Cuban Prawn Pasta

Mojo sauce (“moh-ho”) is the name of a variety of sauces that originated in the Canary Islands. Originally it was an olive oil based sauce with garlic, paprika, coriander leaf and lemon, orange and lime juices. The sauce, which emigrated with its people to the Caribbean, was adopted by Cubans and was made their own. It’s so versatile that it can be used on anything from marinating pork to making delicious dipping sauces. Give this "Cuban fusion" pasta a try!

Churrasco Halloumi Burger

A flavourful Portuguese-style marinade gives the halloumi a delicious glaze. We’ve paired this with some more-ish crispy potato wedges and a saffron and garlic aioli as a perfect accompaniment to the halloumi burger.

Chicken Katsu Curry

“Katsu” is a method of breadcrumbing in Japan and can be used on meat, fish and even vegetables. In Japan they use panko breadcrumbs which are made from bread without crusts and allows for a much lighter, crisp coating. Curry was introduced to Japan by the British when India was still a British colony. Their version and accompaniment to Katsu has become so popular across the country that it is now a national dish!

Potato Saag Curry

Here's a taste of what we believe to be one of the tastiest and most overlooked Northern Indian curries. It’s not as heavy as other curries as it's filled with nutritious veg and contains no cream, just a little bit of butter. It’s best enjoyed over Basmati rice with a dollop of yoghurt on top.

Recipe kit allergens: Celery.

Thai Basil Pork

A delicious dish which could be straight off a food stall in the streets of Bangkok. A quick stir-fry of mince of your choice with authentic Thai 7-Spice seasoning and a touch of heat and of course, a lot of fresh sweet basil. Make this your own by adjusting the lime juice and sugar to get the perfect balance.

Beef Massaman

A popular dish from Persian influence mixed with Thai flavours, this is a rich but mild curry with beef, potatoes and crushed peanuts in a tangy coconut sauce. We’ve captured the essence of this travellers’ favourite by prepping the tamarind and blitzing the lemongrass into our fragrant paste. A hearty curry for any night of the week.

Sausage & Fennel Pasta

For a mini-upgrade to the classic pasta-bake, we’ve added a little sophistication to this mid-week staple by tossing in some kale and creamy ricotta along with our aromatic blend of fennel seed, lemon peel, herbs, red onion and smoked sea salt. A simpler but stylish one-pot dish for the SimplyCook range.

Iranian Vegetable Stew

Our healthy and hearty spiced stew packed with potatoes, butternut squash, tomatoes and spinach. The key to this dish is the Ras El Hanout – a perfect blend of ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, cumin and allspice. The mushroom stock and tomato paste add a depth of flavour. Finish it off with some sweet cranberries and creamy Greek yoghurt.

Murgh Kari

A real home-style creamy curry filled with the warmth of classic Gujarati spices.

Now we've made a quick style curry that you can whip up on weeknights too.


A Korean stir fried rice dish – the freshness of the cabbage and spring onion works wonderfully with the slightly crispy and sticky spicy rice. The real stars are the pots with chilli and savoury flavours from our miso and black bean pastes. The runny yolk from the egg stirred through complete this dish.

Spinach & Paneer Curry

Sichuan Dan Dan Noodles

Sichuan Dan Dan Noodles was named after the pole that the walking street vendors carried (dandan) when selling this dish with two baskets of noodles and sauce attached at either end in Chengdu. Rather than the traditional broth style dish, ours is more like the American Chinese version of Dandan noodles where tender boiled egg noodles are topped with crispy pork with a smoky and spicy chilli oil drizzle.

Recipe kit allergens: Soy.

Japanese Seared Steak

Yakiniku is the Japanese term for meats grilled over a flame, their style of BBQ. Our savoury rub featuring umami flavours makes for the perfect steak along with Kinoko Gohan, a steamed rice dish with shiitake mushrooms, seasoned with Japanese 7- spice mix, shichimi togarashi. A buttery miso sauce drizzle finishes the dish.

Recipe kit allergens: Mustard, Milk.

