Eat Well This Week: 7 Quick and Healthy Dishes You Can Cook in a Frying Pan

27 May 2016

Fried foods don’t have to be fatty foods and we’ve got the recipes to prove it!

Here are 7 different dishes that are low on fat, high on flavour and perhaps best of all, quick and easy to cook in a frying pan so you can enjoy delicious, healthy, home-cooked meals every day of the week:

Monday: Kung Pao Chicken

This recipe from Lavender and Lovage may be described as a dish suitable for anyone following a calorie-controlled diet but in truth, it’s perfect for anyone who just loves the fresh flavours and delicate aromas of Asian cuisine.

With less than 30 minutes from pan to plate it makes the perfect Monday night dinner.

Tuesday: Breakfast Scramble

In the case of this pan-fried scramble recipe from MollyBHealthy, breakfast is a dish best served hot or cold at any time of day! 

This clever little recipe comes with a pick and mix range of ingredients that all work together, giving you the freedom to choose the ones you like and cook as much or as little as you need.


Wednesday: ShakShuka, Spicy Tomato Baked Eggs

This easy recipe from Foodie Quine makes a rich, hearty and comforting meal.

With tender baby potatoes, a smoky, spicy, tomato sauce and perfectly set creamy egg yolks, it’s ideal for family dinners or mid-week get-togethers with friends.

Serve in the pan along with crusty bread (or soldiers for dipping if you prefer!) and a leafy green salad.

Thursday: Courgette Pasta with Garlic, Tomatoes and Basil

This super-simple recipe by From the Healthy Heart is packed with flavour and makes a perfect main dish or side for lean meats. 

It’s fresh, light, healthy, cheap and ready in minutes…need we say more?

Friday: Chinese BBQ Chicken

At the end of a long week, what could be nicer than a takeaway dinner from your local Chinese restaurant?

How about this: a meal with all the authentic flavours you’d expect from a professional kitchen but with half the fat, at half the cost, that’s on the table in half the time.

This delicious chicken recipe from Right Up My Street includes ready-made Blue Dragon sauces so you can enjoy all the complex flavours of Chinese cuisine with none of the hassle.

Saturday: Vegan, Cinnamon, Raisin and Oat Pancakes

If Friday nights were made for takeaway-style Chinese dinners then Saturday mornings were made for lazy, tasty breakfasts.

This pancake recipe from Naturally Meghan makes a really healthy breakfast feel like a cheeky weekend treat.

They’re naturally sweet, filling, good for you and smell completely delicious while they’re cooking. Serve with fresh fruit and good coffee.


Sunday: Potato and Tomato Hash with Nduja Onions

This recipe from Eat Like a Girl makes the perfect Sunday brunch. According to the cooking instructions it works best with slowly  caramelised red onions but we think it works even better after a really long lie-in, after all, it is Sunday, you deserve it!

Get up late and take your time over this healthy, tasty, midday meal.

From frying pans to chopping boards, you can find a huge selection of Russell Hobbs cookware and accessories that make it easy to cook any kind of meal, online or instore at B&M.
