Quick Mussels with Carrot

From: Today

Mussels are available all year round from most good fish mongers. They are a quick and easy meal, be it as a starter to share at a dinner party or a main course, served with home cut chips. They are also very reasonably priced, with a kilo costing around €4.00. Be sure to only use mussels that are fully closed prior to cooking and discard any unopened ones if they have not opened during the cooking process.

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.
