Cooking Frozen Food Week


Ice Texture


Five irresistible recipes to add variety to your week

It’s Monday night, it’s been a long day, you’ve got a hectic week ahead of you, and it’s time to cook dinner. In this situation do you; go for the tried and trusted routine of spag bol? The same thing you’ve cooked every Monday for the past few years. Or, do you try exploring a new and varied meal idea?

It’s a familiar predicament. And with busy family routines and schedules, time can be tight and ideas can be short when it comes to cooking a meal for the family. It’s easy to see why one in four adults cooks the same meal on the same day every week.

According to the recent survey the typical UK households’ week looks like this: Monday, spaghetti bolognese. Tuesday, chilli con carne. Wednesday, pork chops. Thursday, lasagne. Friday, casserole. Routine and familiarity is fine, but you can’t beat the adventure of trying out a new recipe and seeing the dish come together.

If you have your structured routines and schedules when it comes to your evening meal, why not try a few of our simple yet exciting meal ideas? Frozen ingredients allow you to only use the veg you need for that meal, and you don’t have to worry about a half-chopped pepper decaying in the fridge afterwards.

Fresh from the Freezer has come up with some great alternatives. Our suggested meals can add an extra dish or two to your repertoire and help brighten up the week.

You can find the recipes on our app as well, so you can quickly refer to your phone while you’re in the kitchen.
