Healthy made easy
Feeding a family and quick food solutions go hand-in-hand. They are usually very short windows of time, during which there are a million errands to squeeze in, which means that last thing you want is a recipe which ties you to the cooker and kitchen sink for a long period of time. You want a healthy meal but you need the prep time to be minimal, and as for the washing up… well, the more we can do to avoid that, the better.
A comforting dish with attitude is what this dinner is all about. Tacos are a fantastic way to get the whole family around the dinner table. Spiced salmon, cucumber, shallots and chilli pickle, plus a lovely dollop of herby yoghurt, all wrapped in a corn tortilla — these speedy tacos are fun to assemble and even more fun to eat. Lovely and creamy from the yoghurt and almonds, with a smoky hit from the bacon, this is a real weeknight winner. With a filling of lentils, chickpeas, mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes, this vegan twist on the classic is rich and satisfying. Topped with sweet potato mash and zesty breadcrumbs for a delicious crunch, this is a great dish to pop in the middle of the table for the whole family to enjoy.
