Cook once and eat all week; 20 batch lunch and dinner recipes for summer

One of our most popular food galleries is a curated list of the best batch cooking recipes. It's clear that our lives are increasingly busy, demanding and hectic.

However, that was in the midst of October when the evenings grew dark, cold and dreary. It was full of gooey pasta bakes and hearty soups to comfort us through the winter months. But now that the evenings are long and the sun is beaming, it feels slightly redundant, which is why we've created a summer edition. 

This time our gallery is packed with refreshing dishes such as lettuce wraps and Mediterranean classics that can be eaten warm or cold. 

Here's to ending those 'what shall we eat for dinner?' conundrums and spending more time out in the sun.
