As much as I enjoy cooking and trying out new and exciting things in the kitchen, there are inevitably the evenings when I just really can’t be bothered to slave over a hot stove.
Sometimes, you just want dinner on the table without any fuss, and on these occasions, you need some quick and easy Slimming World recipes up your sleeve to help you to stay on plan.
If you’re looking for a dinner in a hurry (and without too much washing up), I’ve got you covered. Here are some of my favourite choices for those times when there just aren’t enough hours in the day…
I’ve been known to have this cheesy Marmite hash for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Not all on the same day, but my point is that it’s really versatile and it’s a wonderful option to have in your personal recipe book if you lead a busy lifestyle. The dippy egg makes it a real treat, and you can throw any leftover veggies that need using up.
Thanks to a few special ingredients that do all the lifting for you, these steak bakes are the easiest that you’ll ever make!
They take just over half an hour, and they’re perfect when served with chips and peas. These are likely to become a family favourite that you’ll hear requests for time and time again.
If you love fajitas, you’ll love this twist on the Mexican favourite that takes only half an hour.
The addition of quark makes it deliciously creamy. If you’ve never tried quark before and you’re not too sure how you feel about it, do give it a go. It can be a complete revelation when it comes to creating creamy sauces for savoury dishes without tons of unnecessary calories and Syns.
This recipe is the ideal choice when you’re in the mood for Nando’s but you’re committed to staying on plan!
Baking the skewers in the oven keeps the meat super tender and juicy, and you can select your side dishes based on your own personal favourites. Some options include salad, corn on the cob, chips, and spicy rice.
Sausage rolls don’t have to be off the menu when you’re following Slimming World! This recipe uses real pastry and is a good option when you’re looking for comfort food.
These tuna and sweetcorn fishcakes use store cupboard essentials, so they’re a fabulous option to have in your culinary repertoire for the days when you know you need to visit the supermarket but just don’t have the time.
They can be served for lunch or dinner, and a wedge of fresh lemon will really make the flavours sing. They’re one of my go-to choices when it comes to quick and easy Slimming World recipes.
You could have this creamy, spicy pasta dish on the table and ready to serve in less than half an hour, and it’s a super simple recipe that even the most reluctant of home cooks can master.
Make an extra portion and have it for lunch the next day, with a side salad.
This slimming friendly coronation chicken recipe takes just five minutes to prepare, and it’s a great option for filling sandwiches or topping jacket potatoes and salads.
Try making a batch of it, and you could have your lunches sorted for the coming days.
Chilli con carne is one of my all-time favourite easy Slimming World recipes, and I make it every few weeks.
It freezes really well if you like to batch cook, and you can take a portion into work for lunch the next day if you have access to a microwave.
Fanta chicken tastes just like sweet and sour, and is a lovely choice for when you’re thinking about ordering a Chinese takeaway! It might sound like a bit of a bizarre recipe, but I promise you that you’ll be very pleasantly surprised.
Serve it with fluffy rice, or chips and salad.
If you’ve got half an hour to spare on a busy weeknight, you can serve up this satisfying cheeseburger pasta bowl.
Its bold and punchy flavours make it feel like a real treat, though it’s totally compatible with the Slimming World plan. Remember that a third of your plate should consist of speedy veggies, so you might want to serve it with a leafy green salad.
This minced beef keema curry is really easy to make when you need easy Slimming World recipes, and it doesn’t require any fancy or unusual ingredients.
Pizza doesn’t have to be off the menu whilst you’re on your Slimming World journey. These calzones are made using a Weight Watchers wrap, and they make a great lunch or dinner option.
Feel free to shake up the fillings depending on what you have in your fridge.
This one-pan Chinese chicken fried rice is one of the simplest dinners that you’ll ever make, but it certainly doesn’t compromise on taste.
When only comfort food will do, this chicken supreme recipe ticks all the right boxes. It takes just 30 minutes as well, so it’s quick and easy enough to serve during the week when you’re short on time.
