Gousto’s Top 5 Recipes

1. Sweet Chilli & Sesame Chicken Udon

Let’s kick off with the popular one, which is filled with umami flavour—the udon with sweet chilli chicken. In only 10 minutes, you will have a bowlful of the noodles that are slurpy and coated with the sticky, chilli-soy sauce and topped with the crispy fried onions for the crunch. Spinach and spring onions contribute a fresher taste, while the robust sesame oil offers a beautiful, nutty flavour. It’s speedy, slurpable satisfaction.

2. Smoky Chicken & Mushroom Spaghetti

Channeling the comforting flavours of beef stroganoff, this creamy spaghetti dish is the perfect mid-week treat. Smoky paprika chicken and garlic-buttered mushrooms get stirred through with soft cheese to make an indulgent sauce to smother the wholewheat pasta. A dollop of mustard adds a cheeky kick, while parsley keeps things bright. Warm, hearty and a little bit naughty – my kind of food!

3. Turkish-Style Lamb Koftas with Tahini Yoghurt

Bring some Anatolian zing into your kitchen with these flavour-packed lamb koftas. Inspired by classic Turkish kebabs, the minced lamb gets a vibrant boost from baharat spice mix, cayenne pepper and garlic. Chargrilled until smoky, the koftas are perfect teamed with crunchy red cabbage slaw, cooling yoghurt spiked with nutty tahini, and crushed new potatoes for mopping up all those gorgeous juices. It’s a plateful of bold, contrasting tastes and textures.

4. Sweet Chilli Chicken with Veg-Packed Rice

Sometimes you just crave that sticky, caramelised sweet chilli sauce, don’t you? This recipe really leans into those cravings, smothering tender chicken breast pieces in a punchy glaze made from garlic, honey, soy and sweet chilli relish. Serve it piled over veggie-crammed rice flecked with peas, carrots and spring onions for a burst of freshness. Toasted sesame lends an aromatic nuttiness, while a sprinkle of black sesame adds a stylish finish.

5. One-Pot Greek-Style Lamb Stew with Feta & Mint

Sometimes you just want food that gives you a great big hug – step forward this rustic Greek-inspired lamb stew. Taking cues from the iconic flavours of moussaka, it teams rich lamb mince with aubergine, oregano and tomatoes to create a thick, glossy sauce. But the genius move? Crumbling through salty feta and fragrant mint right at the end to cut through the richness with pops of bright flavour. Serve with crusty bread for serious comfort factor.
