Many supermarkets in the UK are an amazing resource for recipes. Free magazines that can be picked up in-store, recipe cards and websites make the collection of an amazing quantity of recipes very easy. Here is a selection of a small number of recipes from the website of the UK supermarket chain, Sainsbury's.
