Well, my camera charger is still lost. D’oh! And it will have to stay lost for a little bit, because I am headed overseas again.
There have been many nights recently where I wanted something quick, either due to business, tiredness, or laziness. 😉 So, here’s a roundup post for you, giving you a few ideas of what to whip up next time you are in that position!
When all else fails: Cook up a quick-cooking grain like quinoa, open a can a beans, and toss together with lemon juice, olive oil, salt & pepper, garlic (quick if you have a garlic press), olive, artichokes, dried or fresh herbs, etc. Serve with a handful of green salad mix (no need to spend lots of time chopping, just open one of those plastic clamshell salad boxes and go with it), or steamed or sauteed veggies (my fave to whip up are brussel sprouts, asparagus, cauliflower, broccoli, etc)
Or, can’t ever go wrong with salad! I have lots and lots of salad recipes here
Other quick recipes include:
Thai Peanut Cabbage Wraps with Tofu and Veggies (just make this a salad to save time)
There’s also a whole slew of fantastic and quick recipes in Super Natural Every Day. How am I just now discovering this cookbook?! New favorite, for sure. 🙂
What do you like to cook when you want dinner, and fast?
