The Perfect Midweek Meals

A lot of the time we find ourselves cooking the same few family meals as an afterthought at the end of a busy day. Farmdrop, the ethically-minded online grocer, have put together a list of 6 brilliant meals that will change up your midweek dinner time. These recipes can be thrown together in about half an hour; flavour-packed, quick dinners that will get the good stuff in your belly without spending hours in the kitchen, and the kids will love them too!

Veggie Enchiladas

A bit like fajitas but baked in a rich tomato sauce and topped with quality Cheddar, these veggie enchiladas are the perfect midweek meal. A family favourite packed full of flavour.

Tuna Pasta Bake

The family classic, tuna pasta bake, is a classic for a reason. Using cherry tomatoes and sustainably-fished skipjack tuna, with a subtle kick of chilli flakes and creamy melted mozzarella to top it all off. Delicious.

Chorizo & Bean Stew

This chorizo and bean stew recipe is a comforting, winter dish that you can get on the table in under 30 minutes. With protein-rich beans and a slightly spicy tomato sauce, this recipe also works with winter greens, like kale, chard or spinach, chopped and stirred into the mix for added colour.

Loaded-with-veg mac ‘n’ cheese

This mac n cheese recipe is a great way to load up on greens. Packed with broccoli, this is a midweek winner, especially if you want the kids to get more of their 5-a-day. This recipe will take 25 minutes to throw together, and you can leave the oven do the rest of the work for 25 minutes.

One-pot pasta

If you only have one pasta recipe in your repertoire let this 15-minute pasta recipe be it. A healthy, hearty one-pot dinner on the table in 15 minutes (and no need to drain the water)!

Oven-baked fish parcels

Fish parcel recipes are super easy to scale up and down, depending on how many you’re cooking for. This is a simple, healthy supper that requires minimal effort. It’s also one of the best ways to cook fish as all the flavourful juices aren’t able to escape. This recipe uses pouting – a member of the cod family – so it has a similar, tender flaking texture, but feel free to swap in any other fish fillets you can get hold of.
