Nadiya Hussain Time To Eat: Everything you need to know about Nadiya’s new cooking show

Nadiya Hussain’s Time To Eat is perfect for time-poor families who want good, fast food.

Nadiya Hussain promises recipes that can be cooked in a hurry but have buckets of flavour in her new TV series, Time to Eat.

The Bake Off champ is back on our screens following the success of her previous cookery shows. During her first series The Chronicles of Nadiya, we tracked her adventures as she returned to her culinary roots in Bangladesh.

In 2017, Nadiya travelled closer to home, meeting fisherman, farmers, producers and chefs, in Nadiya’s British Food Adventure. And last year, in Nadiya’s Family Favourite, she shared some of the dishes she loves to cook at home.

Nadiya Hussain’s Time To Eat: What can you expect?

Although we all wish we had the time to muster up a giant éclair roll or a ham and cheese crown every week, the truth is we don’t always have the time.

Which is why Nadiya wants to help time-poor families cook comforting meals that take hardly any time to cook and don’t break the bank.

Speaking about the show Nadiya explained: ‘We’re a nation that loves to cook and eat delicious food but we don’t always have the time with our busy working hours and family routines. Busy lives deserve delicious meals.’

During the show Nadiya visits households across the nation to share her tasty, time-saving recipes. She’s on a mission to prove even busy families can cook delicious meals after a hectic day with a little future planning, the help of the freezer, and making use of left-overs.

Early highlights include her inventive hack for turning pancakes into a traybake treat. She also shares her ideas for time-saving bakes – including a decadent tarte tatin with the quickest method for making ice cream ever, and fresh homemade bread that’s ready in half the normal time.

Watch Nadiya’s Time To Eat on BBC Two each Monday at 8pm. Repeated on Saturdays at 11.30am.

Nadiya Hussain’s Time To Eat recipes:

As ever, Nadiya comes up with plenty of inventive recipes during the series including Bengali Bangers and Smash, Banoffee Waffles, Chorizo and Fish Stew and Chocolate Orange Blossom Cake. Here are three of our favourite dishes from the series.

Boa buns with spicy tuna

Once you’ve perfected Nadiya’s bao buns with spicy tuna recipe, you can fill them with whatever you fancy. Why not try a hoisin duck filling, or pork and garlic?

 Teriyaki salmon with mango salsa

Nadia’s teriyaki salmon with mango salsa is a great way  to get protein into your diet. Nadia says: ‘A good teriyaki is made even more delicious when the fish is left to sit in the sauce overnight in the fridge, but there is nothing to say that it can’t be instant.’

Parmesan scones with salmon paste

Nadiya’s classic savoury scones with salmon paste recipe will guarantee your scones rise high and tall – you sure will impress friends at brunch or guests at an afternoon tea party.
