I don’t know about you but this seems to happen to me quite a lot even though I recommend prior planning at least a couple of days in advance if not for the whole week!!!!
Things change and sometimes you just don’t get time, or feel like cooking what you had planned!
Here’s some of my really quick go to meals that take hardly any time and can be literally whipped up in minutes. (Just how I like it!) You can mix and match most of them depending on what you have in the fridge. They are all really easy! If I can cook them anybody can! xx
~ Pesto (of course!) can be put together really quickly with all sorts of combinations of anything in your fridge. Just team it with pasta or veggie noodles for a really quick easy and healthy dinner. Link to the recipes here.
~ Anything with eggs - frittata made from a mix of veggies in your fridge, and some fish or chicken if you have any, fried in coconut oil. Add whisked eggs with a splash of milk to the pan and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with cheese of your choice.
~ Scrambled eggs with mixed veggies and a side salad or steamed veggies. Super easy!
~ Eggy fried rice. Plenty of finely chopped veggies and mixed egg. The kiddies love it!
~ Salmon steak cooked on the hob with a ginger, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper dressing. Served with raw thinly shredded cabbage, carrot, cucumber, pepper ( You can use a spiralizer if you have one or a vegetable peeler really finely). Add some rice noodles if you have any, all sprinkled with an organic soya sauce.
~ Veggies in a peanut sauce - Thinly sliced veggies (Cabbage, cucumber, courgette, carrot, pepper) mixed with a sauce of peanut butter, squeeze of lemon and soya sauce. Served with pan roasted chicken or salmon or whatever you have in.
~ Honey chicken and rice - Mix diced chicken with honey, soy sauce ( You could pop some ginger and garlic as well) and fry in the pan, add thinly sliced carrot, pepper any veggies you like. ( I like them crunchy but you may want to steam them first) Add cashew nuts for last couple of minutes. Serve with whole grain rice.
~ Pan fried anything seasoned with salt and pepper or spices such as turmeric and paprika with lots of steamed veggies.
~ Really quick lentil casserole - Stir fry a selection of finely chopped veggies (leafy greens, onion, carrot, pepper, fennel) add lentils and stock and simmer until lentils are cooked. Add a cheese of your choice to each portion or sprinkle with oregano or other herb if you want. Serve with grilled tortillas or sliced pitta to dip.
