Rustic Steak Sandwiches

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

I love steak sandwiches done right. Make sure you get bread which is crusty but with a nice dough interior, which means you can pick it up in your hands to eat - the only way steak sandwiches were ever meant to be eaten!

Chorizo, Rocket and Red Onion Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Chorizo is one of my favourite ingredients to use, it provides really delicious smoky flavours and, when fried, renders the most amazing red oil. One of the first few times I visited London, I got myself down to world-famous Borough market where you can pick up some of the best Spanish chorizo outside Spain. This salad is nicest if you can get your hands on some really good-quality chorizo – you will generally find the best stuff in Spanish specialty food shops.

Leftover Chicken Caesar Pasta

This is one of my ultimate quick-fix suppers, a really tasty and substantial dish that makes the most of leftover chicken. It also makes a good lunchbox filler.

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.

Smokey Fish Pie

The flavours in this pie are really comforting and there is something altogether homely about the dish. I love using smoked fish, but if you’re not a big fan just substitute with the regular stuff.

Moroccan Spiced Chicken

This is a brilliant combination of warming flavours and pure fresh spice. A lovely, quick way to make a meal a little different whilst keeping things really simple and light. Spiced chicken, zingy mayonnaise and crisp green salad, yum!

Ribollita

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Ribollita is an Italian soup that was traditionally seen as peasant food. The great thing about this soup is that it makes an ideal base for any additional ingredients that you might want to add. Think of it as an opportunity to give a last moment of glory to any miserable veggies left at the bottom of your fridge! I keep leftover Parmesan rinds in my freezer, which I add to sauces and soups like this to give a unique rich flavour. Add a couple while the soup is simmering and simply fish them out before serving.
