5 Best Batch Cooking Recipes

Looking for some batch cooking ideas to feed the whole family? We have put together the best 5 healthy batch cooking recipes, including midweek dinner ideas and family favourites which are great for feeding a hungry crowd.

The Best Bolognese Recipe

Making Spaghetti Bolognese is one of the quickest recipes and a real crowd-pleaser for many. One of the most common questions is, how long can you keep bolognese in the fridge or freezer. Spaghetti Bolognese will usually last up to 5 days in the fridge, or can be frozen for up to 3 months.

TROO Top Tip: When you are reheating your Bolognese, make sure it is piping hot all the way through. Also add plenty of herbs in Spaghetti Bolognese, we like to include basil, oregano and plenty of garlic.


Chickpea, Sweet Potato and Spinach Curry

Homemade Curry is a great recipe for batch cooking. Check out our favourite Vegetable Curry recipe. We like to add a tablespoon of TROO Spoonful of Fibre Inulin syrup to our savoury dishes. It's made from Chicory Root with absolutely nothing else added. Every spoonful contains 65% soluble, prebiotic fibre and only 9% natural sugars!⁠

Slow Cooker Ratatouille

This super easy Ratatouille recipe is perfect for when you are on the go during the day and don't have time in the evening to prepare and cook a meal for the whole family. Simply slice up your favourite vegetables, fry them all off in a pan with chopped tomatoes and tomato puree until softened, then transfer them into the slow cooker on a low heat for 5-6 hours.

Vegetable Curry Soup

Wondering how to make the perfect Vegetable Curry Soup? We have our favourite recipe here, however you can use vegetables of your choice or whatever you have leftover in the fridge. This recipe also uses TROO Spoonful of Fibre Pure Inulin syrup to help fill your fibre gap and add a natural, delicate sweetness to your mild curry soup.

Mashed Potato Pie

Mashed Potato Pies are designed to be made ahead of time and frozen. Topped with cheesy mashed potato, you can add any fillings you like. We love to add mince meat, chicken and mushroom, or broccoli, leeks and celery is a great combo.
Once cooked, pack into freezer bags and use within 3 months. To serve, unwrap your pie and put on a baking tray at 180C fan for 50-55 mins, or until bubbling and hot all the way through.
