One-pot lamb and quinoa biryani

One-pot lamb and quinoa biryani.

Biryani doesn't need to be as complicated as it looks. Here's a simple one-pot version that's full of flavour. Success depends on getting the right amount of liquid to cook the rice.

Cheat's samosas (vegetable curry puffs)

Cheat's samosas.

Malaysia's popular curry puffs take inspiration from Indian origins, but I like to think of them as spices coming home to where they were first grown. Moderation is the key.

Chicken tagine with mango and apricot

Love Middle Eastern flavours? I always think the best way to start exploring a new cuisine is just to make things you like to eat.

Speedy salmon pitas with hummus.

Three-cheese ziti pasta bake

When the cold weather rolls in, there's nothing better than putting your oven to work: just put your dish in, close the door and let it do the work while you curl up on the couch.

Slow-roasted chicken with anchovy, lemon and capers

Slow-roasted chicken with anchovy, lemon and capers.

Your oven is the workhorse of your kitchen. Put it on and let it cook while you keep yourself busy with other things or just put your feet up and relax.

Pumpkin, spinach and roasted chickpea salad

Warm salads are some of my favourite dishes to make in the cooler months. Start by roasting ingredients in plenty of oil (more than you would normally use for roasting alone) and use the flavoured...

Bananas Foster with walnuts

Adam Liaw's banana foster recipe for Mother's Day.

While many recipes for this New Orleans dessert call for firm bananas, I think ripe ones are best as they soften into a lovely, sticky mess. Add walnuts at the end for texture.

Ocean trout (or salmon) with braised fennel and leek

Spaghetti with zucchini and spinach

Our parents told us to eat more greens. Our teachers told us, too. Nutritionists have been saying it for years. Heck, even Popeye got in on the act.

Sago, melon and coconut soup

I'm not much a fan of sweet soups – they always taste a bit like fruit juice or melted ice blocks to me. This is one shining exception.

Superior pork belly soup

Adam Liaw's favourite pork belly soup.

If you think of soup as just a warm-up to the main event, think again. A warm, hearty soup doesn't need to be full of cream or starchy vegetables.

Dutch baby (pancake) with bananas and berries

Ever out for breakfast and can't work out whether you want to be good and get the fruit salad, or cut loose with the pancakes? Well, the answer is stay home and have the best of both worlds.

Green shakshuka with hummus

Starting the day with a big breakfast doesn't have to mean oily sausages and bacon. When you have the time to sit down for a leisurely morning meal why not make it an occasion? This incredible hulk...

Tumeric fish skewers and garlic greens

My brother is a dietitian and I remember how he would come home every night while he was training and sing the praises of "fish and broccoli" as a nutritious meal. It's stuck with me all these years.

Rainbow salad

There's no need to have your tastebuds surgically removed to eat healthy food. "Eating the rainbow" is one of the simplest and most memorable pieces of nutritional advice you can follow.

Roast chicken and "very important" vegetables

This recipe is inspired by a lunch served to us by chef Claus Henriksen at Dragsholm Castle, near Copenhagen.
