Sometimes you really don’t have the time or inclination to cook. Don’t worry! In this blog I share 3 tasty ideas and useful tips for a super quick and tasty meal.
I like to cook and have a nice long dinner, but sometimes the time or energy is not there. And I’m not the only one I notice in conversations around me. You can then throw a frozen pizza in the oven, but before it is heated up, you can also make a tasty meal yourself in the same time. I came up with and made 3 recipes that are ready in 10 minutes! And below you will find even more handy and tasty ingredients for a super quick meal :
My favorite ingredients for a quick meal are:
- Couscous, this one will be ready in a few minutes. Throw in some veggies and nuts and you’ve got a tasty quick nutritious meal.
- Rice for 1 minute, just pop it in the microwave and you’re done. You can also use leftover rice from the previous day.
- Pre-cut vegetables, okay not the cheapest or most sustainable solution but super handy! Just stir fry and you’re done!
- Smoked or cooked chicken, delicious in a salad or with pasta.
- Vegetables or legumes from a can or bag such as red cabbage, chickpeas, lentils, beans or the well-known peas with carrots.
- Noodles, soak in hot water and ready! An ideal basis for an oriental meal
- Pre-cooked potatoes from the bag, before I put them in the pan I often preheat them for a few minutes extra in the microwave, after that you only have to bake them crispy all around in the pan.
- Canned tuna, ideal for a salad or in a wrap.
Many of these ingredients can easily be stored in your pantry and you will have them at hand. You can quickly get other groceries in the store, for example at Spar . In this store, convenience comes first and you will find many ingredients for a quick and easy meal.
Tip: if you work in the city or attend a university, you can simply walk into a SPAR city or SPAR university .
