Ham Hock, Spinach and Cheese Crêpes

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Whenever I visit Paris, one of the first things I always order is a 'crêpe avec jambon et fromage'. This recipe is my little twist on that – it makes vibrant green pancakes that are really nice as a brunch or lunch dish. Ham hock is a cheap and tasty alternative to prime slices of ham.

Serve with some crusty bread to mop up the liquid!

Ribollita

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Ribollita is an Italian soup that was traditionally seen as peasant food. The great thing about this soup is that it makes an ideal base for any additional ingredients that you might want to add. Think of it as an opportunity to give a last moment of glory to any miserable veggies left at the bottom of your fridge! I keep leftover Parmesan rinds in my freezer, which I add to sauces and soups like this to give a unique rich flavour. Add a couple while the soup is simmering and simply fish them out before serving.

The sweetest of treats for guests - or just yourself!

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.

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.

Teriyaki Salmon with Noodles and a Peanut Dressing

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

The fantastic thing about this recipe is that all it takes is to marinate the salmon and pop in the oven when your guests arrive. Serve with noodles in a peanut butter dressing for a tasty main course!
