5-ingredient meals that will take the fuss out of meal times

These tasty suppers can all be made using just five main ingredients* and minimal prep – so cooking a delicious meal has never been easier.

From old favourites like spag bol to a mouth-watering one-pot chicken stew, here's how to whip up some amazing dishes with minimal effort (and ingredients).

*Not including seasonings and store-cupboard ingredients, such as oil. 

something savoury

Garlic king prawn linguine 

This is succulent seafood dish is such a classic, and super quick to whip up for lunch or dinner. Be sure to keep a few frozen prawns in the freezer and some dried pasta in the cupboard and it will be easy as 1, 2, 3! Chef's tip: you can actually freeze your chillies and easily grate into any dish when needed!

sweet potato and bean quesadillas 

Spicy, cheesy and incredibly easy to make, weeknight suppers don't get much simpler than these sweet potato and bean quesadillas, which take a speedy 5 mins of prep time, plus only 20 mins to cook. Added bonus? They count as one of your 5-a-day. 

Sausage meatball spaghetti 

Spag bol always goes down a treat, and this sausage meatball dish gives it a tasty twist. It's rich with Italian-style flavours and spices and served with a sprinkling of grated cheese over the top. A sure-fire crowd pleaser.


Crispy potato beef casserole

Casseroles are always a comforting treat, especially when they're topped with crispy golden potatoes. Serve this crispy potato beef casserole with some fresh ready-prepped veggies. 

Chicken, bean and spinach stew 

Chorizo adds instant spice to this hearty meal which can be on the table in 35 minutes. We've served ours with crusty bread to help soak up all the tasty juices. 

Warm roast vegetable cous cous

Fresh and vibrant yet hearty, with sweet, gently spiced veg – this warm roast cous cous dish is a treat for the eyes and stomach! 

Looking for something sweet?

Nectarine and pistachio cheesecakes

Crunchy nuts and juicy fruit create these delicious little desserts. You really can't beat the crispy base and creamy centre of a proper cheesecake. Perfect for parties or a special something for date night.

kiwi eton mess

You can't get more British than an Eton Mess, perfect for picnics or Summer parties. Traditionally, an Eton Mess contains only strawberries, but we have given these a tropical twist with punchy kiwi. Yum!
