SELF-ISOLATION INSPIRATION

Store-cupboard recipes to get you through - both our favourites and yours

FELICITY CLOAKE'S PERFECT BANANA BREAD

Victoria tested this at the weekend and can verify it's a winner.

No walnuts to hand? Sub in chocolate chips, pecans, coconut chips or leave this one out altogether.

DIANA HENRY'S COCONUT & CHICKPEA DAHL

Take a look in your cupboard - see chickpeas, coconut milk and ten million different spices?
You probably have everything you need for this. Hannah used coconut cream instead of milk and thinned it out with chopped tomatoes. 

JACKIE MIDDLETON'S CAPRESE FRITTATA

Admittedly, we played fast and loose with the recipe for this one - basically stealing the egg to cream ratio, and adding tomatoes, feta and dried basil. 

But that's what frittatas are all about, using up whatever's around. 

NIGEL SLATER'S SAUSAGES AND MUSTARD

You can always rely on old Nigel for simplicity - here he is again with another classic.


If you've got some decent sausages in the fridge or freezer, now's the time to use them up for a delicious dinner. 

DIANA HENRY'S ARROZ AL HORNO

Jess made this treat using Ginger Pig's pork belly and lardons, cleverly stowed away in the freezer pre-lockdown times.

ALISON ROMAN'S SALTED BUTTER & CHOCOLATE CHUNK SHORTBREAD COOKIES

You've probably seen at least one person on your Instagram feed talk about THE Alison Roman cookies, which - we can confirm - do live up to the hype.

JAMIE OLIVER'S PAELLA

This recipe is for chicken and chorizo paella but Becca used just prawns and it was just as delicious. With rice, stock and frozen peas, this is a store cupboard hero.

KATIE ANDREW'S BANANA BREAD

With a step-by-step tutorial on her Insta highlights, @itskatiefam takes us through how to make her take on banana bread, aka the go-to bake for lockdown.

MELISSA CLARK'S OLIVE OIL ZUCCHINI BREAD

More of a legit 'bread' than banana bread, this courgette (to you and me) loaf is good on its own but even better spread with butter, cream cheese, or whatever you're feeling.

DIANA HENRY'S ROASTED TOMATOES WITH WHITE BEANS

From the book 'From the Oven to the Table', this salad uses beans and capers from your store cupboard alongside roasted tomatoes.

BON APPETIT SOUR CREAM & SPRING ONION BISCUITS

Yes, they call them scallions and yes, they call them biscuits but trust us, don't let the terminology differences put you off making these beauties.

PAUL HOLLYWOOD'S STILTON & WALNUT SODA BREAD

Soda bread is (perhaps the only thing that is) great for a lockdown. No buttermilk? Sour some milk with lemon or vinegar. No Stilton or walnut? Replace with another firm cheese or nut, or leave it out altogether.

GORDON RAMSAY'S SCRAMBLED EGGS

This recipes involves some on-the-heat/off-the-heat back and forth but it's worth it for failsafe deliciousness.
