Solo: Cooking and Eating for One
By Linda Tubby
'Cooking for yourself is a most satisfying part of self-nurture; when thought and care are given to the process, from shopping for ingredients to preparing a meal, you can take great pleasure in eating the results' writes Linda Tubby in her introduction to Solo. Linda's imaginative and inspiring recipes are divided into 5 chapters; Quick Fixes, Almost Instant, A Little Ahead, Give it Time and Those Little Extras, making it simple to find the perfect meal for any occasion. Create speedy meals to throw together such as Salad Lyonnaise and Crispy Sausage, Red Rice, Romanesco and Pomegranate, or take your time preparing yourself a delicious meal such as Marinated Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb or Pea & Lemon Risotto with Shimeji Mushrooms & Burrata. Linda also gives handy tips for spicing up otherwise lacklustre dishes, such as keeping your larder stocked with ready-to-use additions like Chilli and Garlic Oil, Toasted Pine Nuts or Crispy Shallots.

These recipes are cooked in an electric slow cooker, and include soups, stews, casseroles, curries, pot roasts and even a few desserts. All the dishes benefit from long, slow cooking and, because of that, most of them use inexpensive ingredients - cheaper cuts of meat, for example, are delicious when cooked at a low temperature for a long time; they emerge succulent and so tender they can be cut with a fork. Most come with suggestions for accompaniments, but there are also recipes for couscous, roasted potatoes, polenta, pilaf, mash and more, to help you out.
