    Thanks for the replies!!

    Googling a few of those recipes they look much more involved than my usual go-to dinners.

    I already have a multi-cooker and it makes amazing risotto and fried rice. I also already use it to make bolognese, casseroles and soups in big (4-6 family meals) batches and freeze as we have a chest freezer.

    Plus a food processor and quite a few other gadgets.

    I'm thinking I might try (TRY!) to teach DH some of my tricks for getting dinner sorted a bit more efficiently first, then revisit this idea if he's still really struggling.

    Chicken volute - my kids love the soup, and DH (veggie hater) doesn't know that the sauce is packed full of vegetables.

    Pulled pork - so, so, so GOOD! And so easy!

    Sorry for crashing. I don't have fancy pants machine. Yes my green horns are showing.

    Anyhow.
    Do you have a slow cooker? If you do he could do the prep work on the weekend. Than bag all ingredients together so he just has to open the bag in the morning and throw it all in machine. That way it would be ready on time.

    There are lots recipes around for doing it. Some people make 20 meals in bags at a time.

    Other than that what about a few ingredient meals, one pot wonders or one pot oven meals or quick cook meals.

    I make a garlic prawn risotto from the RC in my thermie. Something I would have made before as a treat but in thermie I just put it on and do other stuff.
    I also like a coconut rice salmon thing. Rice in bowl...salmon with a soy glaze in the varoma with veggies. It's really yum.
    And another you turn on for 20 minutes and walk away!

    My multi-cooker slow cooks (+ browns, steams and high/low pressure) and I used to have a slow cooker before I got it, so am used to cooking that way already. I actually do all my old slow cooker recipes under pressure now (just reduce liquid a little) and they come out amazing. I did my favourite beef casserole today - 40 minutes under pressure and tasted like it had been slow cooked all day.

    I've checked out those websites where they prep a whole month in one go and bag it all up. It's an impressive way to do things. DH has been getting into being more prepared/organised lately, so this method might appeal to this trend.
