5 Quick + Easy Dishes To Get You Through The Week

All the dinner inspiration you could ever dream of

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!

Garlic and herb chicken wings

We love all types of chicken wings equally – from buffalo to barbecue and everything in between – but sometimes a craving hits for a simple flavour combination which is when we turn to this easy recipe. The addition of Greek yoghurt helps to keep the wings moist, while the herbs and garlic pack a serious punch of flavour. The best part about this recipe is that it is endlessly customisable: try it out with chilli powder, lemon zest, raz-el-hanout and more. Get the recipe here.

Tom yum koong nam khon soup

Even though spring has technically sprung, we're still feeling the chill so we definitely want to make this warming soup this week. Packed with aromatics to help boost your immune system and delicious Irish seafood, this easy tom yum soup is always a winner. Try it out here

Indulgent banana split

There's something about nostalgic foods that will always have a special place in our hearts, which is why this grown-up banana split recipe is one of our all-time favourites. It's super quick to whip up, so it's perfect for a midnight snack or last-minute dessert. Get the recipe here

Chargrilled chicken Caesar salad

There's a reason that Caesar salad has stayed on menus for decades – it's always delicious. This recipe from The Pigeon House is surprisingly easy to whip up and making the dressing at home means you can customise it as you see fit. Don't like anchovies? Leave them out. Craving something acidic? Add more lemon to your dressing. The options are endless! We especially like to add basil into our dressing to give it a slightly more Mediterranean flavour.

Homemade scones

You can't beat a classic and with a recipe this simple, why would you even try? Edward Hayden's perfect scone recipe is one that you will definitely make over and over again because it results in perfect scones every single time. To change up the flavours a little, try adding an extra ingredient or two every now and then. Some of our favourites include lemon zest and blueberries, orange zest and raspberries, and cheese and chives. Get the recipe here
