Nadiya’s Fast Flavours 2 December 2021: Thursday on BBC Two

Series 1 Episode 4 of 6 – Nadiya Hussain shares delicious recipes for things that are both fresh and a little bit healthy. These are some lighter meal alternatives, all of which are foolproof recipes that are simple to prepare and easy to master.

To kick off, Nadiya cooks up a bright and beautiful butternut squash soup, where she makes the flavour sing by adding spiced saffron for warmth and the juice of a grapefruit for an intense citrus hit. Rather than throwing away the seeds, she toasts them in oil before sprinkling them with fragrant mango powder to use as a crunchy topping.

Next up is a delicious crunchy salad. Nadiya admits that she used to struggle to get excited by salads, as they can be so plain and uninspiring, but that all changed on a filming trip to Thailand. While filming a scene in a market, she had a crunchy papaya salad with green beans and peanuts, and her mind was blown. Nadiya has created a unique version of this Thai classic, using the more accessible and affordable cucumber as well as juicy prawns and a punchy dressing packed with sour, sweet, tart, and spicy Thai flavours.

Nadiya always has cake in the house, and she shares her recipe for a vegan and gluten-free apple and olive oil bake. Not healthy per se, it is still a lighter alternative to some of her more decadent recipes and full of fresh fruity flavour.

Finally, Nadiya turns her attention to a lighter alternative to the roast dinner. As the centrepiece, she takes a side of fresh salmon and coats it with a salsa verde crumb, while caramelised miso onions make a delicious side.

Meanwhile, Georgina Hayden shares a treasured recipe for a Greek Cypriot kebab and zesty salad with creamy advocado, punchy radishes and a lemon and tahini dressing.
