    It's Friday. Why buy a new lunch when I can take the odds and ends of my fridge and recycle them into a platter of all my favourite things? Caramelised hummous, raw carrots, rocket and avocado drizzled with balsamic vinegar and some brie thrown in for good measure. Oh - and I did buy the baguette to top it off. Waste not, want not!

    This is really yummy and healthy, since I started making it we have it at least once a week! You could adapt it to suit you but in mine I start with some prepared couscous and add chopped red peppers, celery and a small amount of red onion, chopped mint and coriander, 1 pack of roasted artichokes & courgettes (from Waitrose) and a few capers. Dressing is finely chopped chilli a generous grating of lemon zest with a tablespoon of the juice mixed with some extra virgin olive oil. All you need then is some really good prawns to mix it all together and voila!

    Prawn, avocado and grapefruit salad: this salad is just a whole bunch of my favorite foods teamed together. Sweet red ruby grapefruit and buttery avocados go perfectly with the prawns and the best thing is it takes less than 15mins to make. Perfect!

    Lentilguine: I have come to the conclusion that my favourite part of cooking lunch is the spontaneous excitement of creating an absolutely earth-shattering dish from whatever I have in the fridge. Check how awesome my lunch looks today. I particularly went crazy over the way the lemon juice and sunflower sprouts added a fresh tang and zip to the toasted garlic.

    To-Binh Lam

    Spiced Red Snapper Hills crossed with polenta stacked on tomato fields. Perfectly grilled and seasoned polenta chips, crispy on the outside yet wonderfully creamy and soft in the inside. A beautiful compliment to the perfect seared red snapper creating another crisp coating into a very flaky-tender inside conveying freshness and even more so with a squeeze of lemon. The perfect lunch.

    Friday's lunch was leftover chicken skewers marinated in honey, soy and dijon mustard (well in actual fact I didn't have any dijon, so I used wholegrain mustard, and I didn't have any honey so I used a bottle of maple syrup my sister bought back from Vancouver)...Tasty.

    Salad of Oozy Boiled Duck Eggs, Smoked Salmon, Garden Peas and Basil. I was feeling like something healthy and tasty for my lunch, so whipped up this simple but delicious dish. I love eggs because they make a simple salad like this even more substantial and exciting. I like making dishes which are colourful and fun to look at too! Basil and Smoked Salmon make an unusual but delicious flavour combination.

    Getting our 'Goan Curry' on! Goan Fish curry (West Indian coconutty curry, we used Halibut and, in very unmeasurable quantities: chilli powder, tumeric, coriander, cumin, cinammon, mustard seeds and a whole lot of other stuff). Seasoned the rice with some more mustard seeds and served with some homemade chutney we found at the back of the fridge and cabbage spiced with yet more mustard seeds and also most of the spices used in the curry - tumeric, cumin, chilli, coriander etc. Was delicious!
