5 Impressive Yet Simple Recipes For The Week Ahead

Five recipes to get you through the 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 five 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!

Perfect scrambled eggs

Sometimes it's the basic dishes that cause us the most trouble, which is why we love this recipe. With clear, concise instructions and delicious ingredients, this is a great recipe to add to your repertoire. While they're delicious plain, we like to add some smoked salmon, chives and creme fraiche for a bit of variety. Try it out here.

Blood orange and polenta cake 

Blood orange is very in right now. Head to any brunch spot or café worth their salt and you're bound to see some sort of appearance from the fruit, whether its on porridge, in pastry or part of a dessert. To get in on the trend, add this cake to your meal plan for the week. It's perfectly Instagrammable and packs a serious punch of flavour. Get the recipe here.

Buckwheat pancakes

Ahead of Pancake Tuesday, we can't get our mind off of this amazing recipe. While we have plenty of recipes on offer on FOOD AND WINE, these buckwheat beauties are some of our favourites. They're light and fluffy but substantial enough that you could still enjoy them for dinner - we won't tell anyone if you only eat pancakes tomorrow! Get the recipe here.

Multi-seed brown bread

This bread is so easy to make that we think you'll end up whipping it up every week. If you don't think you'll get through the whole loaf, freeze it in individual portions and defrost it as needed - that's if you don't gobble up the whole thing as soon as it's baked. Try it out here

Curried cauliflower soup

It's still pretty chilly outside, but we think this soup recipe will warm you right up. If you're planning to meal prep for the week, this soup should do you for a few days and if you combine it with the brown bread, you'll stay full from lunchtime right until dinner. Try it out here
