THE FRIDGE IS almost empty, you’re out of leftovers and you have to be out the door again in an hour. What’s your go-to meal for dinner?

Whether you’re cooking for yourself or for the whole family, getting food on plates after a hectic day can be a bit of a nightmare. But everyone has one or two simple options they turn to when time (and ingredients) are short, and we want to know yours.

As part of‘s brand new Lidl Food Magazine, each week we’ll be asking our readers to share their cooking tips, kitchen hacks and go-to-dishes. From the secret to great roast potatoes to the best burger toppings, we’ll have a new question every seven days.

This week, we’re asking…

What do you cook when you’re short on time and ingredients?

Simply comment below or email to tell us your lifesaving weeknight dinner and why you’d recommend it.

You could see your response in the next issue of the Lidl Food Magazine.

Want to be included every week?

We’re building a panel of home cooks and foodies right now from our readers to answer our weekly question and share their kitchen hacks. If you’re interested (and fancy the chance to win a few prizes from Lidl along the way), send us a mail on with ‘Home Cooks Panel’ in the subject line. Be sure to include:

  • Your name
  • Your contact details
  • What kind of foods you like cooking best

If you’ve already been in touch, keep your eyes peeled for an email soon!

Congrats to last week’s winner Eileen Costello, whose tip for choosing a ripe avocado every time won her a €50 Lidl voucher.
