1. Vegan Sweetcorn and Courgette Fritters
A speedy pan fry is all you need with this waistline-watching and budget-friendly fritter by cookbook writer Miguel Barclay.
2. Creamy Wild Mushrooms With Herbed Potato Cakes
Creamy sauteed mushrooms with sumptuous potato cakes. With only a frying time of no more than 10 minutes, this is a perfect weekend meal for two.
3. Smoked Mackerel Caesar Salad
The recipe requires some baking, which - well, we're trying to avoid. Simply replace the croutons with some toasted bread that's just on the side of being too toasted. Before toasting them, drizzle a little olive oil on the bread. Grind together the rosemary leaves and a pinch salt, then rub it onto the bread.
4. Smoked Salmon Éclair
A savory and salty take on a popular dessert. No need for an oven, only some assembly required!
5. Homemade Frozen Yoghurt
Perfect for a post-workout snack! Creamy, cold, and sweet - it's like ice cream but without the guilt.
6. Gluten-Free Sorbet
And if the DIY frozen yoghurt isn't enough, try making your own delicious, icy sorbet treat with only ONE ingredient: FRUIT.
