Breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes: Fruit and yoghurt breakfast mix, Cheese burger salad, and Curried beans and mash

We’re back with some more mealtime inspiration! Our ‘Breakfast, lunch and dinner’ food series is all about good food, quick food and using whatever you have in the cupboard. Don’t be afraid to substitute one ingredient for another if you don’t have everything asked for in a recipe – experimenting is how great discoveries are made.

 

Breakfast

Fruit and yoghurt breakfast mix

Makes one serving

1 apple, chopped and deseeded

1 banana, peeled and chopped

50g dried fruit and seed or nut mix

100g natural yoghurt

A sprinkling of cinnamon and ground ginger to finish

Add the chopped apple, banana, dried fruit and seed mix and yoghurt to a bowl and combine. Finish with a sprinkling of cinnamon and ground ginger. Can be made in a lidded lunchbox and popped in the fridge the night before for a grab and go breakfast.

 

Lunch

Cheese burger salad

Makes four servings

4 burgers

1 iceberg lettuce, quartered

4 big tomatoes, chopped

½ onion, diced

A drizzle of Light mayonnaise

A sprinkling of grated cheese

Grill the burgers for around six minutes on each side. Then remove them from the grill and leave to one side to cool. Meanwhile, make the salads up into four lidded lunchboxes by dividing up the vegetables. Drizzle over a little light mayonnaise. Roughly chop the

burgers and divide between the boxes. Finish with a sprinkling of cheese.

 

Dinner

Curried beans and mash

Makes four to five servings

900g potatoes, peeled and chopped

1 tsp olive oil

1 onion, diced

½ broccoli head, diced

325g tin of sweetcorn

2 420g tin of baked beans

1 tsp curry powder, to taste

A sprinkling of grated cheese

Add the chopped potatoes to a saucepan, cover with water and boil for 10 to 20 minutes (depending on their size) until the tip of a knife easily passes through a chunk of potato. Check regularly so they don’t overcook. Meanwhile, fry the onion in another saucepan with the oil until golden in colour, then add the diced broccoli and sweetcorn (and its water) and

cook for a few minutes until the broccoli begins to soften. Once the potatoes are cooked, drain them, put them in a large bowl and either mash them or whisk them with an electric hand whisker until smooth. Put the mash to one side. Next, add the beans to the cooking vegetables and add the curry powder a little at a time, mixing and tasting until you are happy with the flavour. Once heated through, divide the bean mixture and mash between four bowls, and finish with a scattering of grated cheese.

 

Snack

Yoghurt berry bites

1 handful of chopped mixed berries

500g Greek yoghurt

Drop the chopped mixed berries into a silicone ice cube tray (or mini cupcake cases), cover with Greek yoghurt and freeze. Enjoy straight from the freezer in 3-4 hours’ time. Don’t let these defrost as they will
