Sometimes inspiration for dinners midweek can be lack lustre and we often resort to making the same old tried and tested spag bol.We have a couple of wonderful little recipes that are easy to throw together and relatively healthy – although we sometimes compromised the health part for absolute deliciousness.

Scrummy Yummy Easy Peasy Root Bake


6 large baking potatoes

4 sweet potatoes

A couple of carrots

Semi-dried tomatoes

Thickened cream

French onion soup powder

Grated tasty cheese

How to prepare

  • Slice the potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots and semi dried tomatoes and start to layer in a baking tray.
  • The beauty of this dish is that you can be really rough and messy with your layering.
  • Dependant on what you prefer you can put more or less of any of the ingredients. We find the the sweet potato works wonderfully.
  • After each layer, sprinkle the french onion soup generously and top with a splodge of thickened cream. Continue until you run out of ingredients or baking tray space!
  • Finish with a sprinkle of cheese over the top of the dish and put into a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees for 45 minutes.
  • Grab a fork , a bowl and help yourself to the yumminess.

Zucchini Noodles with Basil Pesto and Cherry Tomatoes
