I love meals where I can have a 'bit of everything' on one plate, creating a kind of mini buffet salad plate with different flavours, colours and textures.

In January I still want the comfort and to feel full, but with a bit of health and a lot of veg thrown in. It’s a great way to recover from the over-indulging, and I always feel better when I eat better. I don’t know if that’s psychological or not, but it’s true!
There are lots of different recipes to choose from, but these are 3 of my staples which I fall back on time after time. They all pack a huge veggie punch, and don’t feel like diet food either! I’ve included a stir-fry, soup and curry recipe. The stir-fry is quick and easy to cook, perfect for staving off any Chinese takeaway cravings. The carrot soup is warming, and ideal to cook in a batch so there’s some for lunch the next day (or the whole week!) too, and a veggie curry which is one of my favourite Friday or Saturday night treats, and much healthier than ordering in.
This is a quick and simple dish, perfect when you’re in a hurry. Enjoy with grated Parmesan and freshly ground black pepper. Cooking time 20 minutes (trust me, it can be done!)
