Local Lee Rushforth has been working on ideas to make those meal vouchers or limited shopping trips work well to feed our families with healthy and interesting meals!

Lee has been a Head Chef for over 10 years and he reached the quarter finals of Masterchef the Professionals !

Now's the time to get that pinny on and dig out the pots and pans!

You can download Lee's ideas for meal voucher recipes here:

Here are a few highlights:

Main meal ideas:

Lamb mince tagine – so lamb mince can be a bit expensive so try this recipe iv come up with the make it go a bit further, plus its awesome too!
Cut a butternut squash in half lengthways (carefully). Scoop out the seeds, brush oil over it and add a little salt and ground cumin. Place in the oven and roast at 180 until cooked and soft and squishy. Then place to one side.
Sweat off your lamb mince, onion, garlic, ginger, salt, and add some spices of your choice, I like ground cumin, ras el hanout and nigella seeds. When cooked scoop out the cooked squash from its skin and mix in with the lamb mince and keep heating on a low heat, check the seasoning again.
I then add the mince mixture back into the squash skin but you don’t have to, I serve this with cous cous, pomegranate seeds and a scoop of plain yoghurt over the top.
What I like about this is the spices aren’t ‘spicy’ and are a good starting point for kids and flavours from around the world.

Baked fish with veg, tomatoes and yoghurt potatoes – so throw some new potatoes in the oven at 180 degrees, with a little oil, salt and garlic and after 15mins add some tender stem broccoli and continue to cook until the potatoes and broccoli are almost done, maybe another 5-10mins. Then in the same tray put the fish (salmon is always popular with most), and continue to cook for 5mins then add some tomatoes and cook for a further 5-8mins until the fish is cooked.
When cooked, remove the fish and tomatoes from the roasting tray, and toss the potatoes and veg in some yoghurt.

More recipes and useful advice are on the sheet (link, above).

There are some fantastic ideas for healthy and cheap breakfasts too. 
All good for getting energy into the kids for a day of home schooling!
