Being raised in the 21st century, life has come a long way to find shortcuts to lead an easy life. Simpler dishes made with basic ingredients are the means to go for a college student or any working family. As these following dishes have helped me, I hope they help you too to save your time and energy.
Smoothies can be an enjoyable utility meal at any time of day, made, even more, satisfying with the addition of protein powder or protein-packed nut fats and seeds. This berry shake uses all frozen and raw ingredients that just get blended. You’ll even have plenty of time to wash the blender before heading out the door.
There’s no need to depend on fast-food bistros for a good egg sandwich. It takes about three to five minutes to cook an egg. In the meantime, toast bread or a roll in a broiler with a slice of cheese. Then set the egg on top of the cheese and cover with the other half of the bread or roll, adding seasonings to taste.
In this dish, eggs are seethed in a spicy tomato sauce and eaten with pita or crusty bread for a nourishing brunch, lunch, or dinner. While you could definitely take your time simmering homemade sauce for hours, this dish can also be whipped up lightning fast with a jar of sauce.
Quick Cooking Oats:
Oatmeal is one of the healthiest and inexpensive ways to fill up at breakfast. Steel-cut oats have the maximum nutrition, but they take about 30 minutes to become softer. The quick-cooking variety, however, takes only five to seven minutes.
Eggs, tomatoes, and spinach all cook swiftly, which means this indulgent meal takes just 15 minutes to cook. You can expand on this basic recipe by replacing or adding other tender greens, vegetables, and meats that are already prepared.
Chicken Noodle Soup:
The key to this quick soup is starting with pre-cooked chicken breast or rotisserie chicken to cut down on cooking time. Also, re-use the chicken broth to make it more nutritious.
Coconut milk and canned chickpeas make this and other parallel recipes a breeze to cook. Because the coconut milk is so nutritious, healthy, and flavorful, you can season the dish with prevailing aromatics such as ginger and garlic without overwhelming its taste or having to depend on an expensive pre-made sauce.
You can now make this takeout classic in your very own kitchen, and it will take you less time than waiting for the delivery food to arrive. Just quickly chop the chicken into small pieces and to make it more desirable you can use any choice of sauce.
Veggie Fried Rice:
Much like a stir-fry, fried rice is all about cooking ingredients swiftly on high heat. The best time to break out this recipe is when you previously have cooked rice. Rice that has spent a day or two in the fridge will fry up well.
Spaghetti, and heavy cream form the base of this delightful seafood pasta. Then, garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper give it a huge flavor enhancement.
The fingertip recipes are very quick and nutritious for diet. You can quickly try these out and leave home full stomach.
