Smoked salmon risotto with sugar snap peas

A speedy risotto will always get a thumbs up from us. Though many Italians will refuse fish and cheese in the same dish, we’re risking it in this recipe because we believe parmesan is a necessary addition to, well, everything!

Simple Teriyaki prawn stir-fry with snow peas and cashews

Nothing says speedy quite like a stir-fry, and this Teriyaki dish packs in plenty of flavour and is ready in just 20 minutes. The best news? It’s a great low-calorie option, too (with less than 400 calories per serving.) A must-try!

Refried bean burrito bowl

This plant-based, deconstructed burrito is a one of our all-time favourite midweek feasts. In true Mexican style, we’ve added plenty of heat to this dish, so watch out for the chipotle powder and generous helping of fiery salsa if you’re afraid of the spice!
