Healthy dinner ideas for one

1. Sweet & sour tofu

Healthy, vegan and packing in three of your 5-a-day, our sweet & sour tofu has it all. Throw together veggies, golden-brown crisp tofu pieces, sweet pineapple and a simple sauce for a wholesome meal in just 25 minutes. For extra crispy tofu pieces, try coating in cornflour before frying.

2. Punchy spaghetti

Believe it or not, a plateful of spaghetti can be a healthy, budget-friendly dinner. Whip up this punchy spaghetti with a mixture of courgette, tomatoes and anchovies. The light, lemon and pepper flavour brings just the right amount of warmth without overpowering the delicate veg. Using a little of the pasta water creates a smooth sauce and helps it coat and stick to the pasta. Grab a fork and dive in.
