Stay cosy out there
1. Roast Cauliflower Curry
There’s no butter and no chicken in our Butter Chicken Curry Sauce, so it’s perfect for everyone! Choose your veggies or protein of choice, simmer and serve. Click here for our Roast Cauliflower Curry recipe.
2. One-pot Veggie Lasagne
For this riff on a family staple, we used The Instant Pot Duo Crisp™ + Air Fryer. Don’t fret if you don’t have your hands on this wonder appliance yet! We’ve included conventional cooking instructions too and, trust us, it tastes as good as it looks. Here is the recipe.
3. Quick & Easy Melanzane Parmigiana
Is the year going as fast as summer lightning? You might need this: our fuss-free take on the classic Melanzane Parmigiana. Made using our ready-to-roll Pesto Princess Fresh Tomato Sauce, it works brilliantly for a family supper or served to guests. Find the recipe here.
4. Hake with Harissa & Coconut Cream
Keen to cook something a little different this weekend? Give this recipe for fresh hake with Pesto Princess Harissa and coconut cream a try.
5. Seafood Curry
The ingredient list of this seafood curry is to inspire you. Use as much or as little fresh seafood as you like, all we can say is Mother City Fish makes it easy! And they stock our full Pesto Princess range too, including the Pesto Princess Cape Malay Curry Sauce we used to make this recipe.
6. Slow-Cooked Lamb with Harissa & Preserved Lemon
This dish can be prepared far in advance so you won’t miss out on a single conversation while it cooks. Quite possibly the hero of our winter line-up. Here it is.
7. Wonderbag Stew with Zucchini Mash
One of my favourite things to do on a cold day is to cook a delicious stew with a little help from my Wonderbag®. I do all the prep in the morning and leave the stew in the Wonderbag® for the day. When I get home… ta-daaaa… supper is ready! Here is the recipe.
8. Plant-Powered Pasta Bake
If you, like me, are constantly searching for great vegan (and super easy) recipes, then this one’s a keeper
Use our Pesto Princess Fresh Tomato Soup as a base (and rest easy knowing it’s 100% plant-based, with no preservatives, thickeners or colourants), and you’ll be serving up this piping hot dish of comfort in under an hour. Here’s the recipe.
9. Quick Two-Bean Chilli
Chilli con Carne without the meat! The best bit about this recipe? Cook up a big batch of these spicy beans and use them again tomorrow in the form of Buddha bowl or wrap. Here is the recipe.
10. Soup, Soup & Soup
When you just don’t feel like cooking but need a wholesome supper? Soup is the answer. Stash the full range of our Pesto Princess soups in your freezer and you’ll never be more than a few minutes away from a good meal. Serve with crispy chickpeas, warm bread and butter or a cheese toastie.
