Faster than takeout meals to make at home

Sure, calling in your order is fun and easy, but the time it takes to arrive? That can feel long. So skip the wait and opt for comforting flavours you love with our quick takeout-inspired picks.
Greek (faster than) takeout
Putting some Greek in your week is easy-breezy. The key is to start with our authentically seasoned, gluten-free, no-mess Marinated Lemon and Herb Chicken Kabob. (Bonus: They’re sold individually so you can mix and match with our other skewers.) Drizzle the skewers with Buttermilk Dill Dipping Sauce, a simple, tasty sub for traditional tzatziki. Greek cuisine is famous for its roasted potatoes, and our easy, heat-and-eat Grilled Mini Potatoes are a serious competitor, with A-plus seasonings and an ultra-tender bite. Slice some lemon wedges to squeeze over your spuds and souvlaki, and toss a quick village salad of cubed cukes, tomatoes and red onion; olives; and crumbled feta while everything else heats. A quick swirl of oil and vinegar over that salad, and dinner is ready.
Chinese (faster than) takeout
Partial to a starter of Wonton Soup? Us, too. Our single-serve containers of broth and delicate dumplings — bursting with seasoned ground pork, eggs and water chestnuts — are convenient and don’t leave you with leftovers. Pro tip: Garnish the soup with thinly sliced green onions for a fresh hit of flavour. Gingered Beef is a quick, easy, restaurant-style option, with strips of seasoned beef and a generous amount of tangy-spicy ginger sauce. It was made to be served on top of our zero-fat Rice and Vegetable Medley, which features cooked long-grain rice and steamed blanched veggies that have been packed at the peak of freshness. Cook up our steam-in-bag, garlicky, seasoned Bistro-style Green Beans until tender-crisp and top with a drizzle each of soy sauce and sesame oil, and then garnish with sesame seeds and teriyaki sauce for a tasty take on your go-to veg side.
Mexican (faster than) takeout
Our Chicken Fajita Kit brings authentic Mexican flavours to the table without any fuss. All of the ingredients in this simple meal kit are fully cooked, so all you have to do is heat and serve. Extra hungry? Our Taco Bites are a tasty starter. They’re laid-back, so heat the whole pack or just a few while you wait for your fajitas and rice.
