Fluffy Potato Cakes 

These are pure, delicious comfort food - fluffy in the middle & crispy on the outside! We love them served with a big mixed salad or a chunky salsa.

 

Ingredients to make 4 - 5 potato cakes:

4 or 5 medium sized potatoes, peeled and diced

1/2 a sprout top or a wedge of a savoy cabbage, finely shredded

2 sprigs of thyme, stalks removed

Sea salt

Winter Root Stew

This is a rustic, hearty vegetable stew so keep the veggies big and chunky - they’ll soak up all the juices as they cook resulting in a delicious, comforting dish. 

 

Ingredients to serve 4 - 6 people:

2 white onions or shallots, halved and sliced

2 cloves of garlic, crushed

4 sticks of celery, thinly sliced

1 swede peeled and chopped into big chunks, about 1 inch pieces 

3 Simple Snacks To Stay Focused

Being prepared with nourishing bites to eat isn’t only a great way to stay focused when hunger strikes but the best way to make sure you don’t reach for the crisps, chocolate or even so called ‘healthy’ snacks which are just as full of fat and sugar.

Try these 3 plant powered super snacks to keep you energised - they all follow the same principles, a pile of crunchy fruit of veg with something tasty to dip them into on the side! Take them to work, add them to school lunch boxes or pop them in you bag to have on the go!

Give Your Oats Some Oomph!

When it comes to breakfast, just 5 minutes of prep the night before will set you up for a delicious and satisfying start to your day. Plain rolled oats are inexpensive and hugely nourishing… jazz them up with fruit and a sprinkle of nuts and you’ve got yourself a powerhouse breakfast to get you through the morning!

This is an all-in-one method to save you time but if you prefer, you can add the grated or chopped fruit in the morning or just before you tuck into your delicious oats.
