Feta roasted with tomatoes, cannellini beans and figs is a simply beautiful autumn dish. I plonk the whole dish in the middle of the table then spread the soft, sweet and salty flavours onto warm bread and crackers.
Beans on toast gets the royal treatment with my ultimate recipe for jazzing up your tinned beans to make something singing with the flavours of the American BBQ scene.
Tinned beans are an easy and tasty way to get great protein and fibre into your diet. Butter Beans and Spinach is packed with fibre and iron too so it’s a power dish that tastes great.
Based on the tinned sausages and beans this version has less salt and sugar and is more substantial. The children love rolling the meatballs for this easy kid’s tea.
My love affair with crispy salmon skin continues with this simple and delicious dish. I find it restorative to eat in December to balance out the richer foods I inevitably eat. Broth, crispy skin and soft salmon…. what more could you want?
These salty and tender parcels are a beautiful side dish for special occasions. You can assemble them beforehand then roast them for 10 minutes when you’re ready.
It’s easy to make your own pumpkin pie in the UK since the large supermarkets started selling tinned pumpkin. This iconic North American dessert is beautifully spiced with a soft texture.

By telling Henry that I make these Dinosaur Egg Rolls with eggs I buy directly from Jurassic Park he is quite happy to chomp his way through a good chunk of spinach 😉
