Purple Sprouting Broccoli, Mozzarella & Tomato Bake

Heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the leek and cook gently for 8 mins to soften. Steam or boil the broccoli for 2 mins. Drain and refresh in a bowl of cold water. Drain again. Preheat the oven to 190°C. Toss the broccoli in a shallow baking dish with the leeks, tomatoes, mozzarella, garlic and herbs. Season with salt and pepper. Scatter over the breadcrumbs.

Pan-Fried Pollack with Warm Potato, Kale & Dill Salad

Main courseServes 4

Boil the potatoes in a pan of salted boiling water for 8-10 mins, until tender. Meanwhile, make the dressing: whisk the mustard, honey, vinegar and oil in a large bowl. Drain the potatoes and add them to the dressing while still warm. Add the raw kale, season and stir. Sprinkle the flour over the fish skin and season. Heat a little oil in a heavy-based non-stick frying pan. Add the fish, skin side down and leave to cook on a medium heat for approx 3-4 mins for a 2-3cm thick fillet. Turn it over - the skin should be crispy - if not, give it another min on that side. Turn and cook for about a min or so on the other side to just cook it through. Stir the dill into the potato salad, then serve the fish with the potato salad and lemon wedges.

Moroccan Spiced Lamb with Beetroot

Main courseServes N/K

Preheat the oven to 190°C. Wrap the beetroot in foil and place in a baking dish. Bake until tender (small ones will take 30-40 mins; larger up to 2 hours - test with a knife). Remove from the oven and leave until cool enough to handle, then rub off the skins. Roughly chop, then blitz in a food processor with the yoghurt, seasoning to taste. Mix the oil, lemon zest and juice, garlic and spices in a bowl. Add the lamb and toss together. If you have time, marinate in the fridge for an hour or two. Put the couscous in a large bowl and add just enough boiling water to cover. Pop in the butter, stir and leave to absorb for about 10 mins. Fluff it up with a fork. Add the lemon zest, juice, herbs and stir. Heat a griddle pan until very hot. Cook the lamb on both sides for 3-4 mins, depending on thickness. Rest the meat for 5 mins, then serve with the couscous and a dollop of beetroot purée (warm it in a pan if you like).

Nadia Sawalha’s Breakfast Scones

BreakfastServes 10

Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 10-15 minutes Preheat the oven to 220ºC, gas mark 7. Grease a baking tray. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the mushrooms for 4-5 minutes until golden. Grill the bacon whole and chop the bacon into small pieces, roughly 1cm. Mix the flours and baking powder in a large bowl and rub in the butter until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the bacon mixture and half the cheese. Mix in the milk to form a soft dough. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to 2cm thick and using a 6cm round cutter, cut out 10 scones and place on the tray. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese. Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden. Perfect for eating on the go, wrapped in a napkin. The scones will keep for 2-3 days in an airtight container. The scones can also be frozen (best to freeze once cooled, on the day they have been baked) so you have a ready supply for busy weeks. Hints and tips Serve spread with low fat cream cheese, sliced tomatoes or ham for a more substantial breakfast on the go. For a vegetarian option replace the bacon with finely chopped spring onion or chives.
