Noth­ing beats whole­some stews and steam­ing pies, so get your fix with a healthy twist

Adi­ges­tive dipped into a steam­ing cup of tea might do it. A joke so funny a bit of wee comes out, sure. But few pur­suits have the soul-warm­ing power of div­ing into some­thing hot and stodgy. Specif­i­cally the kind that leaves a crust on a casse­role dish and a gravy stain on your heart. If you’ve con­signed the com­fort food of your youth to birth­days, hol­i­days and bat mitz­vahs in your quest for liv­ing well, feast your eyes on this lot. We’ve re­cruited the help of nutri­tional ther­a­pist and healthy chef Amelia Freer to bring you food that will give you all the feels and then some. We’re not about to give you a burger with­out the bun (spoiler alert: it’s called a patty, and a happy meal it ain’t), but we’ve ditched the dou­ble cream and ral­lied the rain­bow to bring you health­ier, nutri­ent-rich takes on the old com­fort­ing clas­sics – and all with­out a naked burger in sight.
