This week is full of activity which leaves me a limited amount of time for meal prep! I’ve opted for meals that take little effort to throw together like this Slow Cooked Beef Stroganoff. Leftovers will go straight in the freezer ready to use on a rainy day.
Roasted Pumpkin Soup
It’s time to elevate the humble pumpkin soup! With its deep, toasty flavour, this roasted pumpkin soup is a must-try. Best of all, the recipe requires minimal chopping and preparation. It only takes ten minutes to prepare this delicious, warm and comforting meal. Then leave the oven to work its magic. I like to top it with a dollop of sour cream, finely chopped chives, chilli flakes and crusty sourdough bread on the side.
One Pot Lasagna
Traditional lasagna is one of my most loved foods, but with two little people, I often did not have the energy to make it come dinner time. This One Pot Lasagna recipe is the perfect solution for those nights when you want a comforting, delicious meal without spending hours in the kitchen. This family-friendly recipe went viral soon after I shared it, and it is one of my most visited and most frequently made recipes. Perfectly cooked layers of pasta are tucked between rich layers of tomato sauce, which is topped with stretchy, melty mozzarella. It’s easy to customise to your liking. You can add grated veggies or your favourite herbs to give it a personal touch. It’s easy, freezer friendly, made in one pan, and enough to serve between 6-8 adults.
Hainanese Chicken Rice
For those who grew up eating this dish, like my husband and best friend, it holds a special place in their hearts. But even if you’re new to Hainanese chicken rice, don’t be intimidated by its reputation as a complicated dish. In reality, it’s much easier to make than it looks, and it’s a delicious meal that the whole family will love.
Slow Cooked Beef Stroganoff
Indulge in the comforting flavours of slow cooked beef stroganoff with this easy-to-make recipe, perfect for those cosy nights in. Tender and juicy beef that falls apart in your mouth is slow-cooked to perfection in a creamy sauce with mushrooms. A classic family favourite, this dish is versatile and can be frozen for later or cooked on the stove for a faster meal. Serve with your choice of pasta, rice or mashed potato.
These are vegetarian nachos my way. Beans loaded up with salads and seasoned with an incredible, homemade nachos seasoning (that can be made in bulk or on demand as I have here). Everyone can top their plate with their favourite toppings. Extra chilli for me and an excuse to make homemade margaritas. This is what fake-away dreams are made of. Inexpensive, delicious and on the table in less than 15 minutes.
One Pot Greek Chicken and Rice
This one-pot meal features tender chicken that’s been infused with zesty lemon and garlic flavours, cooked to perfection on a bed of fluffy rice. Every bite is packed with flavour as the chicken juices seep into the rice. I like to serve it with crumbled feta on top for a creamy and tangy finish. This meal is delicious and easy to prepare, making it the perfect dinner option for a busy weeknight that your whole family will enjoy.
Sticky Pork Noodles
Quick, easy and delicious. My sticky pork noodles are a family favourite, and the best part is that I can have dinner on the table in just 15 minutes! Using frozen vegetables saves prep time, but you can make this recipe your own and use your favourite vegetables. This recipe is an excellent addition to your weekly meal plan. It’s budget-friendly, easy to prepare and a hit with the kids!
