Recipe 1 – Spicy Chicken and Bean Stew

A hearty and low-in-fat option for those seeking something truly flavourful, this scrumptious recipe is designed to serve 6.

1.  Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the diced braising steak and cook over a high heat until brown. Remove the steak with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add in the onion and carrots and cook for approximately 3 minutes or until they begin to brown. Stir in the flour and cook for approximately 1-2 minutes.

2. Return the meat and resting juices back to the pan. Add in the thyme, wine, and beef stock. Bring to a simmer then cover and cook on a gentle heat for approximately 1 hour or until the meat is tender. Add the halved mushrooms and cook for a further 5 minutes.

3. Preheat the oven to 200C (Gas Mark 6). Spoon the cooked filling into a roughly 30x22cm roasting pan. Brush around the rim of the dish with water then gently lay the puff pastry over the top. Neatly trim away any overhanging pastry and press down firmly to ensure a tight seal. Use a small and sharp knife to lightly score the surface of the pastry in a cross-hatched pattern. Brush with a splash of milk and then bake for approximately 25-30 minutes or until risen and golden.

  • 85g dried red lentils

  • 2 carrots, quartered then diced

  • 3 celery sticks, sliced

  • 2 small leeks, sliced

  • 2 tbsp tomato puree

  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves

  • 3 large garlic cloves, chopped

Great too for tucking into whilst at work or even whilst on the go, this delicious homemade soup is jampacked with an array of immunity supporting vitamins that are sure to help you tackle the colder weather head-on. This desirable recipe serves 2.


1. Add the dried lentils, diced carrots, celery sticks, and leeks into a large pan with the tomato puree. Add in the thyme leaves, chopped garlic cloves, vegetable bouillon powder, and ground coriander.

2. Pour in 1.5 litres of boiling water and stir well.

3. Cover the pan and leave to gently simmer for approximately 30 minutes or until the vegetable and lentils are tender.
