Tenderstem, carrots and paneer are tossed in mustard seeds, turmeric and lemon juice and served with soft, fluffy poodla (spicy chickpea flour pancakes). Pink Lady® apple Raita and a green salad make great accompaniments. Sambhal is a traditional Gujarati dish and the light spicing means children can enjoy new flavours and help out with some of the preparation.

This recipe is flavoursome and Italian at heart. It combines the flaky texture of cod with the fresh bite of Tenderstem. The delicate flavour of these two main ingredients is enhanced by crisp pancetta and the fresh, aromatic herbs. Great for a family meal and quick-to-prepare for a dinner party.

Kopytka, meaning “little hooves”, are small Polish potato dumplings, similar to Italian gnocchi. They make a good alternative to pasta and since they are small and bite-sized, they make a great supper for kids. You can also make kopytka with leftover mashed potato. Adding a little Tenderstem to the dough gives the dumplings a colourful twist and added texture.

A type of South American stir-fry, it is usually served with fries, combined with the beef at the last minute. Some people love to put potatoes at the bottom of the plate and cover them with the saucy beef and a side of fluffy, garlicky white rice. This recipe uses roasted sweet potatoes and brown rice for a healthier version.
