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.

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.

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.

Salted Peanut Caramel Mud Pie

If you like your sweet treats gooey and chocolatey, then this is the bake for you. A rich chocolate pudding, oozing with a layer of salted caramel and a crunchy topping of peanut brittle – what more could you ask for?

So quick and easy!

Margarita Chicken with Smoky Avocado Corn Salsa

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

This recipe is all about big, bold flavours and is one of my absolute favourite summer dishes. It's perfect for the BBQ, but if the weather doesn't hold up, a griddle pan will do just fine. This is lovely on a plate, but if you wanted, you could toast up some tortilla wraps in the pan and then serve slices of the chicken with the salsa and a generous dollop of sour cream.

Chocolate Tiramisu

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

A perfect make-ahead dessert just like Italian mamma used to make... Creamy layers wrapped together with coffee soaked ladyfinger biscuits and dark and white shavings of chocolate - it can't be beat!

Cranberry and White Chocolate Cookies

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

These make wonderfully chewy and crumbly cookies which are easily adaptable - just use whatever ingredients you might have in the store cupboard. Feel free to swap out the chocolate and raisins with other dried fruit, nuts or seeds.

Griddled Beef and Mint Salad with Toasted Rice and Peanuts

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

On my first visit to Bangkok, it was a hot and sticky night when we arrived and this was the dish we tucked into after wandering the streets. The rather interesting addition, to what would otherwise be an ordinary beef dish, is the toasted ground rice, which adds both texture and a surprisingly smoky, nutty flavour. The original dish doesn’t feature the extra leaves, but I think it makes a wonderful healthy salad.

Braised Crispy Chicken Thighs with Spring Onions, Baby Gem and Peas

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

True comfort food in a matter of minutes; that's what this dish is all about. Crispy chicken in a white wine sauce with wonderful braised greens and a pop of zesty citrus freshness; it really doesn't get better than that for a speedy midweek supper.
