Busy family cooks need a repertoire of speedy suppers up their sleeves, so Sarah at Dinner with Crayons and I have introduced a new blogging event challenging folks to share their latest 30 minute (or less!) rapid meal ideas so we can all be inspired and cheer up our weekly meal plans.
Here are the tasty morsels that have been sent in for February…
Pasta with spinach sauce at Kuechalatein, is both quick and nutritious so perfect for growing kids.
5:2 Salmon & Spring Onion Gratins at Lavender & Lovage looks far too delicious to be diet fodder.
Rocket and walnut farfalle at Dinner With Crayons looks fresh and delicious – I especially like the walnut element giving a fabulous crunch to the dish.
Pulled Pork with Savoy Cabbage and Noodles, another speedy supper idea from Dinner With Crayons and as my boys adore cabbage this is would be a winner for them.
Cancel the takeaway and make Spices Galore Coconut Dal with Coconut Milk and Cranberries – sounds like a great combination to me.
I love the look of Family Friends Food Flat Bread Pizza – quick but oh-so-satisfying. Pizza is my go-to meal for play date teas as you can customise the toppings for everyone, or better yet, get them to make their own!
I entered my Veggie Meatballs in Creamy Tomato Sauce as it’s one of my boys’ favourite weeknight suppers that’s ready in no time, but really fills them up. I tend to make a big batch of the sauce, freeze the leftovers for even speedier suppers on those nights when you just need dinner on the table *now*.
Taste space: Indian Spiced Creamed Collard Greens Tofu looks so healthy I think you’d morph into Gwyneth Paltrow after eating it 😉
Rocket, stilton and walnut pesto – the foundation for many a speedy supper! by Sarah at Dinner With Crayons.
Quorn and mushrooms in white wine by We Don’t Eat Anything With a Face looks good enough for a dinner party. We love quorn fillets in this house so this is definitely going on my list.
Spicy Quirky Serendipitious – Chicken Tortilla Soup with Greek Twist looks exactly the kind of meal i’d like to tuck into in front of one of our nightly Breaking Bad marathons.
Gorgeously photographed Leftover Roast Beef Hash by Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary is a brilliant way of using up leftovers for an express weeknight meal. I could just dive straight into that pan.
Creamy Bacon Leek and Mushroom Pasta by Searching for Spice features some of my favourite flavours with comforting pasta – brilliant!
Slow cooked Ox Cheeks by Fuss Free Flavours – less than 30 minutes prep time so we’ll let that one in! Especially as that glass of red has my name on it 😉
Thanks everyone for their speedy suppers, if you’d like to add your March speedy suppers there’s a new linky below. Don’t forget also, sister event Dead Easy Desserts for those sweet dishes also ready in under 30 minutes which is being hosted by Sarah on Maison Cupcake.
