Harper Collins

1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
Juice of 2 lemons
100g (31/2oz) kale, finely shredded
100g (31/2oz) Brussels sprouts, finely shredded
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 a 400g (14oz) packet of pre-cut butternut squash
300g (10oz) soured cream
1/2 bunch each of fresh chives, fresh parsley, fresh dill
1 garlic clove
250g (9oz) grain pouch of your choice
1 apple, cored and diced 30g (1oz) pecans, roughly chopped
30g (1oz) dried cranberries salt and freshly ground black pepper

Add the onion to a small bowl with the juice of half a lemon and a big pinch of salt. Scrunch the slices in your hands to coat them in the juice, then set aside to lightly pickle.

Toss the shredded kale and Brussels sprouts with the juice of 1 lemon, the oil and plenty of salt and pepper. Massage with your hands for 1 minute to tenderize the leaves, then set aside.

Put the butternut squash into a microwave-safe bowl, cover with cling film and microwave on high for 5 minutes oruntil tender.

In the meantime, add the remaining lemon juice to a blender with the soured cream, chives, parsley, dill and garlic. Blitz until smooth and season to taste.

To assemble the salad, divide the grain pouch among two bowls and top with the steamed butternut squash, a large handful of the shredded greens, the apple chunks, chopped pecans and dried cranberries. Drizzle with the dressing and enjoy.

Harper Collins

1 tbsp olive oil
500g (1lb 2oz) beef mince
2 tbsp fajita seasoning
1 red pepper, deseeded and thinly sliced
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1 tomato, finely chopped
1 avocado, peeled, pit removed, finely chopped
Small handful of fresh coriander, finely chopped
1/2 Little Gem lettuce, shredded
Juice of 1–2 limes
2 tbsp soured cream
2 extra-large tortilla wraps
35g (11/2oz) Cheddar cheese, grated
2 handfuls of tortilla chips
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Hot sauce, to serve

Add the oil to a large frying pan and tip in the beef mince. Fry for 3–4 minutes until golden, breaking it up well with the back of a wooden spoon, then add the fajita or taco seasoning, red peppers and 2 tablespoons of water. Fry until the peppers have softened slightly, then turn off the heat.

Mix together the onion, tomato, avocado, coriander and Little Gem lettuce. Season with lime juice and salt, set aside.

Spread 1 tablespoon of soured cream on each tortilla wrap, sprinkle over the Cheddar cheese and a few spoonfuls of the salad mixture, then top with some beef and red onions. Crumble a handful of tortilla chips on top, then fold in the corners and tightly roll up into a burrito, taking care to keep everything tucked in.

Heat a dry frying pan and toast the burrito on all sides until crisp and golden and enjoy with lots of hot sauce.
