TV chefs have a lot to answer for. Jamie Oliver and his saucepan-waving friends have inadvertently obliged all men to knock up exotic, complicated meals in minutes. We have the answer to all this drizzle-plated madness: simple meals that require nothing more than readily available ingredients and a pot. Oh, and you to mix them all together.
That doesn’t necessarily mean they’re quick. Some of these meals take a while to cook, and one or two may be best left for the weekend, but the preparation takes less time than you might spend slumped in front of a pointless cookery programme. Click the links below for the recipes.
