As a part of my own particular challenge I have put together a list of quick easy meals which only take 15 minutes to make. Hopefully this will stop me from automatically thinking of dial a dish/box at 6pm in the evenings.
Pasta puttanesca - favourite pasta cooked and served with a sauce made from sauted garlic, a finely diced onion, 1 can of tomatoes, a handful of black olives - I don’t bother de pipping as my kids won’t eat olives, a few anchovies and as much or as little dried chilli flakes as you like. Obviously I am feeding kids so I don’t use much.
Potato genovases - baby potatoes boiled, drained and tossed with pesto and cooked whole beans. Serve with crunchy bread.
Fried ciabatta sandwiches with mozzarella, basil and sliced tomatoes
Tofu burgers with satay sauce - Slice firm tofu and dust with your favourite seasoning (mine’s mediterranean spice) shallow fry until golden and crunchy. Serve in a burger bun with salad and satay sauce.
Of course, if I really get my act together I will pop the slow cooker on in the morning
