Having trouble thinking of what to cook at the moment? We’ve all been there, and it’s never a good feeling! Don’t worry though; you’re not the first to have this problem, and there is help available.
A great way to buck this trend is to find some fantastic new recipes so you can change up your routine, so we’ve compiled a list of some great recipes that we think you’ll love.
Slow Cooked Ribs
The thing with the best meats is that you can cook them in almost any way and they’ll still taste delicious! It’s also really easy to prepare your ingredients and shove them in the slow cooker for a day, so why not consider slow cooking some beef ribs for your meal tomorrow evening?
French Onion Soup
You really can’t go wrong with onion soup, especially when it’s cooked in that classic French style with garlic croutons and some cheese melted over the top. If you’re looking for something to warm you up on a cold winter’s evening, you can do a lot worse.
Brisket is an absolutely brilliant way to cook beef; the tenderness of it is to die for, and the flavour is fantastic. Cook it with some onions and herbs to start off with, but you can also try cooking it in beer or wine to add even more flavour into the mix.
Lasagne is an absolutely fantastic meal for both casual and serious foodies. There’s something so brilliant about the creamy cheese and mince combination layered on sheets of pasta. If you don’t already have lasagne in your repertoire, then it’s well worth adding to it.
Can’t be bothered with a load of washing up? Then you’ll love the idea of a pot roast! Apart from part boiling the potatoes, you can make the entire meal entirely in one pot. You can even put this one in the slow cooker if you don’t mind the wait.
If you’re looking for filling alternatives to meat that taste delicious, then getting some large mushrooms and dousing them with garlic butter might just be the next new craze for you! Try serving them with wholegrain rice and salad to make them a meal.
Making bread can be a complete pain, especially when you consider the manual labour required to knead the dough, which is why focaccia rolls are the next best thing. They don’t require any heavy kneading, and you can have them ready in a fraction of the time of homemade bread. Try flavouring them with herbs like rosemary and thyme to make them a little more interesting.
Greek Pepper and Paprika Salad
Looking for something quick and delicious with a hint of Aegean? Then look no further than this salad! Chop your peppers, add some feta and some paprika, and you’re done! The perfect accompaniment to a selection of cold meats or a pizza.
Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
If you’re growing bored of your usual jacket potatoes, then an easy way to spice up the formula is by switching to sweet potatoes, which will add a whole new flavour to your meal. You can also change the stuffing from cheese and baked beans to black beans, onions, and sour cream to create something truly special.
This is perhaps the most customisable item on this list, as you can add any toppings you want! Our recommendations are to start with the classic cheese, sour cream, and jalapenos, but it’s worth experimenting with the likes of pickled onions, mince, and salted peanuts and seeing what you like.
