5 batch cooking ideas to sort you out

From breakfast to dinner, we’ve got you covered.

Whether you’ve clicked on this listicle because you enjoy cooking or if you’re simply looking for batch cooking ideas, I’ve got you covered. All you need is a couple of hours over the weekend and you’ve got your weekly meals covered. The best part is that I’ve made sure that each of these ideas can be adapted to suit vegan and other dietary requirements.


Muffins, but not the sweet kind. The main ingredients are eggs, flour, and baking powder. Mix in veggies, sources of protein like tofu, chicken, or bacon, pour into a muffin tin, and stick them in the oven. Cool and leave in the fridge for a perfect grab-and-go breakfast!


Rice, barley, or quinoa salad, anyone? Cook a large batch of your preferred carb and mix it in with veggies, grilled chicken, or tofu, and a flavoursome spices, herbs, and a dressing like lemon or sesame oil. Divide it into containers and you’ve got your office lunch for the week.


A Maltese favourite here (I have to) – stuffed peppers. Fill them with couscous, rice, more veggies, cheese, tuna – whatever you fancy really. Bake them and let them cool before leaving them in the fridge. Reheat them in the oven when you’re ready to eat them and enjoy them.

Savory Snack

Baked falafel, no doubt. You’ve got chickpeas, herbs, and spices to keep you full till it’s time for your next meal. This protein-high snack pairs well with hummus, tahini, and carrot sticks.

Sweet Snack

Fruit and nut energy balls all the way here. You’ve got honey (or maple syrup for vegans) to satisfy your sweet tooth mixed in together with dates, nuts, dried fruits, and even nut butter. The combinations are endless. They sit well in the fridge, making these the ideal go-to sweet treat.
