Garnish with fresh mint leaves to serve.

Baked chicken and herbs - Serves 2

Finely chop 1 small courgette and 100g mushrooms. Peel 2 small tomatoes and chop them into quarters.

Rub the chicken with half a lemon and lay on squares of aluminum foil. Cover with the veg, parsley, tarragon and chives and season.

Close the foil up to make parcels and bake in a hot oven (210°C, Gas Mark 7) for 30 minutes.

Summer wheat salad - Serves 2

Cook 75g pre-cooked whole wheat for 10 minutes, drain and leave to cool. Wash, peel and dice half a cucumber, half a red pepper and a tomato.

Chop a sprig of parsley and a sprig of coriander. Mix the herbs, vegetables and wheat together.

Mix the juice of a lemon, a tablespoonful of olive oil and a tablespoonful of water together, season to taste, mix with the wheat salad and serve chilled.
