Nutritional Cooking

Open Kitchen recipe videos!

In partnership with Onward Homes, we've created a range of tasty, simple, healthy recipe videos. The recipes use a slow cooker to ensure low energy costs as well as low ingredient costs, and all recipes can be adapted easily to incorporate any fresh, tinned or frozen vegetables, to help to reduce food waste at home.  All recipes are suitable for absolute beginners, and include basic chopping skills tutorials. We also have one minute versions of each recipe on our YouTube channel, for those who just need a bit of inspiration. Happy cooking!
