5 Easy Weeknight Dinners To Add To Your Rotation

It's the start of a new week which means it's time to figure out what to cook.

All the midweek dinner inspiration you could possibly need.

Our food cravings have inspired this list, based on recipes we've been posting on the site lately. The dishes below are ones we know we'll cook again and again, so try them out with us and let us know what you think.

BBQ chicken and avocado tacos

Allegedly, the weather is going to pick up this week and if it does, we'll be firing up the barbecue and trying out this recipe. Grilling chicken adds so much flavour to it, but if you want a veggie option, try using aubergine or halloumi in its place. Try the recipe here.

Irish farmhouse cheese and pancetta tortilla

Clodagh McKenna's recipes never fail us and it's likely that you already have all of the necessary ingredients for this dish at home already. We love to make this tortilla at the beginning of the week and then tuck into it throughout the week for lunch or dinner - it works really well with a green salad or this delicious cabbage slaw.

Aubergine, coconut and peanut curry

The new normal of this pandemic has started to settle around us so we're returning to our old habits of meal prep. This is an ideal recipe to prep ahead of time and packs a serious serving of veggies, so you can enjoy a healthy dinner before indulging in the cookies from above. Get this curry recipe here

Chimac's Korean BBQ Chicken With Quick Pickled Red Onion

The sauce which accompanies this dish is the real star. It's tasty, but not too spicy and a nice introduction to Korean ingredients for those who might not be so familiar. Brown sugar and apple cider vinegar caramelize beautifully over high heat, but the real magic comes from doenjang, Korea’s answer to miso, and gochugaru, Korean red pepper flakes, which add a gentle but tasty kick. Serve straight from the BBQ with a summer salad of fresh green leaves or for something a little more filling, rice and vegetables. Try the recipe here. 

Tempura prawn bap

This fakeaway combines the best parts of a chipper with your own culinary skills, resulting in a delicious crunchy sandwich. The batter is super crunchy and works well with lots of different foods, especially chicken, fish and vegetables. Serve up this bap with chips and extra gribiche sauce for the ultimate treat meal. Get the recipe here
