Our 10 Favourite Super-Fast Meal Ideas From Joe Wicks

Photograph: Glen Burrows

We don’t have to tell you about Joe Wicks. You, like us, are probably already one of his dedicated 1.7m Instagram followers, constantly double-tapping on the delicious quick-fire recipes he uploads, all of which remove any excuse to reach for the takeaway menu and dial up a greasy curry ever again.

In fact, so popular is the Body Coach that, incredibly, he’s behind the second best-selling cookbook in the UK, chasing some guy called Jamie Oliver, having sold more than one million copies of his award-winning Lean In 15. Yup, Wicks is a biiig deal now, and with stacks of super-fast, tasty and healthy recipe ideas under his belt – like the ten favourites we’ve pulled out below – it’s not hard to see why.

1. Game-Changing Salmon Scotch Eggs

Just imagine the look on your colleagues’ faces as they glumly peel back the wrapper on another £3 meal-deal sandwich at their desk and you crack open your Tupperware box to reveal a couple of these healthy homemade beauties. Midweek lunchtime? You’ve just won it.

2. Quickfire Lamb Kofta Pittas

Even if it’s absolutely biblical outside, cling on to some al fresco BBQ vibes with these grilled meat bombs. Opt for wholemeal pittas and get a dose of iron from the grains.

3. Rockin’ Vietnamese Rolls

Enjoyed summer rolls in your local Vietnamese joint but thought you lacked the culinary chops to pull them off at home? Hoo boy were you wrong. Load up on sweet chilli dipping sauce and get to work.

4. The Big Boy Breakfast Burrito

Everything tastes better in wrap form, even your favourite protein-packed brunch staples. We’d slather this fistful of greatness in hot sauce too. Although to be fair we’d slather everything in hot sauce if it wasn’t frowned upon.

5. The Give-Meat-A-Break Stuffed Mushrooms

A post shared by Joe Wicks #Leanin15 (@thebodycoach) on Sep 17, 2017 at 1:59am PDT

Here’s one for those whose carnivorous side refuses to relent, even for a day. Trick your inner flesh fiend into thinking it’s gorging on a slab of meat with this giant steaky mushroom, topped with tastebud-tingling feta and goodness-rich salad stuff.

6. Ridiculously Good-Looking Baked Egg Rolls

A post shared by Joe Wicks #Leanin15 (@thebodycoach) on Jan 22, 2017 at 1:19am PST

Oh, this? Only the best idea ever. Slice off the top of a roll, hollow it out, spread some pesto in there, layer in some ham, crack an egg in it and pop it in the oven.

7. Stack-’Em-High Fruity Protein Pancakes

A post shared by Joe Wicks #Leanin15 (@thebodycoach) on Jan 9, 2017 at 4:00am PST

You always mean to make them; here’s your justification. Consider this a big protein-packed push towards the frying pan.

8. Low-Carb, Big Heat Spicy Chilli Bowl

A post shared by Joe Wicks #Leanin15 (@thebodycoach) on Dec 23, 2016 at 1:06pm PST

The archetypal winter warmer in a hurry. Whack up the heat and get this dish down to 15 minutes.

9. Killer Chicken Katsu Curry

A post shared by Joe Wicks #Leanin15 (@thebodycoach) on Dec 22, 2016 at 10:23am PST

Good luck getting this cooked in 15 minutes – and good luck not wolfing it down within five. All is forgiven, though, for getting the sweetness in the sauce from an apple and for instructing us to bash the chicken breast with a saucepan.

10. Turbo-Quick Tortilla Pizza

A post shared by Joe Wicks #Leanin15 (@thebodycoach) on Jan 21, 2017 at 10:13am PST

Done, quicker than you can say “just like Mama used to make”.
