I have got something easy and fun for you today! We have a little tradition in our house called “Pizza Fridays”. It’s a treat to look forward to at the end of the school and work week and, depending on what is on the schedule that day, I tend to whip up a quick pizza for the kids to have for supper. Occasionally I will make a proper yeast dough and tomato sauce from scratch for the whole family to enjoy, but it is usually something I can put together pronto like this tortilla pizza or today’s recipe which uses scone dough as its base.

This incredible lamb recipe comes from one of my favourite cookbooks, “Jamie’s 30 minute meals” by Jamie Oliver. It was a Christmas present from my lovely sister many years ago and I have used it often when I need week night supper inspiration. All of the recipes I have tried so far have worked really well but this easy lamb and vegetable platter really impressed me. It’s a simple recipe when you look it but it tastes incredible, and best of all you can have this gorgeous platter of food (it’s a feast, let’s be honest) in no time at all!

It is time for another “dinner in a flash” recipe – we love those right? And this one will also, I think, be met with nods of approval from the banting crowd. This beef and veggie stir fry is a very simple but delicious meal that works well for supper or lunch. (Or both if you have leftovers.) I say simple because I usually prepare my stir fries with a homemade sauce, or at the very least a splash of soy sauce but in this recipe I have simply used a couple of aromatics to give the dish its tasty flavour with the added bonus of making it sugar free.

Quick is the name of the game today and this fabulously delicious dinner will be on the table in thirty minutes, making it a week night winner! It is an adaptation of this chicken dish and I love the addition of crunchy toasted cashews and jasmine rice cooked in coconut milk.

We love a good pasta dish in our house, and this is one of my go-to recipes for a quick and delicious week night meal. The sauce is ready in under thirty minutes and can even be made ahead of time and reheated. And I have to say it again – it is so tasty!

I so enjoyed putting today’s post together, and I am not going to tell you how many of these tortilla pizzas I have baked and tasted over the last two weeks. (Clue: a good few!) All in the name of research of course, and to make very very sure that this recipe is just right for you guys of course!

It has been a few weeks since the last “dinner in a flash” recipe post, and I hope you will agree that this one is a goody! This last week has been a whirlwind of appointments, errands and social get-togethers… nothing out of the ordinary now that I think about it! I’m sure most of you can relate to that feeling of being run off your feet, so, flag this recipe because it is perfect for those evenings when, after a crazy day, you want to enjoy a good home cooked meal but with minimal effort. And by minimal I mean you can have this dish on the table in less than twenty minutes – winning!
