Nigella's Linguine with Lemon Garlic & Thyme Mushrooms (made-over)

I've added double the mushrooms and lemon juice/zest, a little extra olive oil (to balance the flavour) and use half the amount of pasta. I also save myself the time and purchase pre-sliced cremini mushrooms. The recipe still makes a huge amount.

Easy way to up the flavour without adding any fat.

Omelette cups

Great for breakfast

Tasty Black Rice

Black rice is a very long-cooking rice, so it's best to set it to soak in the vegetable broth the morning you are planning to cook it for dinner, or even the night before. If you pre-soak, it takes about 30 minutes to cook. From dry, it takes 50-60 minutes.

Mint & Chevre Omelette

Light yet filling. Perfect dinner for a warm summer evening. Add a salad or piece of good whole-grain bread if you are a big eater, but I find this plenty on it's own.

Brocolli Salad

A twist on the traditional brocolli salad made with a British favourite, Heinz Salad Cream, instead of mayo or Miracle Whip

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Yummy, lighter than usual chowder-like potato soup.

Mint Lemon Limeade

Made with just a little bit of sugar (to mascerate the mint with) and stevia powder, this is a healthier version of refreshing lemonaide for a hot summer day.

Garlcky Shrimp & Whole Wheat Pasta

Quick easy and delicious. Don't be fooled or turned away by the anchovy, it melts into the butter & oil and gives this dish a slightly salty/nutty backnote.

No Knead White Bread

Easiest ever white bread recipe!

No Knead Bread - Whole Wheat Flax

Easy, no knead bread recipe. Takes 5 minutes to stir together, 18 hours for 'starter' to rise, dump into a loaf pan, let rise for an hour and bake. So simple, but absolutely delicious!

Baked Rice

I have never served this and not been asked for the recipe. It's so simple but absolutely delicious. Can also be made with white rice but fibre, calories and cooking time will need to be adjusted.
