Try these quick-fix dinners for the family – not only will they save time, but they are also nutritious

Busy weeknights can make for hectic meals, but these simple recipes prove you don’t have to trim out flavour or precious moments spent with family when you’re cutting minutes off your dinner prep time.

The secret to making quick meals your family will love is quality ingredients. Tasty meals are easy when you incorporate the wholesome flavour of all-natural ingredients you feel good about serving your family, such as canned Hunt’s tomatoes (available in many supermarkets in Oman). Hunt’s peels its diced, whole and stewed tomatoes using steam from simple hot water, so no chemical byproducts get put back into the earth.
