For me, cooking is therapeutic. I love being in the kitchen and I especially love batch cooking. Usually, once a week, I spend a few hours a week meal-prepping and batch cooking for the week ahead. By doing this, I know we are having freshly cooked, healthy, nutritious dinners every day of the week. The difference is, I’m not getting home from work tired and then slaving away in the kitchen instead of spending time with my family. I simply take the dish out of the freezer the night before and then reheat the batch cooked food, or cook through the meal prepped food.
Anti-Pasti Pitta’sThis dish is simple and easy to prepare for lunch. Alternatively, it is a great recipe for a tapas platter.Aromatic Lamb KebabThe great thing about this recipe is you can prepare the marinade and freeze it in batches so you can use it whenever you want.
You can also marinate the skewers and freeze them for when you need them. It's versatile and tasty - sounds good to me!Arrabiata Pasta BakeA super easy and hearty dinner that is so versatile, you can even enjoy it cold the next day for lunch. Scrummy!Asian Beef, Red Pepper & Pak ChoiI adore Asian food, but I'm a British woman who has ZERO first-hand knowledge of Asian cooking... I don't for a second pretend that this is authentic Asian cuisine, but it's bloody tasty all the same...Balsam-Honey Glazed Chorizo & Traffic Light PeppersWe enjoy this dish all year round, but it is especially nice during a warm Spring/Summers day and takes the monotony out of BBQ's. Don't get me wrong, a BBQ is lovely, but this breaks the norm, yet still screams light and punchy in flavours.Balsamic Bruschetta with Mixed Leaf Rocket & HalloumiThis dish is perfect as a simple shared starter at a dinner party, or as a lunchtime treat.Balsamic Glazed Salmon, Pepper & Sweet PotatoA healthy hearty and wholesome dinner that is packed full of punchy flavours.Banging Thai Green Curry with Chunky VegThis dish is my kids favourite! They love it and they actually eat all the vegetables which is always a bonus. If you want more kick add some extra green curry paste or some chopped green chilli’s. Serve with thai crackers to dunk in the super tasty sauce.Bangladeshi Lamb CurryThis curry is the absolute ultimate dish for a Friday Night Fake Away. Team it with our Indian banquet dishes and you are onto a winner!BBQ Pulled Pork BapLunch with the lads, or grazing with the girls, these BBQ pulled pork baps are delicious both hot and cold. Serve with a banging red cabbage coleslaw on a summers day with a cocktail while watching the kids run around the garden - a simple bap turns into heaven on a plate.
