Recipes created by Simon RImmer exclusively for The One Brand

Simon Rimmer is supporting The One Brand - a range of everyday essential products which are sold via major retailers across the UK and internationally, to fund humanitarian aid projects across rural communities in Africa - by creating three unique recipes using their products.

They kindly sent me through some of their products for me to try out the recipes below. I haven't had a chance to test them yet, mainly because I've been trialling Jenny Craig this month, but I'll tell how it goes when we do give them a go.
