Our recipes mean you can eat better by rustling up homemade versions of your fast-food faves. So get everyone together, pick a DVD to watch and tuck in... 

Fish and chips

Double-frying is the secret to chip perfection! Lager makes the fish batter crisp and fluffy, while soy sauce gives it a lovely golden colour and savoury taste. Perfect fish and chips!

Fish and chips

 

Mediterranean calzone with superstar sides

No knives and forks are required with this genius creation - filled with veg, mozzarella and Parmesan and served with a chive dip, simple salsa and sweet potato wedges, it's ideal for a laid-back movie night.

Aloo Gobi

Fancy a lighter curry night in? This veg-packed aloo gobi is full of traditional Indian spices, and low in fat, sugar and salt. Served with naan bread and chopped fresh chilli, this is a sure-fire winner on taste and waist. 

 

Speedy katsu chicken with a crunchy salad 

Japanese-style crispy chicken in a rich, fruity mild curry sauce - you can't go wrong with this flavour-packed classic. And, it can be on your plate within 30 mins so it's speedy to make too. 

Pad Thai

If you're not a fan of hot and spicy food, this is a delicious mild version of the street-food classic with crunchy vegetables and rice noodles. If you're making pad Thai for the kids you can skip the peanuts. For grown-ups you can add some sweet chilli sauce.

 

Tender beef biryani

A hearty and warming one-pot curry with rice is just the thing you need on any Friday night. We've used beef in this dish but you could swap it out for chicken or lamb if you wish. 

Sweet and sour pork

The tangy sauce of sweet pineapple and tart vinegar is perfect with the succulent battered pork. Serve with fluffy rice, and a few prawn crackers, if you fancy.

 

Sizzling beef with egg-fried rice and veg spring rolls 

Tender meat, crunchy veg and Chinese-inspired flavours with a kick of gentle chilli heat sounds like the perfect 'fakaway' to us. 

Veggie pizza

Bursting with sunshine flavours to cheer up a winter weekend, this roasted vegetable pizza is ideal for your TV dinner. You could mix up the toppings with whatever you have in the fridge.

Portuguese-style piri piri roast chicken with corn and coleslaw 

This is our spicy, saucy take on a modern fast-food favourite. We've used our ready pre-made sauce, so making this piri piri roast chicken dish really couldn't be easier. Simply marinate the chicken in the sauce, griddle your sweetcorn and throw the coleslaw together. Simples!
