Quick suppers recipes

The weekday crunch can take its toll on the home cook – but a meal doesn’t have to take 20 steps and hours of simmering to make it impressive or delicious. Whip up a speedy salad and add chargrilled meat or seafood for a hearty, healthy meal, or flash fry fish and serve with crunchy blanched greens. Quick stir-fries seal in all the flavours and nutrients of your food and are perfect atop a bed of rice or tender noodles – get your carbs on the hob while you chop up the ingredients to get ahead.
