From fragrant fish curries to saucy enchiladas, scroll on to discover five of our favourite midweek dinners that can be whipped up from the freezer drawer without a fuss.
Cod and sweet potato thai curry
beef and mixed pepper goulash
A goulash is a Hungarian-style stew seasoned with paprika and sweetened with slowly braised peppers. We've used frozen peppers in this version to minimise prep, making it a brilliant midweek meal. Serve with super speedy frozen vegetable rice for hearty and filling family dinner.
Colcannon cakes with poached egg
Butternut squash and spinach lasagne
Butternut squash may be delicious, but it's also a pain to peel. A bag of frozen, prepared chunks not only save time on prep, but also add an earthy sweetness and heartiness to this meat-free take on the Italian classic. Serve with a fresh green salad and you've got yourself a practically perfect vegetarian supper. Zero effort, maximum reward. Yum.
This saucy Mexican-style dish uses frozen, pre-sliced onion and pepper, so there’s no peeling or chopping. What's more, the diced chicken breast can be cooked from frozen – it really couldn’t be easier!