Goan Cauliflower Curry

This aromatic curry is inspired by the classic curry of Goa, which was in turn inspired by the Portuguese. Our flavour pots offer the crucial tangy-ness with flavours of sweet tomato along with ginger, garlic, chilli and clove. A garnish of mustard seeds and star anise finishes the dish and it’s all married together by a sweet and creamy coconut milk. Just close your eyes and pretend you’re on the warm beaches of Goa!.

Churrasco Chicken

A flavourful Portuguese-style marinade gives the chicken a deliciously crunchy glaze. We’ve paired this with some more-ish crispy potato wedges and a saffron and garlic aioli with sweetcorn.

Crispy Chilli Beef

As one of the classic Chinese takeaway favourites in Britain, we thought we’d try our hand at a slightly healthier, home-cooked version to give you those same sweet and sour flavours and crunchy textures of this popular dish. Super speedy with barely any chopping, this one’s perfect for sharing with the family.

Chipotle Grilled Steak Salad

A bold steak blend with cracked black pepper, fennel seed and citrus peel is rubbed onto a sirloin steak, which is charred on the grill, then served on crunchy leaves. Avocado, lemon, herb-roasted red peppers and chunks of feta cheese add texture to this colourful bowl of food! Our chipotle and soured cream dressing ties it all together.

Chipotle Grilled Cauli Salad

Mexican cuisine is based on its native ingredients like corn, beans, avocado and chilli peppers or those brought over by the Spanish conquistadors, like rice. While Mexican food is known for being hot, some dishes (like this one) are fairly mild in heat but bold in taste, focusing on the flavours of the chillies, not the spiciness. Many dishes are defined by their sauces, so we’re showcasing the zingy chipotle chilli pepper in our salad dressing!

Wild Mushroom Penne

Pasta served with a deep and creamy sauce flavoured with our specialist mushroom stock and porcini blend. Extra flavours of garlic, chives and black pepper help bring the sautéed mushrooms to life.

Recipe kit allergens: Gluten.

Masala Lamb Chops

Our aromatic masala lamb chops with spiced potatoes offer a great way of enjoying classic Indian flavours with a twist. Whether you griddle the chops on the hob or grill them on the bbq, the lightly charred chops are great when dipped into the minty yoghurt raita. Crispy potatoes seasoned with a cumin and paprika based blend put an Indian twist on oven-baked wedges.

Thai Red Prawn Curry

With authentic Thai flavours of galangal, shallots and dried red chilli this is a deliciously savoury curry which is balanced by the sweetness of the coconut milk and the cherry tomatoes.

Lamb Keema Matar

“Keema Matar”, meaning spiced mince with peas is a traditional South Asian dry-style curry that’s simple to make, but really flavourful. We’ve done ours with lamb, though it can be done with any ground meat. It’s delicious with rice or wrapped in warm Indian naan breads like an Indian burrito, or in a bun as it’s eaten on the streets of Mumbai.

Moghul Chicken Korma

Often thought of as a bland dish for unadventurous diners, the Korma actually has a history as rich as its sauce. It was once a noble dish of high status that graced the banquet tables of the Moghul imperial court. While the curry houses of the UK have spun this dish into a delectably sweet coconutty curry, we’re taking it back to its sophisticated royal roots and letting the warm spices and almond flavours shine through.

Vegetable Jalfrezi

"Jalfrezi" comes from the Bengali words for “spicy” and “fry”, hinting at how this curry is different. Peppers, onions, tomatoes and baby corn are quickly stir-fried then cooked down to create a little bit of sauce which is spicy and tangy, bringing the 'hot-fry' together. A quick alternative to a take-away!

Bean & Sweetcorn Quesadilla

Folded flour tortillas are filled with cumin and chipotle spiced beans and sweetcorn, oozing with melted cheese. Griddled until crispy, these quesadillas are best when paired with the traditionally zingy 'pico de gallo' salsa and dipped into a cooling Mexican BBQ style soured cream. A family favourite taken to another level by the classic sides, this is an all-round flavour sensation of different tastes and textures.
