Sofie's rhubarb panna cotta

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

When my girlfriend Sofie was growing up, her grandparents had one of the most amazing vegetable gardens in Sweden, with wild strawberries, and big, bushy apple trees. Huge rhubarb bushes still spring up every year and the last time we visited I made this creamy panna cotta, which is a wonderful way to enjoy some of the summer’s finest rhubarb.

Cauliflower and Broccoli Mac 'n' Cheese

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

At one of my recent cookery demonstrations I got a great tip to make an all-in-one white sauce, which simplifies the process here. There are two things that are key to this method: the milk must be cold when you start, and remember to keep whisking vigorously until the sauce thickens. If you want to take this simple recipe one step further, add some fried smoked streaky bacon bits. This is a great dish for a leftovers lunchbox the next day.
