Get stuck in with these Chicken and Black Bean Loaded Wedges. Our chefs have added shredded carrots to this recipe for a sneaky way to fit veggies into the meal without the kids noticing. Genius.
This unreal comforting bake makes an scrumptious midweek meal since. And, since it’s all cooked in an oven tray, it’s super easy. Wholesome, full of flavour and 100% guaranteed to leave you wanting to lick the plate. We’ll take two.
Risotto is so delicious, but the prospect of all that stirring can sometimes be a bit daunting. Chef André to the rescue! He’s simplified the process and created this recipe that lets you just put your risotto in the oven and forget about it until it’s time to eat. All the creamy, luxurious texture with none of the elbow work!
Quick, simple and delicious, our Thyme Roasted Chicken is a real weeknight winner. Roasting chicken with delicate herbs like thyme is a great way to bring the light flavour of the meat to life. Served alongside sweet roasted peppers, carrots and red onion, chunky potato wedges and topped with a sweet chilli glaze to bring some heat to the dish, you really can’t go wrong with the flavours in this dish, it’s a classic that everyone will love.
There’s an Italy-meets-Greece vibe to tonight’s dinner. Pasta and bacon lardons are in the Italian corner and feta cheese is representing the Greek contingent. They’re joined by luscious roast aubergine which is equally beloved of both countries. It’s like being on holiday in two places at once. For added dinner table fun, organise a geography quiz as dinner cooks and get the kids to point out Greece and Italy!
Sometimes, nothing but creamy pasta will do. Again, there are some well-hidden veggies in this recipe to please even the fussiest eaters thanks to the deliciously rich and creamy pasta sauce.
Create comfort in a pot with our One Pot Mexican Beef. We love this dish because it saves on washing up and time spent in kitchen, meaning more focus on mealtimes together.
The kids will love their veggies in these tasty bubble and squeak fritters.
