The quicker to make the better, often get home late and don’t want to spend ages cooking.

Make a batch of this soup and freeze it. With a crusty roll it’s one of the most satisfying veggie meals I make. All the ingredients are what you’d find in your food cupboard with the exception of fresh thyme, which keeps for weeks. You can drizzle the flavoured oil on top and freeze that too.

Nigella does a really nice recipe for cornbread-topped chilli. You can do veggie/bean chilli ahead or in a slow cooker then make up the topping and pop it in the oven for half an hour and dish it up with salad, sour cream and/or guacamole.

Good old vegetable soup is great too - carrots, onion, celery, peppers, potato or lentils and veg stock and you've got a really nice dinner in about half an hour.

Sweet chilli and hallumi wraps, yum! Veg kebabs? Home made pizzas? Beans on toast haha nothing like comfort food.

Baked potatoes are my go to of choice, just ask whoever gets home first to turn the oven on and set timer for about 90 minutes. Then meat fiends can top with whatever they like and you can have....

Cheese and garlicky mushrooms. Baked Beans. Cottage cheese and bits. Sour cream and chives dip (and a bit of cheese) (my personal favourite).

Veggie pho - make up some veg stock and chuck in some ginger, garlic, shredded carrot and cabbage or bok Choy, then add some quick cooking noodles. Beansprouts, coriander, sliced spring onions if you have them can go in at the last minute.

Also baked potatoes can be kick started in the microwave and finished off in the oven if you are desperate for the crispy skin. Depending on how many are needed I've done this in under 20 minutes.

I also batch cook and freeze some stuff - currently I have stashed 2 veggie moussakas, four individually portioned veggie tagines (just need the cous cous cooked) and also Linda McCartney's Mozzarella burgers are godlike. With chips and peas and a big dollop of mayo.

Probably should have added I’m also trying to loose weight so as much as I’d love burgers and all the cheeses my weight wouldn’t grin soup is a good idea.
