It's the start of a new week which means it's time to figure out what to cook.

Our food cravings have inspired this list, based on recipes we've been posting on the site lately. The five dishes below are ones we know we'll cook again and again, so try them out with us and let us know what you think!

Seasonal Soup With Red Pesto

When the weather turns chilly and the rain is lashing down (like it did all weekend), there's one dish we always turn to for comfort: soup. This seasonal soup from Dr Rupy Aujla's newest book, The Doctor's Kitchen - Eat To Beat Illness, is delicious and the red pesto is so good that you'll want to make a double batch and save some for the rest of the week.

Buttermilk Scones With Clementine Butter

This delicious Hugo Arnold recipe is ideal for breakfast, lunch, when you have guests coming around or just because you fancy a scone. While the clementine butter is a fabulous addition, if it's not your cup of tea, the scones also taste great with jam and butter (or cream). Try out this recipe here

Roasted Beetroot Hummus With Grissini Sticks

Hummus is easily one of our favourite foods and mixing it up a little with beetroot is the perfect way to freshen up a classic recipe. The grissini are delicious with the dip, but would also work very well as nibbles at a party. Get the recipe here.

Mint Chocolate Melts

Louise Lennox's recipes are always delicious and these chocolate melts are no exception. These chocolates are so easy to whip up that you'll want to make them all the time; We also love that they're pretty enough to give as edible gifts. Try the recipe here

Blackberry And Custard Doughnuts

Ireland is still in the midst of its doughnut obsession, but nothing can beat the homemade variety. These doughnuts call for blackberry jam, but they're also delicious with raspberry or strawberry. We guarantee that you will fall in love with this delicious recipe as soon as you try it out.
