Whenever you are trying to save on your grocery budget, freezer finds will always be your friends. We grabbed some frozen hake portions and used them to whip up the best fish tacos ever.
Had a long week? Our sweet and sour pork comes together in a mere 25 minutes, and it’s another one of our one-pot wonders, so there will be no dishes to clean up except your pot!
Hello, comfort food! If you are looking for a midweek meal on a dime, look no further than our rich and creamy fish and pasta bake. It will be a hit with the kids too, and feel free to add any extra veggies you desire!
The tummy warming flavours from North Africa are all you need to bring new life to a chicken dinner. Our Moroccan roast chicken is inexpensive to cook and makes for some amazing next-day leftovers.
We took some simple vegetarian ingredients and turned them into a lovely starter or, in larger portions, our dal soup makes a great cheap and cheerful family dinner. And remember that because they are small, split in half and skinned, red lentils are the quickest cooking of all pulses. However, they tend to disintegrate – this makes them great for dals and soups, less so for salads or sides.
So we thought making French toast from frozen waffles would be a great idea, and we weren’t disappointed! We decided to go with warm savoury flavours to complement the cooling weather. You don’t even have to make these French toast waffles from the frozen ones, we included a basic waffle recipe below if you’d rather make your own.
Dinner can literally be ready in 15 minutes with this tuna and pea pasta. We used orzo, those small little pieces of pasta shaped rice because it has the most amazing texture for a dish such as this. All you have to do is throw it all together.
Get your protein fix with this incredible mid-week bake. The spicy chicken is packed with the warm flavours of chilli, paprika, cumin and cinnamon. This dish is also budget-friendly and super comforting for the cooler weather.
If you are looking for a great appetiser the next time you have guests over, a cheesy focaccia always goes down well. We love it because people can grab a slice and walk around and mingle without needing a plate. And our meat-free roast veg and feta flatbread will be a hit all round.
We are all about work breakfasts here at MK. We are all in the habit of getting to our desks in the morning and settling in for the day with a heartening brekkie in front of us. Make a batch of these BLT mini frittatas when you have some time and freeze them in sandwich bags. Then you’ll be good to go all week long.
