Bread, cheese and onion bake

Most of my friends will tell you that I love cheese. A ploughman's lunch done right is a wonderful thing. But sometimes, you want something hot. Something a bit more crafted. Think of this as a cooked version of a ploughman's lunch. Or a savoury bread-and-butter pudding, if you prefer.

Kale and mushroom hash

Healthy, easy, filling, and warming - this is a great weeknight supper for January. I really like it for brunch at the weekend too, either made from scratch, or I deliberately make enough for leftovers when I'm cooking it in the evening.

Kale seems to have aquired a "trendy" reputation, but it's a great, inexpensive vegetable, packed with nutrients and in season at this time of year. But you could use spinach or chard if you prefer. A runny-yolked egg finishes the dish off perfectly.

Creamy cauliflower and leek bake

I don't know about you, but I'd be quite happy if I never saw another mince pie. After all the indulgence of the festive season I feel it's time to load up on veggies. This dish couldn't be more full of vegetables, but is still warm and comforting, topped with a crispy, cheesy (but not too cheesy) crust.
