Why you can trust • BBC Good Food is the UK’s No 1 food lifestyle media brand. We are passionate about food and cooking. While recipes are at the heart of what we do, we are committed to helping you have the best food experience you can, whether you’re shopping for food, in your kitchen or eating out in the UK or abroad. This is what we promise:
Fast & fresh • Rustle up these quick recipes to save time and money – they can be made in 30 minutes or fewer, but are still special enough to serve guests
Green shakshuka with harissa & crispy shallots • It’s so simple to throw together this comforting one-pan winner for brunch or supper. You can also adapt it with any veg or herbs you have in the back of the fridge, or sprinkle in extra chilli if you like more heat. The secret ingredient here is the preserved lemon, which adds citrussy freshness. If you can’t get hold of it, you can simply use extra lemon zest.
Bombay potato fishcakes • Try a fun twist on standard fishcakes by adding spices that are reminiscent of Bombay potatoes. Crushed poppadums are also an inventive substitute for breadcrumbs, but you can stick to the traditional coating if you prefer. You may want to use up some day-old bread and make your own breadcrumbs by blitzing the slices in a food processor.
Quick mushroom noodle soup • Easy, quick and delicious, this soup is properly comforting, fast food. It’s always good to have noodles in your storecupboard, so you’re always able to rustle up a meal in minutes.
Creamy baked gnocchi with squash & spinach • This oozy gnocchi dish looks and tastes like a lot of love and time has gone into it, so guests will never know you made it in just 30 minutes with the help of a microwave. If you have more time, the squash can be roasted for more flavour.
Banoffee flapjack crumble • Baked bananas become meltingly soft and take on a fruity sweetness. The oats in the topping create a texture reminiscent of flapjack – a handful of chopped pecans would be a lovely addition, too, if you have them. If you’re a stickler for tradition, serve this with custard, but ice cream or cold single cream would be equally delicious.
