Meatballs and spinach in tomato sauce (pictured) make a quick and easy dinner recipe served with spaghetti or crusty bread for dipping. This is a really simple recipe to scale up or down, depending on how many people you’re catering to. This recipe serves four, but if you’re cooking for fewer people or simply have too much left over, it freezes really well so you can defrost at a later date when you fancy it again for the ultimate speedy midweek meal.
Midweek meals are all about rustling up food that’s good for you, full of flavour and yet takes no time at all to make. Especially after a long, busy day, the last thing you want to do is get stuck slaving away in the kitchen, or, worse still, reaching for that handy takeaway menu. Dishes like our simple seared salmon with horseradish, or courgette fritters are great choices for something light, yet filling that you can make in no time.
If you love meat and can’t do without it, try our lemongrass chicken skewers – there’s nothing easier and they’re great with a simple salad on the side. Or, our Middle Eastern burger is a real delight too.
Whether you’re looking for a speedy fish dish for supper tonight, or you’d prefer something lighter and vegetarian or you simply want a quick, classic recipe, we’ve got everything you might need to create a wonderful dinner with hardly any hassle at all.
