Meals for 1
Below you’ll find the full menu of our hand-prepared meals for one. Nothing beats a home cooked meal, but making meals for one person at home can either mean lots of leftovers languishing in your fridge or you eating the same thing, night after night. COOK can help. Just choose a selection of our meals for one for your freezer and, whether you need a quick lunch or a traditional supper, you’ll have a delicious menu of tasty, easy meals for 1 at your fingertips.
We marinate virtually all our chicken before cooking, to make sure it's tender and flavoursome. It's time-consuming but worth it. (Don't forget, all our meals cook straight from frozen, unless otherwise indicated).
We can trace the beef we use right back to the farm and field. It all comes from cows grass-fed and reared outside (weather permitting) at small, family-run farms in the UK and Ireland. And the mince we use is all ground in our Kitchen from prime cuts.
For our lamb mince we take whole legs of lamb and mince them ourselves in the Mincer Of Truth. This way we know that nothing but top quality meat goes into our lamb mince recipes.
Rolling meatballs by hand might sound straightforward, but you try doing 4,000 at a time....That's how many meatballs we make in a single batch. It's home cooking on a grand scale - but with the same care and attention to detail you'd put in yourself.
We've been getting fish from Shane the fishmonger in Rainham, Kent ever since we launched, in 1997. Shane gets embarrassed when he pays for things because he thinks his money smells of fish. It's not all roses being a fishmonger. Nor cod.
There’s no shortage of delicious dishes to choose from – and they’re all made like you would at home. If you need microwave meals for one or you just have an oven, we have options suitable for both, including plenty of Great Taste Award winners. Looking for more healthy meals for one? Check out our lower calorie Pots and our Love Eating Well ranges. If you fancy a proper curry night, then explore our Indian and Thai menus. You can create your own ‘thali’ by choosing a selection of your favourite meals for 1 and sharing them.
And if you have a special diet and need an easy dinner for one, we’ve got that covered, too. Our chefs have created plenty of meals for vegetarians and vegans, as well as dairy free and gluten free options.
Some frozen meals for 1 are complete meals in themselves, like our Pots¸ but many will need some rice, cous cous, mash or something else to go with them. You can either knock that up while your meal is cooking or we can help. Explore our menu of side dishes here.
