Swap ready meals for eggy meals with Dean Edwards !
Research shows that UK shoppers spend billions of pounds on convenience food, but TV chef Dean Edwards is hoping to inspire a more natural approach to fast food using the humble egg. Most people are short on time to cook their meals, with £2.5 billion a year spent on chilled ready meals alone, but Dean has created a range of main meals in minutes that won’t break the bank and show that a quick fix at dinner need not mean a takeaway or ready meal.
Dean Edwards’ collection of eight main meals includes new scrambled, poached, tortilla and boiled egg recipes, ranging from an English Breakfast Tortilla to the more exotic Fragrant Indonesian Fried Rice and Fiery Egg & Spinach Curry. The recipes feature on http://www.eggrecipes.co.uk and Dean has also created step by step ‘how to cook’ videos for the Egg Recipes YouTube channel, which prove just how quick and easy the dishes are to make. Dean offers some great tips on how to rustle up a quick and nutritious meal without spending hours in the kitchen, so even a cookery novice can become an egg masterchef.
Here are a couple of the recipe videos to give you an idea :
Dean Edwards says, “Everyone is so busy that quick and simple meals are really important in today’s world, but that doesn’t mean you need to compromise on flavour or quality. If you have a box of eggs in your fridge you can always rustle up a healthy, nutritious meal in no time at all. They are so versatile and can be used with a wide range of ingredients and flavours, so creating a meal to suit the whole family is easy once you have a little inspiration.”
Eggs are becoming increasingly popular amongst those looking to keep in shape with research showing they leave you feeling fuller for longer, as well as containing essential nutrients like protein, vitamin D and B vitamins, with celebrities such as Michelle Keegan citing omelettes as a key part of their healthy diet.
Always use eggs bearing the Lion mark, which guarantees that they have been produced to the highest standards of food safety. All Lion Quality eggs come from British hens vaccinated against salmonella, are fully traceable and have a ‘best before’ date on the shell as a guarantee of freshness.
