There’s nothing more warming than a roasted butternut squash… and throwing them in the oven with a bit of grated nutmeg really brings out their yummy, sweet flavour. I love them on their own with a roast, but I also cooked extra to turn them into this new yummy speedy roasted squash and chickpea curry. Great for batch cooking and warming winter lunches.

Horribly Healthy Spiced Pumpkin Soup
This recipe is so super simple… utilising the season’s pumpkin bounty and ensuring no part is left wasted! Enjoy my horribly healthy curried soup recipe below.
Spicy Chai Banana Smoothie:
This is the perfect autumn smoothie – and using these herbs adds loads of flavour, without the need for lots of sweet fruit. You could leave out the banana and nut butter, and use the rest of the ingredients to make a great bedtime drink!
No bake apple crumble:
This is the perfect topping to go onto any type of stewed fruit – and best of all it doesn’t even need to go into the oven. You can eat it raw – even better just 5 mins in a pan to gently toast it. (It’s easy to stew apples or pears – just peel them, take out the core, chop into small pieces – for around 6 apples, you’ll need about a teaspoon of cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg/all spice. Plus half cup of water – mix all together in a pan, cover with a lid or piece of grease proof paper, put on low heat for 12 to 15 mins until fruit is soft, and when you stir it breaks down into a mush. You can freeze in small portions or keep in fridge).
Chunky Tomato Soup:
Tomato soup can be very high in sugar. This recipe has absolutely no sugar (except the natural sugars in the vegetables), and uses 3 different types of tomatoes – tinned, fresh and purée – to help ensure you’re getting plenty of the antioxidant, lycopene. If you like your soup more creamy, just add a bit of milk or drizzle over some yogurt when you serve.
This is one of my favourite salmon recipes. I love salmon… but my kids still often moan when I put fish on the table (unless it’s coated in some kind of crumb). So I developed this Asian baked sesame salmon recipe to see if I could tempt them a bit more with this amazing oily fish. If you get the right kind of salmon (wild if possible), it’s generally a great source of omega 3 fatty acids, which are so important for our brains, our heart health and for us mamas, our hormonal balance. I aim to get my kids to eat oily fish twice per week… and this is the perfect recipe that the whole family will enjoy. Sweet, just a bit spicy and as my kids say, not too fishy!
