Scroll on to discover three of our favourite recipes from this Insta-famous chef and cookbook author.

Sloppy giuseppe

This hearty dish of meatballs, herby tomato sauce and oozy mozzarella is a true winner. Serve with greens and a hunk of bread for a delicious and satisfying meal on a budget.

Vegan potato arrabbiata

A fresh and warming sauce made with tomatoes, garlic and chilli, arrabbiata is usually served with pasta or gnocchi. In this vegan recipe, Miguel's replaced the main carbohydrate with fluffy new potatoes for a lighter twist that makes the most of seasonal produce.

Gnocchi al forno

Super saucy, oh-so cheesy and as comforting as it gets, this gnocchi al forno recipe is a proper winter warmer. Using a blue cheese like Stilton means you can maximise cheesy flavour and save money because you don't need to use as much! Check out Miguel's recipe here.
