Asparagus and smoked cheese salad

This is a very simple but tasty salad.  I put lettuce, spinach, red pepper, cucumber and spring onion in a bowl. Then added some smoked soya cheese chunks.  I then blanched some asparagus tips and drained and put on top then covered with freshly ground black pepper.

Strawberry and vanilla shortbread

This is my normal shortbread recipe with a teaspoon each of vanilla essence and strawberry flavouring. I wasn't sure if the flavour would work but judging by how quickly they were eaten it obviously did.

Spicy mushrooms with spinach salad

This is such a quick lunch but really full of flavour.  I lined the bottom of a bowl with spinach. Then I fried chopped mushrooms with cherry tomatoes and spring onion. I added some italian herbs and chilli powder for some flavour. Then I served it with some soya cheese sprinkled on top and some freshly ground black pepper.
