5-ingredient meals to whip up

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. 


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.

Mediterranean stuffed peppers

A pack of frozen mixed vegetables, which includes aubergines, tomatoes and peppers, is a handy time-saver in this tasty, colourful dish inspired by flavours of the Med. 

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.
