Fast, delicious weeknight dinners have never been easier.

Frozen bread, spinach and peas? Check. Canned chickpeas, lentils and tomatoes? Check. Eggs, mayo and leftover rice? Check!

Take the stress out of weeknight dinners by letting a well-stocked pantry, fridge and freezer do the work for you. You'll be amazed at the delicious, fuss-free meals that can be created with just a few basic ingredients.

Justine Schofield shows you how, with more than 100 simple meal ideas based on everyday staples. Meet your new go-to meals: easy-cheesy spinach gratin (frozen spinach + breadcrumbs + cheese); fish and potato cakes with tangy tartare (canned fish + potato + yoghurt + pickles); and lemony Greek chicken and pea tray bake (chicken + frozen peas + lemons + dried oregano).

With dinners this simple you even have time for dessert! Add some weeknight magic with baked apple slippers (apples + puff pastry + sugar) or tropical rice pudding (rice + milk + pineapple + spices) - simple sweets that deliver on flavour with minimal time and effort.
