Browse our great collection of midweek meal recipes, for when you want top-notch flavour but lack the energy to spend hours sweating over the hob.
Many dishes in this collection benefit from a speedy overall cooking time, so you can get the dish on the table in under and hour from start to finish. For example, Josh Eggleton's salmon en papillotte recipe is ready in just twenty minutes, and shows that speedy dishes needn't sacrifice sophisticated flavour. Shu Han Lee's miso ramen soup recipe is another speedy treat, which can be on the table in fifteen minutes and is full of warming comfort.
Other recipes in this collection may seem like it takes a while to make, but much of this is inactive oven or hob cooking time, so you can put your feet up while the dish bubbles away. Nathan Outlaw's one-pot roast chicken recipe or William Drabble's comforting lamb stew recipe are great examples of delicious hands-off dishes.
