  • Swap pizza dough for some cauliflower dough:

Grate or blitz raw (but thoroughly washes) cauliflower and mix one egg, grated cheese, salt and pepper. Spread it flat and top with your favourite toppings.You will definitely make another one.

  • Cheesy salad:

Throw in some rocket leaves, spinach, lettuce, shredded carrots, chopped cucumbers and add a dash of extra virgin olive oil in a bowl. Finally top it off with either crumbled feta cheese or goat’s cheese. Best side dish ever!

If you want to crank it up a notch try the Asian fried rice, Red pepper lentil bake or Chickpea and sweet potato curry for that good old Indian taste. Click here for recipes.
