with a sweet and aromatic stuffing. I love the combination of maple, orange, smoked bacon and apple spiked with the cranberries, but you can easily adapt this with your own favourite flavours.

Swedish Cinnamon Buns

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Swedish cinnamon buns, or 'Kanelbulle', were the first thing I learned to bake when I stayed in Sweden. Pearl sugar is sprinkled on top to give it that distinctive finishing touch, but if you can't get your hands on any simply sprinkle a little Demerara sugar to finish.

Braised Beef Short Ribs with Red Wine

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

If you've never had beef short ribs before, you're missing out on one of life's great pleasures. Beef short ribs should be so tender that the meat almost falls off the bone with a fork. Serve them with soft Parmesan polenta as suggested here, or they are also delicious with creamy mashed potatoes.

Knockdrinna Farmhouse Cheese Soufflés with Pear Salad And Walnuts

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

These make a very elegant cheese course and are quite easy to prepare. You can make these ahead of time and they will puff up again when you place them back in the oven.
