There is no octopus in this soup! This is a very dodgy but yummy soup my kids like for a quick lunch on the weekends.

Both octopus and squid are high in protein and very low in fat. Octopus supplies an impressive range of vitamins and minerals, including a large quantity of iron, as well as lots of niacin. Squid also offers valuable amounts of niacin, as well as phosphorus.

This is a very flavourful tomato-based stew, originally from Malta, where octopus is simmered with potatoes, tomatoes, red wine and a hint of citrus. Serve over spaghetti if desired.

This dish is called octapodi kokkinisto in Greek. For many, cooking octopus may seem daunting - but I assure you, it couldn't be easier. Never add water; you want the octopus to cook in its own juices for best flavour.

This is a twist on a Rosemary Stanton recipe. We served this with simple steamed broccoli, and some fresh pasta (we used fettucini). We found that the sauce stuck to the fettucini quite nicely, and it would be lovely with some chopped parsely on top to finish it off, or some mandolined capsicum as we did, which gives a lovely, cooling, contrasting crunch.

The smoky flavours of the grilled octopus and the roasted capsicum are complemented by the tang of the rocket leaves in a dish that is just as delicious cooked on the barbecue.
