5 Easy Midweek Dinners 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.

Make dinnertime exciting again.

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.

One-pot chicken and rice

Sometimes the easiest option is the best and a one-pot meal is as simple as it sounds. This hero from Hugo Arnold is quick to make and tastes fantastic. A great family dish. Try it here.

Wild garlic pesto

Wild garlic season is almost over, so it's best to make the most of it while you can. We absolutely love wild garlic pesto as it's a simple and versatile recipe: use whatever oil and nuts or seeds you have on hand and it will always taste amazing. If you want to avoid food was, we recommend throwing in a little bit of whatever you have in your fridge - you'll often find a handful of spinach, basil and spring onions in our mix.

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

Chargrilled chicken caesar salad

Now that the weather is starting to warm up a little, we've begun to crave salad, especially this flavourful caesar salad. We love to prep extra croutons and use them as a topping for soup - try adding garlic and mixed herbs when cooking the bread for extra flavour. Get 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.
