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

We have made it to the shortest day of the year!  It is the season for slow-cooked meals and our Beef, Orange & Prune casserole is a winner. 

Usually our Senior Chef recipes make enough for 1-2 serves.  However, our casseroles make enough for four serves because of the long slow cooking required and you can freeze the leftovers (for a rainy day!).

It's also a great meal to share with whanau or friends.
