Cooking dinner doesn't have to be a drag! Here at Good & Fugly, we're all about cooking easy, nutritious and delicious meals that don't have to take half the day to make. On top of that, we're big on learning how to use as much of veg we can to avoid waste.
If you're looking for dinner inspiration, we have five crackers that we're sure you're going to love.
1. GINGER & VEGGIE STIR FRY
We love this dish for its ease, convenience and overall delicious factor. The best part is you can edit this recipe to include the veggies that are in your fridge. Basically, anything goes with stir fry, so don't be afraid to add more or fewer veggies! Ginger is a powerhouse of an ingredient that will often be included in our veggies boxes. It's also full of nutrients and can help boost the immune system.
2. MOUSSAKA WITH A KALE TWIST
A Greek classic, moussaka is a hearty, delicious dish that won't disappoint. Often made with beef as well, this recipe has lamb, but you can use either or remove the meat completely to make this dish vegetarian. We've also added kale for extra tastiness and deliciousness. This is a great family dish that will have the family smiling.
3. POTAGER PIE WITH SWEET POTATO MASH
Who doesn't love a golden, crispy potato dish? This is a tummy-warming, crowd pleaser that will have everyone asking for seconds. If you don't have enough sweet potatoes, substitute with potatoes. Serve with a green salad and you'll have a great meal ready to enjoy.
4. THAI KHOLRABI SALAD
Raw kohlrabi is crunchy, juicy and crispy, which makes it work well in salads and slaws. This dish is fresh, and delicious and will have your taste buds dancing. You can eat it on its own or make it as a side dish to a simple curry with rice.
5. BABY BOK CHOY NOODLE SOUP
Baby bok choy noodle soup is a lovely light dish that you will have on the table in twenty minutes. We love bok choy, and you will often find it in your Good & Fugly box. Easy to prepare and make, this soup is not only packed with flavour but also nutrients.
To make dinner time even easier, we suggest planning ahead. Most meals can be prepped ahead of time. This could include chopping your veg and storing in the fridge or even par-cooking - which is when you partially cook some of the ingredients. You can learn more about par-cooking and how to do it here. Prepping your meal will make cooking day that much easier. If you have done this before, why not try it out?
We have many more recipes you can check out in our library. All recipes have been designed by our Chief Nutrition Officer, Clinical Nutritionist Cailie Ford.
