Quick recipes are ideal for when you’re short on time and after a long day, don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen cooking up a meal. We’ve got quick, tasty solutions that’ll fill you up and will take hardly any time at all to make.
Stir-fries are a great option for when you want to have something healthy and quick for dinner. Full of plenty of veg, with or without meat or with prawns, once your chosen vegetables have softened, it’s pretty much ready. Low in calories and full of vitamins, this is the ideal speedy supper if you’re feeling a little low on energy after a busy day.
Pasta dishes are also another quick solution for when you’re hungry and have no time. King prawn and peppadew linguine is a really nice adult pasta recipe with big juicy prawns and a nice sweet edge from the peppadew peppers. This recipe serves four, so you can feed the whole family with it, but if you’re cooking for more people then it’s really easy to scale it up.
Our quick salad recipe selection is also extensive so give our baby beetroot and Wensleydale salad a go, or if you fancy something a little different, our three-bean tikka salad is a real winner too. If you want some fish then you should try our smoked trout with horseradish, beetroot and cress recipe, which also makes for a great starter at a dinner party! And because it takes no time at all to make, you can focus on getting the main and dessert done instead!
If you’ve got a sweet tooth and want to make a quick, easy dessert, we have plenty of recipes for you to try. From a quick peach cheesecake, iced berries with a hot white chocolate sauce or chocolate chip cookies to something more extravagant like our chilled mocha soufflé, we’ve got your dessert options covered!
Knocking up a quick lunch, supper or dessert doesn’t mean having to compromise on flavour, and you can still make sure you’re eating food that's good for you with some of our wonderful quick recipe ideas.
