Here's how to make soothing seasonal recipes that won't leave you hot and bothered
When it comes to hotter weather fodder we all lose our imaginations a bit. It can sometimes feel like you've eaten salad every night of the week – and after a hard day's graft that's just not going to cut it.
Here's how to get that warm fuzzy, full feeling from the lightest summer ingredients.
For a light fish supper with a saucy twist take inspiration from those who cook while the sun beats down: our Mediterranean friends.
Another one giving salad a load more street cred is this spicy number. Even better, this North African inspired lamb with cous cous will be on your table in under 20 mins. Yum.
Pasta needn't be heavy with some summery ingredients thrown in to the mix. This recipe includes tinned salmon and frozen peas for a super-quick but really fresh-tasting bite to eat.
Creamy and comforting, this risotto packs a bite with the best of the season's asparagus. This one will also make you a winner among the veggie community who will gladly be lifted out of their spinach and ricotta rut.
You can throw pretty much whatever you like into a hash - but we love this flavoursome combo of chorizo, halloumi and fiery harissa in this recipe.
