7-veg tomato sauce | Vegetable recipe | Jamie Oliver recipes
There are three great things about this recipe. First up, it’s great for embracing whatever veg you’ve got to hand – fresh, frozen or tinned, it’s all good. Secondly, tomato sauce is so versatile – you can use it for lasagne, curry, pasta sauce, chilli, on pizza, in a soup, you name it. Finally, it makes a big batch, so portion it up and freeze it, so you’re prepped for future meals. I’ve used two tins of tomatoes here, but feel free to chuck more in (if you’ve got them) to make the sauce go…

Jumbo fish fingers | Fish recipes | Jamie Oliver recipes
Something as humble and everyday as a fish finger can be made more nutritious if you make your own, and even better, you can go jumbo in size. I like to use salmon, but white fish works just as well. It's the perfect family favourite to have in the freezer. I’ve used a side of salmon here, but you can absolutely scale this down according to how many fillets you have. Also, have fun with the breadcrumbs, adding different flavours to pimp your ride – we have loads of ideas in the tips below.
