Batch-cooking

My top 3 batch cook recipes to make your kitchen life even simpler  💙

Batch cooking can help you save money on your food shop: buying in bulk is cheaper than buying small amounts and it gives you the gift of time in your busy schedule and ensures that you always have access to healthy home-cooked dinners. 

Many of my recipes are suitable for batch-cooking and making double of something doesn’t double the time or the effort. 

Home-cooking is a more nutritious and healthier way to enjoy meals, but sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day! 

I am a big fan of prepping a couple of meals on a Sunday – knowing they are ready and waiting in the fridge makes my after-work rush so much easier! 

And I also like a bit of batch-cooking: having some meals in the freezer means that I can provide a quality home-cooked dinner when I am short of time (or out for the evening!)   

To make your batch cooking journey even easier, I have unlocked three of my favourite recipes for you to try!

Sausage casserole – You can make this with pork or veggie sausages (or a mixture of the two!) Batch cook, cool and freeze. Defrost thoroughly before reheating. 

Cottage pie – I like to freeze in individual containers so that I have a stash of ‘just in case’ meals for one!  Once defrosted, I pop them in the oven until the top is browned and the filling is bubbling.

Red lentil bolognaise – batch cook and freeze in portions.  When you need a quick, healthy meal you just need to defrost and reheat the sauce and cook your pasta of choice. 

Ps: I also batch cook for the dogs 💙 The photo is of the slow cooker chicken stock that they have on their breakfast!!
