12 Best Batch Cooking Dinner Recipes
Whether you’re cooking for a crowd or trying to get ahead with some meal prep, batch cooking recipes is a great way to organise your meals and reduce food waste. All of the recipes found below are reduced-calorie, low in carbs and provide you with a healthy boost in fibre.
More servings from just one base
Although Lo-Dough bases are perfect for pizzas, toasties, and wraps, you can also get several servings out of one base. Recipes like quiches, tarts and pies only require one base, yet provide you with up to 4 servings. Want to bulk out a gratin or traybake? Add some of our Southern Style Coating. It’s fibre-rich, gluten-free, and adds another level of seasoning to your dishes.
Veg & Chorizo Gratin
Top this colourful gratin with a mix of our Southern Style Coating and Parmesan for a proper tasty, low carb topping.
Low Cal Quesadillas
Top tip: cook-off a big batch of this shredded chicken or black bean chilli, as it can be used in these quesadillas, fajitas, enchiladas, chilli bowls and more! Just freeze the main mix in portions and defrost when you need it.
The Lo-Dough Chicken Parmo
A ‘Boro classic with a healthier twist. To get ahead of the game, bread several chicken breasts with our Southern Style Coating at once and freeze to make preparing this recipe even quicker.
Chicken & Mushroom Pudding
Puddings are the epitome of comfort food, and by substituting the usual pastry for a Lo-Dough base, you can reduce carbs by up to 90% while losing nothing on the flavour front. The filling can be batch cooked as a stew and one of these puddings will serve up to four people.
