10 amazing tasty healthy midweek meals

With an abundance of fresh, seasonal produce popping up in store and the promise of longer spring days and alfresco dining, we're loving all that spring time brings. Plus it's a great opportunity to move away form the stodgy, heavy food of winter and embrace colourful, healthy spring suppers. 

So get cooking and enjoy these colourful, low fat, low salt, low sugar recipes! Bon appetit.

Fillet of fish traybake with peppers and broccoli

Versatile white fish gets a Mediterranean makeover with lemon, olives and peppers. Plus it all cooks in one pan - ideal for a quick midweek meal.

One-pan biryani

If you're thinking of getting a takeaway, this homemade biryani dish will be ten times tastier. If you like things spicy, add extra chilli to this traditional dish of veg, rice and dried fruit. 

Butternut squash and spinach curry

Looking for a veggie feast? Our great-tasting recipe uses freezer heroes and basic store-cupboard ingredients. You could make double portions and keep the rest for lunch or pop in the freezer.

Smoky bean fajitas

Another veggie marvel - the kids will love making up their own fajitas. Plus if you have some of the bean and pepper mix leftover you could serve it with rice for another meal.

Sweet potato topped fish pie

This fish pie would make the perfect weekend meal for two. The sweet potato adds a lovely sweetness to the dish. 

Speedy chicken and leek casserole

A healthy casserole dish ready in 30 minutes - ideal if you've been out in the cold and need something to warm you up. 

Chicken & cherry tray bake

Cherries combine brilliantly with Chinese-inspired flavours in this easy-to-make, big-on-taste dish.

Giant cous cous, quinoa & mixed peppers salad

This oh-so-simple Middle Eastern-style dish is delicious served warm for a midweek main meal. Or if you've got friends coming over at the weekend you could make this as part of a spread. We're thinking a nice Moroccan chicken would go down a treat. 

Chilli chicken & mixed vegetable stir-fry

All the fresh, aromatic flavours of a classic stir-fry – straight from the freezer.

Lean turkey meatballs

Using lean turkey mince instead of the standard beef mince is the best way to reduce fat in this dish. If you don't want spaghetti you could try making your own courgetti by spiralising a couple of courgettes.
