Quick, Hearty & Healthy Meals For Your Family
Sometimes cooking for the whole family can be a task and a half. Luckily we’ve got together some of the best, healthy and quick recipes so you don’t have to worry about time whilst juggling the little ones!

slow cooker chicken casserole

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 4 to 7 hours

For those days you know you won’t have time when you bring the kids in from school, it’s always easy to get a slow cooker dish on the go. It might mean you have to wake up a little earlier than normal but it also means that when you come in after your day at work, you don’t have to worry about making the family their tea. This recipe is great if you want to pack in the meat and veg without it tasting really dry and tasteless. Kids absolutely love it and the recipe is so simple you won’t be left wondering what you’re all eating. Even though this recipe might have some veg that you and your little ones aren’t fond of you can mix it up and change it as much as you like. After all, you’re the ones who are going to be eating it!

Bolognese

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes

The traditional classic, this tasty dish is sure to make the whole family's mouths water at the sight of the tomato pasta on the dish. It takes hardly any time to prepare this dish and when it's all ready, all you need to do is let it simmer for around 40 minutes. You could even add different meat into it, who says you’ve just got to have mince meat? No one is subjecting you to it, if you want chicken or lamb bolognese then no ones going to stop you!

Veggie Bolognese

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes

A great twist on the classic is to have no meat in but more bulky vegetables. Even if you're not into veggies in your household sometimes it’s nice for a change. This recipe adds mushrooms and onions to pad out the dish but I always find it still tastes amazing just as it is without the meat. You really can’t beat a lovely tomato pasta. Let’s be real here, no little one is going to deny a taste of it!
