Lentil Salad with Sunblush Tomatoes and Feta

From: Today

This is one of my all time favourite salads. It has a really moreish taste with a lovely texture. This is one of my 'substantial salad' recipes: salads made with resilient ingredients that are filling, transport well and stay fresh. Lentils are economical, highly nutritious and easy to cook. This salad makes a great packed lunch, and will stay fresh in the fridge for three days. Delicious hot or cold, served with grilled fish or on its own.

Colourful chickpea salsa wraps

From: Today

This is a great recipe for a light lunch or supper-colourful, crunchy and figure friendly. The chickpea base has a wonderful flavour and texture, you wont miss the meat at all! Chickpeas are low calorie and fibre rich, keeping you fuller for longer and balancing blood sugar levels. The filling will stay fresh in the fridge for 3 days and makes a super packed lunch. Go easy on the sour cream and grated cheese for a thinner dinner.

Mum's Coq au Vin Blanc

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Coq au Vin Blanc was a regular winter dish in my house when we were growing up. I have distinct memories of it steaming up the kitchen windows while we did our homework on the kitchen table. It's a wonderfully warming meal, perfect for cold evenings. Chicken joints such as thighs and legs are often far cheaper to buy than chicken breasts, and meat cooked on the bone always seems to have more flavour.

Turkey Meatloaf with a Spicy Bean Stew

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

On a recent visit to New York City, I tried the meatloaf in Kitchenette, a cool retro diner, and have been craving it ever since, which was why this recipe was born. It's true, unashamed comfort food and should be celebrated for being just that. You can make one big meatloaf and serve it in slices or I sometimes like to make mini ones and serve each sitting proudly on top of the spicy bean stew.

Fridge Leftovers Frittata

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Even the most sorry-looking kitchens should have a few eggs, veggies and a bit of leftover cheese knocking around. My fridge-leftovers frittata is a great little lunchtime dish; it's a filling base for lots of additions, depending on what's in your kitchen. Try adding leftover ham, chorizo, spinach, peas, herbs, all sorts really.

Moroccan Spiced Chicken

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

This is a brilliant combination of warming flavours and pure fresh spice. A lovely, quick way to make a meal a little different whilst keeping things really simple and light. Spiced chicken, zingy mayonnaise and crisp green salad, yum!
