Jamie has given his support to leading conservation organisation the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) by donating this recipe for 2013's Earth Hour. This modern Greek salad with spinach, chickpea & feta parcels will happily feed four and contains 516 calories per serving. 

The TV chef said: "Our eating habits need to change, not just for the sake of our health, but for the environment too.

"We can all make simple changes to help, like always buying as much local produce as possible, choosing higher-welfare meat, and even trying to have a couple of meat-free days a week. Together we can make a massive difference. I'm on the journey of trying to evolve things myself and I hope you can come with me. Thanks to organisations like WWF, when you become aware of issues, it's hard to ignore them."

On Saturday 23 March at 8.30pm, hundreds of millions of people across the world are expected to turn off their lights for an hour to show they care about the future of our planet.

Make sure you eat before Earth Hour by keeping the prep time low. A food processor such as Tefal Fresh Express is perfect as it chops fruit and veg in an instant so that it's ready to throw into a bowl or put straight in the pan.
