Large handful tarragon
Large handful flat-leaf parsley
Smaller handful mint

4 tsp capers
2 good tsp Dijon mustard
Lots of black pepper
Blitz everything in a food processor & slather on fish, meat, tofu or vegetables. Guaranteed to liven up any weeknight meal! You can interchange the herbs with anything you have to hand. This is a great way to use up leftover herbs which, fascinating fact 104, are some of the most nutrient dense foods we can consume. Get chopping!

400g tin of tomatoes
2 tablespoons tomato paste

TEMPTING TAHINI MARINADE
4 garlic cloves, peeled
2 tbsp cumin seeds, lightly toasted
2 tsp paprika
zest & juice of 1 lemon
3 tbsp olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
Crush the garlic with a pinch of salt in a pestle & mortar. Add cumin seeds & pound them to a coarse powder. The smell will be incredible. Place remaining ingredients in a small bowl & add garlic & cumin. Mix, adding a little water if necessary, until you get a smooth consistency.
Slather this over tofu, chicken, fish, vegetables and either bake or fry. Delicious!

3 heaped tbsp smooth peanut butter
1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
1/2 tsp chilli flakes
1 tbsp fish sauce
200ml coconut milk (half a tin)
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp ground coriander
Juice of a lime
Place all ingredients except for the lime into a small pan & heat over a medium heat, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon. Initially sauce will appear thin however, persevere & it will soon thicken up. Do not let boil.
Remove from heat & add lime juice.
This is a fantastic sauce for bbq meats & veg. It goes with anything & can be eaten hot or cold. Soooo good!
