Kidney Bean Curry

This curry is bursting with flavour. It’s a powerful immune system strengthener with garlic, ginger, turmeric and vitamin C from capsicum and tomatoes. If you have the time and prefer fresh-cooked food, you can cook up your own kidney beans and use extra fresh tomatoes in place of canned. I top mine with lots and lots of coriander for maximum flavour!

Minestrone Soup

This is one of my favourite, classic meals to make in winter: An easy, one-pot dish that is delicious, warming and full of goodness. It’s pretty much a nutrition all-rounder, containing veggies, grains and legumes, as well as some very nourishing herbs and spices. It’s full of antioxidants, fibre, iron and calcium. I make a big batch of it and save the leftovers for lunches and dinners on work nights. If you’re extra organised when it comes to meal prep, you could even freeze batches (if you remember to use them later on, that is – usually I don’t!). Make it the day before to let the flavours meld and develop further – it tastes even better.
