Lentil Kale Filo Pockets
This elegant dish can be served as a main course or appetizer to impress company! Make a big batch and freeze on a baking sheet overnight, and then transfer to freezer bags. They will last for about 6 months in the freezer. When you are having company, pop a couple out of the freezer and bake!

This is a really nice tart to serve for a lunch get together with a big salad or as something to munch on with a big bowl of soup! You can roast the tomatoes up to 1 week in advance and store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
Swiss Chard and Halloumi Frittata
This is a great meal for a light dinner, served with a side salad or roasted potatoes. It’s jam packed with greens and the halloumi adds a really nice salty contrast! I use a cast iron skillet here which makes a really nice presentation plus it is oven safe. If you don’t have one, just use a regular pan to sauté the veggies and then transfer into an oven safe baking dish and top with the eggs. Bake as directed.

I created this recipe for my dad, as it is his absolute favourite pizza whenever we go out!

For this recipe, I recommend getting a good quality block of parmesan cheese, not the pre-grated kind!
