BEETROOT, SPINACH AND GOATS CHEESE GALETTE

All the things about this tart make me very happy. Earthy, sweet beetroot, bright green spinach, the pretty beetroot greens and the creamy goats cheese.

The result is a nutty, sweet and salty tart that I love for lunch or dinner.

HEALTHY LUNCHES, ZERO PREP

These lunches are aimed at people who have a work kitchenette and actually get a lunch break – but have limited time for lunch prep outside of work. Or, like me, maybe some days you’re just not that organised and need something you can throw together at the start of lunch that’s more nutritious than two minute noodles (and isn’t a tuna salad).

Good chat.
