Hamlyn QuickCook: Midweek Meals by Emma Jane Frost
Flexible recipes for busy cooks...For every dish there are three time-saving options. Simply choose a recipe, work out how much time you have, then cook the 30-, 20-, or 10-minute option! For many, cooking in the week is a chore: who enjoys defrosting chicken breasts and dashing out to buy stock cubes? The strain of having to produce something quickly after a long working day can lead to a reliance on unhealthy convenience foods, when our bodies are actually craving nutrients to fuel the busy week. Thanks to Hamlyn QuickCook: Midweek Meals, you can now create a tasty, wholesome, home-cooked meal in thirty minutes or less. Save on washing up with warming one-pot meals like Creamy chicken, gammon and leek pan-fry and Crispy pesto-baked cod, or feed friends delicious treats like Balsamic lamb steaks with parsnip and potato mash and Asparagus, aubergine, brie and tomato quiche. Enjoy all your favourite spicy dishes, from jambalaya to jalfrezi, and cook up a Mediterranean feast of Chicken Parmigiana or Greek chicken stifado. Watch your waistline with tasty healthy dishes like Oriental prawn and crab stir-fry and Lemon and parsley chicken skewers, or boost your energy levels with Falafels with beetroot salad and mint yogurt. Don't forget to save room for dessert: included are mouth-watering recipes for Chocolate melting middle puddings, Apple and peach marzipan slice, Soft raspberry meringues and Chocolate tiffin squares.
