Winter weekday warmer recipes

Winter weekday warmer recipes

The winter chill has arrived, and it can be tempting to trade the kitchen for the takeout menu. We want our winter meals to be hearty, but weekday recipes don’t have to be difficult or time-consuming. These 4 winter warmer recipes will have a steamy, scrumptious dinner on the table in less time than you might think.

Speedy spaghetti and meatballs with a herb flourish
Weekdays can be rushed, and sometimes it feels like a juggling act to make a meal that’s both hearty and healthy. This speedy spaghetti recipe sneaks in a dose of baby spinach and takes less than 30 minutes to prep and cook.

Simply brown the meatballs, add pasta sauce and water, and boil the spaghetti in salted water until al dente.

TIP: add herbs like oregano to your meatball mixture for an extra zing!

Add the baby spinach to your sauce and meatballs, tossing to combine and allowing the spinach to wilt. Toss your spaghetti and sauce together, add a sprinkle of parmesan, and you have a weeknight winner.

Beef dumplings with soy and sesame broth
Nothing warms the soul like a fragrant broth. This beef dumplings and broth recipe takes only 30 minutes from prep to plate, making it ideal for even the busiest of weeknights.

Start with your broth. Combine the aromatic ingredients, like sliced ginger, garlic, and sesame oil, with 2 litres of water and 2 chicken stock cubes. After you’ve simmered and strained your broth, add your mushrooms, water chestnuts, bok choy, and beef dim sims.

TIP: Serve this soup with chilli for a midweek kick. Chilli is also a natural way to fight off the flu!

Winter salmon salad
If you think salad can’t warm up your winter, think again. This winter salmon salad recipe combines healthy, delicious produce like brussel sprouts, fennel, broccoli and potato to create a salad that’s not only fresh but also filling. Bake your veggies and herbs before cooking the salmon on the stovetop, roughly flaking it when it’s cooked through.

To finish, mix vinegar, oil and seasoning for a tangy dressing that elevates your entire dish.

Cauliflower cheesy bake
The perfect weeknight meal is one you can set and forget. This cauliflower cheesy bake recipe ticks all the boxes, with cauliflower and broccoli making it healthier than other cheesy bakes.

Just cook the macaroni and bacon, create the cheesy sauce, and add ingredients together before popping the dish into the oven.

TIP: Spend time making this on the weekend so you can easily re-heat it on a busy weeknight.
