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.

Bun Cha: Barbecued Pork Skewers with Herbs and Rice Vermicelli

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Vietnam is all about incredible street food and when I visited the country, this was one of my favourite dishes to eat on a plastic stool at a roadside pop-up vendor. It's a feast of smoky pork skewers, wrapped in lettuce leaves with fresh herbs and dipped in a salty sweet sauce. Barbecue the pork to get the essential smoky element of South East Asian cooking, but a griddle pan will also work. The classic version uses pork belly to form little pork patties, but this is a quicker variation.

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?

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.
