Fed up of cooking the same old meals? If you’re looking for new quick and easy recipes, look no further!
This week’s family meal planner includes stir-fried sesame beef and cabbage, chargrilled chicken fillets, turkey and cranberry stuffing wrap with spelt salad, avocado, prawn and lime juice salad, and store cupboard pizza.
The approximate cost is just £32.14 for a family of four for seven days! (price correct at time of publication – supermarket prices and offers may vary – exclusive of some store cupboard staples).
Stir fried sesame beef and cabbage: Quick and easy to cook. This recipe uses beef steak but it works just as well with chicken or leftover beef from Sunday dinner. Kale also works well instead of savoy cabbage.
Approx price: £6.04 or £1.51 per portion.
Chargrilled chicken fillets with Waldorf salad: Although this is a barbeque recipe, just pop it in the oven for 20 minutes if you prefer. You could even make my own barbeque sauce but don’t worry if you haven’t the time, there are some delicious ones on the market, just check the sugar content on the label. Double the salad or add a grain for hungrier members of the family.
Approx price: £6.77 or 84p per portion.
Turkey and cranberry stuffing wrap with spelt Mediterranean salad: Turkey is great – it’s lean, delicious and available all year round. If you can’t get the cranberry sauce, a tomato or corn relish works well too. Try out this spelt salad. Cook the spelt the night before to save time.
Approx price: £7.24 or £1.81 per portion.
Avocado, prawn and lime juice salad with coleslaw: Don’t make the mistake of buying unripe green avocados as they are inedible try them nearly black and fairly soft to the touch. These not only cut like a dream they are intensely smooth and rich. Contrast this with the crispness of the coleslaw and the softness of the prawns, a match made in heaven. Once again serve with a grain or just simple brown bread and butter if exceptionally hungry.
