Just five ingredients are needed to knock up Jamie’s wonderfully vibrant and tasty dish, which makes the most of gorgeous winter greens. An easy, healthy meal idea that you’ll come back to time and again 

Brighten up those dark winter evenings with this beauty of a dish. A perfectly poached egg sits on top of flavour-packed grains and finished with pomegranate yoghurt. A super quick, super delicious dinner!

Traybakes are the king of easy, healthy meal ideas, because once you’ve done the prep, the oven does all the hard work. With oily fish, lots of lovely veg and a zingy dressing, it’s the dish that keeps on giving. 

The beauty of a sweet potato is they count towards your 5-a-day (unlike their white cousins) and add a gentle sweetness that goes so well with big flavours. Here, it’s baked and paired with a fresh, zingy salad and toasted seeds, but you can top it with whatever you fancy.

Colourful, exciting and full of flavour, this is an epic San Fran-inspired salad that’s super-quick to throw together. Try it once and it will be your favourite easy, healthy meal!

This recipe is sure to go down a storm with the whole family – who wouldn’t love fun green pancakes?! Filled with a dressed avocado and tomato salad, cottage cheese and a few shakes of hot sauce (if you like), it’s a taste sensation. 

This supper is proper soul food. Light and nutritious. Simply prep your veg and throw it into a pan of miso to let the flavours mix together in one joyful celebration before serving.

A veggie alternative to the classic roast meat centrepiece, the magic of this dish all happens while it ticks away in the oven, and the spiced marinade transforms the humble cauli into something outrageously tasty.

Let your tender white fish steam in the rice as it cooks for the last 10 minutes and you’ll get perfectly flaky results. Combine with tomatoes and fresh basil leaves and you’re onto a weeknight winner.

This frittata is one satisfying dish. Blackening the chillies reduces the heat and releases their sweetness to give a beautiful flavour that goes so well with goat’s cheese. Serve with a simple salad.
