Quick comfort: Sausage with polenta and mozzarella.
Quick comfort: Sausage with polenta and mozzarella.

Start the week with a flavour hit; a spicy stir-fry with plenty of nutty protein. On Tuesday night, turn pork sausages into meatballs and serve them up with creamy polenta. This Jill Dupleix recipe includes a vegetarian option too.

A simple mid-week curry is a great way to incorporate more fish into your diet.

On the weekend head to a farmer's market and stock up on wintery greens; silverbeeet and spinach. You'll need lots for Karen Martini's delightful dip; whip up a batch for a pre-dinner snack (it's great for work lunches in the week). The extra greenery will come in handy as you wind up your week with a healthy family-sized, vegetarian pie.
