Off I toddled to the supermarket, picked up the ingredients and headed home.

“IT WAS DELICIOUS AND WILL BE A REGULAR!” Easy cheesy When my kids saw the front cover of the May issue with the Classic Cottage Pie with Cheesy Bacon Mash (p31), they said “Mum, you have to make this!”. And so we did. It was delicious and will be a regular feature through the cooler months. My 11-year-old daughter took this picture and I think she wants a job with Super Food Ideas in a few years time! Rachel Kendon, via email CROWD PLEASER The shepherds pie feature (May, p22) sparked a renewed love for an old classic in our house! With cool nights returning, a one-dish wonder that combines meat, veg and bubbling sauce really hits the spot. I baked mine in a large dish to feed a crowd! Sonja Ladbrooke, via email Winner…

Claire says: Eating well is important for so many reasons, including a good night’s shut-eye, and is essential for people with diabetes. Luckily, we’ve got lots of healthy meals that are also delicious! Diabetes friendly Following a healthy, balanced diet is key for many people managing their diabetes. Diabetes-friendly recipes need to be low in saturated fat, high in fibre, low sodium and with a low glycaemic index (dishes that lead to a slower rise in blood glucose and therefore insulin levels). Check out these four diabetes-friendly, flavour-packed recipes from the issue. MUSHROOMS These days, many foods are referred to as ‘superfoods’, but mushrooms really do live up to the name.
