Batch cooking is a great way to ensure that you and your family can enjoy a delicious meal after a long day.
We know that times are tough right now. If you're anything like us, then you're probably working from home all day and maybe trying to homeschool your kids while you're at it because their classes are cancelled. Frontline workers, like nurses and doctors, are working countless hours in dire conditions to help the nation get through this pandemic.
Even though it might seem like an afterthought, food is really important right now. It's crucial that we all stay full, healthy and happy if we're to get through these scary times. We know you might not have a huge amount of time to cook right now, which is why batch cooking is a great idea: cook once and you get a few meals out of it.
We have heaps of recipes that you can easily batch cook on the site, like this easy meatballs dish or this delicious Irish stew, which can also be made in a slow-cooker. We also have winter warmer ideas from Kevin Dundon, our favourite comfort food recipes, quick breakfast ideas and much more on the site to help make sure you still eat delicious and filling meals while navigating our new reality.
To expand our ever-growing repertoire of batch cooking recipes, we reached out to Glenisk for some of their favourites. Check them out below and if you try them out, let us know how you get on.
