Easy Recipes for One or Two

handsThis section provides recipes that are suitable for older people who are cooking for one or two people. The recipes use readily available ingredients and are quick and easy to prepare as well as being nutritious and delicious!

In most instances the recipes are for one or two serves. The exception is for soups and casseroles where it makes sense to make a larger quantity (four or more serves) and freeze the leftovers in meal sized portions.


Recipes are grouped under the following categories:


Recipe of the Month

Here comes April, and what better way to enjoy the cooler months than a hearty casserole for dinner.  This is plant-based so full of vitamins, antioxidants and fibre.  It also tastes delicious.  So, give our Carrot and Red Lentil Dahl a go!  It freezes very well, enjoy it with rice, pita or flat bread and some greens on the side.
