With meat-free meals like this, you’re sure to tempt even the most devout carnivore. And there’s not a piece of tofu in sight. Promise.
With a tang of goat’s cheese and soft nuttiness of sweet potatoes, you can trust Yotam Ottolenghi's sweet potato galettes to jazz up meat-free meals.
If you’re going to treat your dinner party like the MasterChef final and want to cook two dishes, how about Ghillie James's stuffed mushrooms: creamy, filling, and equally good served with steak or lamb.
Lindy Redding's buttery shortbread stars topped with mozzarella and roasted tomatoes are almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
A 30-minute meal to impress (yes, you read that right), Sarah Randell's rich mushroom and crispy sage pappardelle is simple to make and oh-so-luxurious.
Oozing goat’s cheese, sweet tomato slices and flaky, buttery pastry. Need we say more about this tremendous tart from Lucy Jessop?
If you really want to impress your guests, it’s time to lose your fear of the soufflé (don’t worry, Raymond Blanc will hold your hand). Andrew Dargue's recipe uses red cabbage marmalade to add a good kick of fruity sweetness.
Everyone needs a foolproof risotto recipe in their repertoire and Lucy Jessop's has the added bonus of pearl barley and ricotta.
