Sustainable recipes

Trying to cook planet-friendly meals but not sure where to start? We’re here to help. Little changes can make a big difference. Below you’ll find some of our most sustainable recipes in one handy place, as well tips and ideas in our section on how to make more sustainable food choices.

Eat in harmony with nature, using seasonal fruit and veg recipes for all times of year. You’ll also find recipes using late-summer gluts: transforming berries, beans and more into jams and preserves. There’s plenty of ideas for tackling food waste and leftovers, be it chicken noodle soup, veg-peel fritters or a delicious quiche using wilted leaves and leftover mash.
