Quick Meals for Hassle-Free Dinners

Quick Meal Ideas and Tips

Weeknight dinners should be hassle-free so you can spend less time preparing your food and more time enjoying the meals with your loved ones. A HelloFresh food box cuts out the need to plan and shop for dinner, and our pre-portioned ingredients and easy-to-follow, quick recipes save you time too. With these three time-saving kitchen hacks from Senior Recipe Development Manager, Mimi Morley, you’ll be whipping up even our quick meals in record time.

Five Time-Saving Hacks for Quick Meals

Chop finely When meal prepping, the smaller the cut, the shorter the cooking time. Slice vegetables and meat into smaller chunks to reduce the time needed to cook through.
Learn to multitask Plan your quick recipes in a way that allows you to multitask. For example, while one ingredient is sautéing, you can be chopping the next one. Be mindful of cooking times and temperatures to ensure that everything finishes at the same time.
Pre-boil water in the kettle When cooking rice, pasta or boiled veggies, be sure to boil the cooking water in the kettle first. Cold water can take 10-15 minutes to bring to a boil on the stove, but a kettle will cut down the boiling time to only a few minutes, making your quick recipe even quicker!
Organise your workspace Keeping your kitchen and workspace tidy and organised will help you move efficiently between tasks without wasting time searching for utensils or cleaning up clutter.
Quickly thicken any sauce If your sauce is too watery and you don’t have time to boil it down, simply add a lasagne sheet to the pot. The lasagne will soak up the water while releasing starch into the sauce, causing it to thicken even more. Remove the pasta sheet from the sauce once it’s reached the desired thickness.
Adopt these time-saving hacks and you’ll be preparing quick dinners before you know it. If you’ve got a little more time on your hands, why not take a look at our recipe hub for hundreds of dinner ideas to try today!
