Make this new twist on a traditional porridge to brighten a cold winter morning. Cranberries contain many valuable nutrients but they have a limited season so are usually available in frozen or dried form.
1 1/4 cups (80 g) quinoa flakes
2 cups (500 ml) low-fat milk
1/2 cup (60 g) frozen cranberries, thawed
2 teaspoons honey
1 tablespoon chopped pecans
Combine the quinoa flakes, milk and 1 cup (250 ml) water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and gently simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, until thick and creamy.
Meanwhile, combine the cranberries, honey and 2 tablespoons water in a blender, and blend until almost smooth. Gently warm in a small saucepan.
Divide the porridge among four serving bowls. Serve topped with the cranberry mixture, sprinkled with the pecans.
Here's a great new way to scramble eggs – cooked in a double saucepan or in a bowl over simmering water, without any butter, then mixed with crème fraîche for a creamy result. With strips of smoked salmon and fresh dill, this is the ultimate luxury brunch dish.
Flakes of smoked trout, cream cheese and fresh dill combine to make a well–flavoured filling for this light spinach roll. It is much simpler to make than it looks – just make sure that the spinach is squeezed really dry before adding to the sauce base.
The hollows in hard–boiled egg halves make perfect containers for a tasty filling – here carrot and chive – and the eggs look attractive served on a bed of ribbon vegetables and lamb's lettuce. All you need is some bread to make a satisfying lunch.
For these delectable chilli–flavoured omelettes, the eggs are whisked with cornflour to give them a slightly firmer texture, suitable for folding round a colourful and tasty filling of stir–fried vegetables and rice noodles.
