We promise we’re not judging you for trying to fit in another six mouthfuls when you’re already so full. For any parents, this is the perfect dish to get the kids involved with making!

Broccoli Stuffed Sweet Potato with Pepper Steak

Bring restaurant quality cooking to your own home for with this pepper steak pub classic!

Barbecued Pesto Lamb with Pumpkin Salad

We all know that Lamb and pesto are the perfect pair (and if you didn’t, you do now!) so this dinner is set to go down a treat! Lamb cutlets are the juiciest of all and we’re totally fine to go without the knife and fork for this one. It’s a travesty not to leave the bone bare! 

Chicken Pad Thai

This forever fan favourite is packed with protein, delivering a healthier version of this meal without sacrificing any of the traditional dense flavour. You’ll have a hard time convincing yourself it wasn’t picked up from your local Thai restaurant. We never doubted you for a second!

Crispy Halloumi Served with Chicken Wings and Creamy Mustard Dipping Sauce

In the hierarchy of the cheese world, halloumi would have to be at the top and we have our arguments ready if you don’t agree. It is the perfect little bite of salty, tangy deliciousness and we’re not promising that you won’t ‘accidentally’ cook and eat more than the recipe requires (hate when that happens!). And don’t get us started on the creamy mustard dipping sauce… The name clearly speaks for itself, it’s so good you’ll want to dip more than just your chicken wings in there… your haloumi and side veggies of course. Is it still unacceptable to lick the plate if you’re not in public?
