Make a meal of it

Do you ever struggle for meal ideas, wishing you didn’t have to go shopping? Then check out our #makeamealofit dishes – they could save you a trip out by using ingredients already in the fridge, freezer or store cupboard. Our recipes are cheap, quick and easy but also help reduce food waste, thereby saving you money. In fact, research has found that the average family could save £60 a month* if they reduced their food waste.

There are six recipes to choose from – check out the videos below, or click on the link below each one for a downloadable recipe.



These recipes were taken from the North London Food Lovers’ Cookbook, a collection of recipes, donated to us by north Londoners, which help use up leftover or odd ingredients. You can also download each of the recipes here:
