4 tablespoons butter

500g frozen peas

Small bunch mint leaves

300g hot smoked salmon, flaked

Kale 'Caesar' Salad


Raw kale was a bit of a 'thing' in the 2010's, it provides high levels of vitamin K, plant source of calcium and is delicious with 'funky' cheese and bacon.


Serves 2

Takes 15 minutes


6 slices smoked streaky bacon, diced

160g kale, fresh, stalks removed, sliced

Juice of 1/2 a lemon

6 tablespoons of high quality mayonnaise

60g parmesan grated plus 30g, freshly shaved

2 eggs


Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and boil a kettle, add it's contents to a sauce pan and add the eggs for 6-8 minutes whilst you add the bacon to the cold pan and cook until crisp in its own fat.


Meanwhile, toss sliced kale with the juice of half a lemon and set aside. Drain and shell the eggs, set aside.


When the bacon is done, add the bacon, mayonnaise and parmesan to the bowl of kale. Mix well and season as appropriate. Top each with a boiled egg and fresh parmesan.

Spiced Eggs


Eggs are an amazing multinutrient rich source of protein and fats that cook quickly at very low cost.


Serves 2

Takes 15 minutes


500ml passata

2 tsp coriander

1 tbsp olive oil

80g baby spinach

4 eggs

120g hard goat's cheese


Add the olive oil to a saucepan (with a lid) over high heat, add the passata with the coriander and bring to a simmer and reduce the heat to low.


Add the spinach and stir, bring back to a simmer then make four 'holes' in each quarter of the pan. Crack an egg into each.


Cover the pan with a lid and simmer for 4 minutes until the egg whites are set but the yolks still runny. To serve, crumble the cheese and sprinkle over the pan. Divide between plates.
