I like cooking high-falluted stuff when I have the time, but in the week I just want something easy, nutritious and filling.

I want to avoid using pre-prepared ingredients.

So far I have:

Baked potato with cottage cheese and salad

Mashed potato with chick peas and veg on the side

Pasta with home-made tomato sauce and tuna

Scrambled eggs on toast

Spanish omelette

Looking for ideas to add to my list! I'm vegetarian.

My favourite easy veg dishes are daal and rice, spinach and potatoes, pasta bake, one pot veggie rice, kidney beans and chickpeas and pizza on wholemeal naan bread. As a working mum, I love to eat healthy but can't be slaving away in the kitchen for ages, life's too short! There's some great quick and healthy veggie recipes here:

Curry with peanut butter

I make it in various ways, but basically:

Fry onion, chilli and garlic, chuck in whatever vegetables/meat you want. And let them cook for a few minutes. Shove it over to the side of the pan. Put in some peanut butter and water (or coconut milk), soy sauce. Salt and pepper.

It is SO nice, and so simple.
