Breakfast – Scrambled Eggs on Mega Mushrooms

 

Ingredients

2 red peppers, deseeded and sliced

4 very large mushrooms, stalks removed

6 eggs

4 tbsp skimmed milk

2 tsp lower-fat spread

12 cherry tomatoes, halved

4 wholemeal pittas

Freshly ground black pepper

Method

Preheat the grill. Arrange the sliced peppers and mushroom caps on the grill rack and grill them for 4 to 5 minutes, turning once. Beat the eggs and milk together. Chop the mushroom stalks.

Melt the lower-fat spread in a non-stick saucepan and add the eggs and mushroom stalks, stirring with a wooden spoon to set and scramble the eggs. Add the grilled peppers and cherry tomatoes, and cook for a few more seconds.

Meanwhile, warm the pitta bread in a toaster or under the grill. Warm 4 serving plates and place a mushroom on each one. Share the scrambled egg mixture between them and season with black pepper. Serve with the warm pittas.

Lunch – Mac n Veg Slices

 

Ingredients

100g macaroni

1 tsp vegetable oil

1 pepper, any colour, deseeded and chopped

1 small courgette, grated

100g frozen peas (or sweetcorn)

4 eggs

2 tbsp semi-skimmed or 1% fat milk

50g grated reduced-fat cheddar

2 tsp dried mixed herbs

1 pinch ground black pepper

Salad, to serve

Method

Cook the macaroni in boiling water for 10 to 12 minutes, until just tender. Rinse with cold water to cool it quickly, then drain thoroughly.

You could use cooked potatoes instead of pasta. You'll need about 225g, chopped into chunks.

Heat the vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan and stir-fry the pepper for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the courgette and frozen peas or sweetcorn. Add the macaroni and mix well.

Beat the eggs and milk together, then stir in the reduced-fat cheese and dried herbs. Season with black pepper. Pour into the frying pan and cook over a low heat for 4 to 5 minutes, without stirring, to set the base. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to medium-high.

 

Put the frying pan under the grill and cook for 4 to 5 minutes until the surface has set and is golden brown. Serve hot, warm, or cold, cut into wedges – with some salad on the side.

Dinner – Home Style Fish n Chips

 

Ingredients

4 potatoes, scrubbed, each cut into 8 wedges

1 tbsp vegetable oil

75g dried white or wholemeal breadcrumbs

1 egg, beaten with 2 tbsp cold water

4 fillets skinless white fish, like haddock, cod or pollock

Swappable or optional

300g mushy peas

1 pinch ground black pepper (optional)

Swap tip

You can use any frozen, fresh or canned peas if you don't have mushy ones.

Method

Preheat the oven to 200C/fan oven 180C/gas mark 6. Lightly grease a baking sheet with a little vegetable oil.

Put the potato wedges into a roasting tin. Add the remaining vegetable oil and toss to coat. Season with black pepper. Transfer to the oven to bake for 35 to 40 minutes, turning them over after 20 minutes.

Not peeling the potatoes means you get more fibre in your diet - and they're quicker to prepare.

Meanwhile, sprinkle the breadcrumbs onto a large plate. Season with a little pepper. Dip each fish fillet in the beaten egg, then coat in the breadcrumbs. Place on the baking sheet, then transfer to the oven when you turn the potatoes, so that it cooks for 15 to 20 minutes. To check that the fish is cooked, it should flake easily when tested with a fork.

Look out for dried breadcrumbs flavoured with lemon or spices to add extra flavour to the fish, or add some finely grated lemon zest or a pinch of paprika to plain dried breadcrumbs.

 

Heat the mushy peas in a saucepan, then serve with the fish and chips.
