Meet Our Everyday Favourites: 10 Simple Meals The Whole Family Will Love!
We’re always looking for new ways to make dinnertime simple and fun for families and when we heard our customers wanted more classic family recipes on the menu we thought – great idea!
So we set ourselves a mission to create 10 hearty, reliable family meals that home cooks would be proud to plate up and kids would be excited to polish off.
First, we talked to families up and down the country, finding out which dinners had kids rushing to the table.
What we discovered (quite handily) was that the top 10 most popular family meals are already Gousto recipes (great start). Next, we took the recipes back to the kitchen, reduced prep time, added more veg and a special Gousto twist. Now each dish is even more wholesome and delicious with a big thumbs up from kids and parents.
We call the recipes our Everyday Favourites and they’re about to become your new go-to for clean plates and full bellies. From Spag Bol to Cottage Pie each comforting dish looks familiar but with a little touch of Gousto magic (and at least two of your five a day) to make them extra special. From chive crumbed baked fish to a dollop of onion marmalade in your gravy, the Gousto twists add a little extra yum to your favourite dinners.
The best part? From the 26th of February, Everyday Favourites will be on the menu every week. Which means you’ll have up to 40 recipes to choose from!
So whether you’re gearing up for a busy week of activities or you’re looking for a treat for Friday night, you can always rely on an Everyday Favourite to fill the hungriest tummy and satisfy the fussiest eater.
From our family to yours, enjoy!
Speedy Spag Bol
Need another reason to love spag bol? Probably not, but here’s one anyway: this one’s slurp-ready in 30 minutes. The Gousto twist is in the super speedy sauce powered by Tomato Frito for effortlessly rich flavour. And with a good grating of cheddar, a touch of fresh basil, and 2 of your 5-a-day, you’re good to go.
Extra Special Bangers n’ Mash
Juicy sausages. Creamy mash. It’s a heavenly partnership we all know and love. But the Gousto twist is a dreamy dollop of onion marmalade to give your gravy a rich new tang. Once you taste it you’ll wonder how you ever did without. And with green beans & oven-roasted carrots, you’ve got two of your five a day!
Fiesta Chicken Fajitas
We’re all about giving you cooking hacks. These 2 of your 5-a-day chicken fajitas will have you blending your own spice for a meal the whole family will adore. Mix up with chicken and fresh veg then wrap in tortillas and scoff. Delicioso!
Feel Good Fish n’ Chips
Fish and chips aren’t just for Friday – you’ll want to eat ours every night! Do away with grease soaked newspaper and coat your fish in chive crumbs instead, then bake instead of frying for a healthy and delicious Gousto twist that doesn’t skimp on crunch factor. On the table in just 30 minutes and 2 of your 5-a-day.
Ready to Roast Chicken
Who says you can’t have a weeknight roast? Tender chicken breast, crispy potatoes, carrots and even stuffing – it’s a tray bake sensation. Drench with rich gravy and you’re onto a winner. Even better? It’s on the table in just 40 minutes and includes 2 of your 5-a-day.
Big Flavour Beef Lasagne
When was the last time anyone said no to lasagne? A real crowd pleaser, whether it’s fresh out the oven or tomorrow’s packed lunch. Henderson’s Relish gives ours its deep flavour, soaked up by its 3 veg filling. Served with a fresh salad on the side, it’s 3 of your 5-a-day.
Comforting Cottage Pie
The goodness of our cottage pie lies beneath its smooth, cheesy mash topping. Pan fried beef mince soaks in deeply rich stock, ramping up in flavour before you scoop it out and serve with vibrantly green broccoli.
Spicy-As-You-Like Chilli Con Carne
Our hunger busting, 3 of your 5-a-day Chilli comes with a spice blend you’ll make yourself, so you can dial up the heat depending on taste. On the table in 30 minutes, you’ll be devouring it quick-time.
Easy Chicken Curry
This mild chicken curry packs in flavour, no punches needed. Mild isn’t a byword for boring, its creamy sauce pairs perfectly with fragrant turmeric and sultana rice for a family-pleasing treat that has 2 of your 5-a-day.
3 Cheese, Veg-Packed Pasta Bake
Pack your pasta sauce with courgette before layering up with not one, but three cheeses: cheddar, mozzarella and grated Italian hard for that bit of tang. With 2 of your 5-a-day, this tasty, wholesome bake is the perfect midweeker!
