7 time saving kitchen hacks
Whatever your attitude towards cooking, it’s fair to say that many of us would appreciate spending less time in the kitchen. So, whether you’re making a quick salad or a gourmet dinner, here are some fool proof hacks to help you get the cooking done quickly.
Prep your pans
Preparing your pots and pans either in the morning or the night before can help you save time when cooking your evening meal
Set up your cooking space
Set up your cooking space so that you have easy access to the tools and utensils you use the most frequently. For example, keeping the chopping board and cooking utensils next to the cooker
Chop vegetables in advance
Save time meal prepping by chopping up vegetables in advance and then storing in the fridge in airtight containers.
Use sharp knives
Investing in a good set of sharp knives or using a knife sharpener can help to make quick work of slicing, cutting and chopping ingredients.
Clean as you go
You can save time washing up by doing it as you cook. For example, if you’re leaving a pot to simmer on the cooker for a few minutes, you could use this time to wash up any pots or utensils that no longer need using.
Double up your recipe
Double up your recipe to save half as leftovers to enjoy for a quick and easy meal the next day. Portioning out into food containers while you’re serving dinner to help save extra time.
Simplify your meals
Stick to quick and simple meals that require few ingredients and take less time to prepare. Our recipe for dippy eggs with halloumi soldiers for example only requires 3 ingredients and can be ready in just 20 minutes.
