Time Saving Recipes For The Run Up To Christmas


The run up to Christmas is always a busy time of year, often leaving us short on time and energy. By the time the evening rolls around, it may seem easier to heat up processed foods laden with sugar and fat – leaving us feeling worse than before we ate!

Below we have a selection of quick and easy main meals that you can rustle up in no time at all, leaving you free to get on with festive errands or simply put your feet up after a long day.  



Thai Chicken

Simple, fast and utterly delicious - this exotic recipe is a welcome change from the usual Christmas dishes we come to expect. Filling and satisfying, this meal is a sure winner with the whole family.


Fillet Steak with Cauliflower Mash

Such an easy and versatile recipe – you can swap the fillet for any cut of steak if that would be preferable. The cauliflower mash is a fantastic substitute for chips, leaving you full of energy and not bloated. Serve this dish with a green veg or generous side salad to make it well rounded. Delicious!


Thai Fish Cakes and Stir Fry Vegetables

Thai fish cakes are fantastic because they are a delicious and full of flavour but require minimal effort and time. The stir fry vegetables take a matter of minutes and as if by magic, you have a healthy, tasty and filling meal in no time!


Lentil and Sweet Potato Stew

A delicious meat free dish to tickle the tastebuds. For those meat eaters, it’s advised that we don’t consume meat every day of the week - so here is a filling and satisfying recipe to tempt you into doing just that! Not lacking in flavour or satisfaction, lentil and sweet potato stew is a winner in our book.
