Five Time-Saving Hacks for Quick Dinners

Get Your Timings Right Cooking quickly is all about planning. For example, while one ingredient is frying or boiling you can prep and chop the next, ensuring that everything finishes at the same time.

Peeling Hacks Peeling can be the enemy of a quick recipe, but there are a few hacks that can shave off your prep time. The skin from garlic and shallots can be loosened by shaking in a jar, simply grab a jar with a lid and shake for around 30s to help loosen the skin. Tricky veg like butternut squash can be loosened in the microwave, simply pierce the skin with a fork and then pop in the microwave for three minutes. Make sure to cool before peeling!

Faster Cooking Ingredients cook faster when they have a smaller surface area. Whether it's baking veggies, sautéing onions, or softening butter, the smaller chunks the ingredients are cut into, the quicker they will cook.

Plan Ahead Planning your meals for the week keeps cooking as streamlined as possible, removing unnecessary stress from ingredients being missing keep your week organised. You can also double up on recipes to ensure you have lunch for the next day.
