What We're Cooking This Week

Five delicious recipes to get you through the week.


It's the start of a new week which means it's time to figure out what to cook.

Our food cravings have inspired this list, based on recipes we've been posting on the site lately. The five dishes below are ones we know we'll cook again and again, so try them out with us and let us know what you think!

Aubergine curry with turmeric cauliflower rice

Donal Skehan's recipes are always full of flavour, but we're currently obsessed with this aubergine curry dish. It's perfect for warming yourself up on a colder evening and is super quick to make, which is a bonus in our book. Plus, if you double up the recipe, you'll have plenty of leftovers which will work perfectly for lunch throughout the week. Try it out here

Tamil 'gobhi' salad

Spice king Arun Kapil shared this veggie recipe with us last week and we've been thinking about it ever since. We love how cauliflower has had a renaissance of popularity over the past few years and with recipes like this, we think it will stay as a staple in our diets forever. Get the recipe here.

Broccoli rabe and squash lasagne

This recipe from Avoca is a real crowd-pleaser and if you're trying to cut down on your meat intake, then you'll definitely want to try it out. The béchamel gives the broccoli a very luxurious feel, making the whole meal feel very moreish and ensuring that you won't even notice the absence of beef. Try it out here.

Ultimate spaghetti carbonara

Quick, easy and delicious, spaghetti carbonara is a classic. While some recipes call for cream, the sauce in a true Italian carbonara only uses eggs, which is why this recipe is one of our absolute favourites. It's so simple to pull together, so it's a great option for a midweek dinner. Get the recipe here

Queen of puddings 

Edward Hayden knows his way around a dessert and this really is one of his best. Queen of puddings is a classic dish and this recipe makes it very easy to tackle. Try using cake crumbs instead of breadcrumbs to add some extra sweetness – it's a great way to use the offcuts from cakes or cupcakes. Get the recipe here
