With the addition of just a few store cupboard staples or a handful of fresh ingredients picked up on your way home, Batch But Better shows how easy it is to transform one meal into three – saving you time and money and reducing waste.
For every recipe cooked from scratch, Lizzie provides ideas for two more fuss-free dishes. Roast aubergine with tomatoes transforms into a pasta bake and mini calzones. A supper of lamb koftes becomes a comforting moussaka as well as spiced lamb and hummus wraps. Deliciously sticky short ribs cooked at the weekend give you a fresh and feisty Thai beef salad and Vietnamese summer rolls in the days after.
From vegetable-based dishes to fish, meat and also desserts, this book will not only help you save time in the kitchen, spend less and avoid waste, but also cook simple, good-for-you meals that you really want to eat.
