5 Easy Midweek Dinners To Get You Through The Week

Five delicious recipes to try this week.

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

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.

Roasted aubergine with peanuts, chilli and lime

Finding all the washing up a little much lately? Us too, so we were excited to see that cookbook author Rukmini Iyer recently added The Roasting Tin Around the World to her collection of cookbooks.

Packed with 75 recipes, these one-pot dishes are full of flavour and sure to cut down on the amount of cleaning you have to do every evening. We particularly like the spicy kick this aubergine dish, plus the peanuts add a delicious crunch. Try the recipe here

This honey ginger chicken recipe uses carrots in place of noodles, resulting in a filling yet light dish. If you're not feeling carrots, try using courgette noodles instead or if you don't want to use chicken, prawns would work really well here too. Try the recipe here.

Marinated halloumi kebabs

The weather might not be great, but we're keeping summer alive by firing up the barbecue as often as possible. These kebabs are an easy, meat-free barbecue option that you can customise as you see fit.

Not mad about peppers or onions? Sub them out for some aubergine, courgette or any other vegetable you'd prefer. Get the recipe here

Surf and turf with roasted asparagus

Who doesn't love a good steak? This surf and turf recipe is surprisingly quick and easy to whip up, only requiring a few ingredients to create a delicious dish.

If prawns aren't your favourite type of seafood, this dish would work really well with crab claws or scallops. Try it out here

Chilli and crab linguine

This pasta dish is comfort food at its finest. Full of spicy notes and fresh seafood, this looks so impressive but is surprisingly easy to whip up. The pasta recipe is a great one to add to your arsenal – it's so versatile and works with a multitude of different sauces and toppings. Try it out here
