A Day in the Life – Canned Food Recipes for Every Mealtime
We’re all spending more time at home at the moment, and mealtimes are definitely the highlight of our days. We’ve got all the inspiration you need to brighten up breakfast, make lunchtime lovely, and dinnertime delicious – with canned food recipes for every meal from dawn ‘til dusk dawn.
Many of us have a little more time on our hands and can treat ourselves to a lie-in without the daily commute to worry about.
So prepare your breakfast the night before with our Overnight Oats with Fruit recipe. Simply mix oats, milk, canned peach slices and mandarin segments with Greek yoghurt and pop in the fridge until the morning.
Or get the kids involved in creating a fruity brunch- these Peach Pancakes made with semi-skimmed milk and tasty canned peaches are super simple and delicious.
Working from home or looking for a quick lunch the kids will enjoy too? Tuck into a Mixed Bean Salad which will be ready in just 10 minutes! You’ll need different types of beans such as mixed beans, black-eyed beans and French beans to mix with fresh herbs and a drizzle of homemade dressing. Delicious!
Alternatively, these Minced Beef Burritos are the perfect lunch to make for the family with canned minced beef and onion, a Mexican spice mix, vegetables and high fibre canned kidney beans. Perfect for a busy day.
Sometimes the last thing you want to do at the end of the day is to stand up and cook for an hour. The solution? Try this Meat Free Lasagne recipe that frees up 30 minutes of time whilst it cooks without assistance, so you can hang out with the kids or read a book. Simply add in canned chickpeas, green beans and borlotti beans to make this a filling veggie family favourite
So hungry you can’t wait that long? These 3 Bean Tacos take just 10 minutes to make. Using a mix of canned beans and herbs and spices, they’re packed full of protein. Enjoy the leftovers as tomorrow’s lunch too!
Still got room for dessert? Our Chocolate Bean Brownie is a chocoholics dream come true. The secret ingredient is canned black beans – not your usual chocolate brownies but they’ll certainly leave you wanting seconds.
Or how about these light and fluffy Banana and Prune Muffins? Made with bananas and canned prunes, they’re packed full of fibre, so you can enjoy them guilt-free. If there’s any left-over, they are also great as breakfast muffins!
