Tomato Beany Burgers
It is a good idea to try and reduce our family meat consumption a little during the week.
Opting for a plant based alternative not only has health benefits, but can also positively benefit the environment.

Do your children love a curry, but you don’t want to use a jar and instead teach them how to make a super easy, delicious curry from scratch? Well look no further!
It is a really good idea to get children used to lots of delicious flavours and smells from around the world and what better dish than a delicious, fresh and fragrant curry!
All in one cottage pie
The weather is getting colder and we all need some hearty, family favourite recipes to warm up our evenings.
The best thing about this cottage pie is that it`s ALL-IN-ONE!
You don’t need to remember to separate veggies for the side because it’s already mixed in! Sweet potato, carrots, sweetcorn and peas – super nutritious for those little ones!
Very veggie burritos

Ultimate 5-layer lasagne
The best thing about this recipe is that you can pack lots of different chopped up veggies into the mince mix – we have used 𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬, 𝐠𝐚𝐫𝐥𝐢𝐜, 𝐜𝐚𝐫𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐬, 𝐜𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐫𝐲, 𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐠𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐨𝐞𝐬; but use 𝘢𝘯𝘺 𝘷𝘦𝘨 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘧𝘳𝘪𝘥𝘨𝘦!
Bursting with 𝐧𝐮𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬 for your growing 𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐭𝐥𝐞 𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐬!
Lots of families probably do 2 layers of lasagne – but why not try 𝟓 𝐥𝐚𝐲𝐞𝐫𝐬 this time, and save the cheese sauce for the top. This allows the lasagne to cut like a 𝐜𝐚𝐤𝐞 – 𝐤𝐢𝐝𝐬 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐩𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐮𝐢𝐥𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬!
Mix n match tomato pasta with garlic flatbread
This is a super easy, plant-based, very likeable dish that gives you and the kids the freedom to customise to your liking – 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐤𝐢𝐝𝐬 the 𝐟𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐝𝐨𝐦 𝐭𝐨 𝐜𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐥𝐢𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠.
Why not get the family to expand their vegetable choices, and start introducing some new colours and types that are in season?
The challenge is to try and pick 3 different coloured vegetables to add to this pasta dish.
