Mid-week dinner delights: five easy meals to keep you full until Friday

Every week we all fall into the pit-hole of having pretty much little-to-no food in the house – and then having a BIG craving for a chipper or Chinese. 

Do not cave in!

Here, SHEmazing! has simple – yet mouth-watering – dishes for you to try at home.

From a caramelised onion tart to sautéed shrimp, something (or everything) here will take your fancy.


Monday: Croque madames with tomato and rosemary ham

The croque madame is the most beautiful lady you will ever meet. Full of hearty goodness and ready in less than half an hour, this meal will certainly set you up for the week. 


Tuesday: Caramelised onion tart with goats cheese and thyme

This super fancy tart is also super easy to make. Serve it warm or at room temperature to get a delicious crisp off the pastry. Bonus points for being in the oven for only ten minutes!


Wednesday: Prosciutto-wrapped chicken breasts with broccoli rabe pesto

We all know wrapping prosciutto around chicken is NEVER a bad idea, but teaming it with broccoli rabe pesto and some fresh lemons will certainly have your taste buds tingling


Thursday: Sautéed shrimp with lemon-parsley spread and couscous

A lemony, buttery herb spread is the perfect partner for shrimp. Couscous and green beans add a burst of freshness to the dish, all the while taking only 25 minutes from start to finish.


Friday: Beef and broccoli with red peppers

The typical take-out order has nothing on the homemade version. Succulent and juicy, this meal is perfect for a Friday night feast with friends.
