The combination of two super healthy ingredients with a punchy dressing is the perfect winter pick-me-up.
Cooler weather may be upon us, but this is where I love the comfort of desserts. Poached pears can also double up as a topping on cereals for breakfasts and to accompany creamy yoghurts and ice creams.
Roasted cheesy Brussels sprouts Serves 4
I always remember my mother's shortcake, with its light and airy pastry and juicy, tart filling. I added some rhubarb to this classic and it married together perfectly.
Roasted romescu with leeks
Cabbage is crisp, affordable and in season at the moment. I love that within minutes I can be sitting down to a fulfilling bowl of goodness.
Cauliflower pizza Serves 2-4 (makes 1 large or 2 small)
Rhubarb is abundant now, and if you are like me, you love its unique flavour but can never quite keep up with it. This jam recipe is great as the endless uses will impress you.
At the moment sweet orange bushfire pumpkins are available, one's that I love as you can eat the skin. However, any pumpkin or creamy squash will be delicious in this.
This dish fits nicely into the season, as main crop potatoes have arrived and home-grown tomatoes are good for cooking.
Raspberries are sun-sweet and juicy and they seem to float in this light and airy sponge cake.
This dish works well throughout the year. Simply change the sweet tomatoes for mushrooms, wilted greens or even alongside a hearty stew.
A simple marriage of summer flavours with cooling ricotta and tangy citrus makes this simple dessert one of my summer favourites.
This refreshing soup works wonderfully hot or chilled and the addition of pungent smashed basil takes the soup to another level.
This pastry is perfect as a dairy-free option. I have added bacon to give a bit more flavour but it's totally up to you.
Roasting asparagus adds a wonderful nutty flavour.
You need only three ingredients - potato, onion and egg - to make this delicious Spanish tortilla (omelette).
Fresh spring greens, with their peppery, crisp taste, go so well with creamy white beans and a pinch of chilli. This is great served simply as an appetiser or alongside a grilled pork chop or juicy fillet of fish.
Broccoli has been fantastic this winter: firm, crunchy and nutritious. This Japanese-inspired dressing adds a simple twist to make this magnificent vegetable even more desirable.
Two ingredients that remind me of Spain are quinces and almonds. This delightful cake fits perfectly with this time of the year and will please all.
