Boxty Colcannon Pancakes

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Boxty potato pancakes are a traditionally Irish recipe and they come with a great little rhyme that we were taught when growing up: ‘Boxty on the griddle, boxty on the pan, if you can’t bake boxty, sure you’ll never get a man.’ The traditional recipe varies from region to region, but they all use grated raw potato. This is the version that my family makes and they are great with a full Irish breakfast, or I also serve them with pan-fried mackerel and a light salad.

Roasted Beetroot, Feta and Lentil Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

There are a few vegetables I can grow without fail and thankfully one of them is the mighty beetroot, which roasts beautifully and is a great addition to this lentil salad. This dish makes a nice lunchtime dish and is excellent in lunchboxes.

Roasted Squash, Coconut and Chilli Soup

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Roasted squash produces wonderful soups with a velvety consistency when blitzed smooth. The addition of coconut milk adds a creamy and exotic flavour, but if you don’t want to use it, you could replace with vegetable stock. This is a warming soup, ideal in autumn and winter. Serves between four and six people.

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.
