Pea, Feta and Mint Frittata with a Cucumber, Avocado and Lemon-Dressed Salad, from The 7-Day Basket by Ian Haste

Say goodbye to multiple trips to the supermarket and to wasted food at the end of the week. The 7-Day Basket is the cookbook you have always wanted. Each chapter starts with a shopping list for the week ahead, followed by seven varied dinners to see you through the week. No more wandering aimlessly round the supermarket wondering what to cook for dinner, this book plans your week ahead, and will have you doing your food shopping in no time. With 10 chapters in the book, Ian does the hard work for you, so all you need to do is shop, cook and enjoy.

The secret is all in the planning and Ian’s concept means you end up with very little waste as many of the ingredients in the recipes overlap.

1 shopping basket + 1 week = 7 dinners.

Each recipe serves two people but simply halve the ingredients if you’re eating on your own, or double them if you are a family of four. This will quickly become your go-to recipe book and with your weekly meal-planning sorted you’ll no longer be faced with the dilemma of ‘what shall we have for dinner tonight?’
