Midweek meals

Well now you can ring in the changes. We have dozens of recipe ideas that will inspire you and bring great tasting variety back into your midweek meals.

Add new variety to your midweek meals

Of course we've got all the family favourites such as chilli con carne, moussakashepherd's pie, and lasagne but with the simple addition of a few herbs and spices you can turn your lamb mince into a delicious spicy Keema and discover a whole realm of new and tasty dishes. Here's how .

Who wants to spend a lot of time in the kitchen after a long day's work? We certainly don't. Many of our recipes are fast to prepare and quick to cook. Better still, with our slow cooker recipes you can throw all the ingredients into the one pot. Leave it on low all day and return home to the delicious aroma of a nutritious meal, that's ready and waiting. Relax and enjoy the evening.

Family meals or dinner party specials

Midweek meals don't need to be dull and ordinary. Many of our midweek recipe ideas make great dinner party specials to impress your guests. Whether it's beef stroganoff or a traditional Greek moussaka these dishes can cook in the oven while you join your guests for a few drinks. But remember, don't over-do it on a school night !
