7 Sumptuous Recipes that Require No Planning
Even though we’ve been masters of organizing our time, there will be days when we things will get out of hand. We’re talking about unexpected overtime at work and extra rushed errands.
When these things happen, we won’t have enough time to do other things such as preparing our meals.
Good thing is, we found recipes that will save your stressful/pressured day!
“These recipes don’t ask that you’ve done anything to prep in advance. They understand procrastination (and the pressures of real life), and they won’t have you counting down the minutes ’til the beans are cooked through.”
A Spicy Perspective’s Garlic Lime Oven-Baked Salmon
Enjoy a sizziling experience of salmon with a tangy twist. You can always choose the texture of your salmon. The lower the temperature, the softer the salmon will be.
A Warm Pan of Chickpeas, Chorizo, and Chèvre
“This dish has a little something for everyone: a kick of spice from the chorizo, a hint of warmth from the roasted red peppers, heartiness from the chickpeas, a pop of green from the spinach, and some soothing creaminess from the chèvre. Sit down with a heaping portion and a fork and allow yourself to sink into its comfort.“
Curried Smoked Turkey Salad
This easy peasy salad is perfect for lunch or snacktime. You’ll be surprised with the delightful taste of the garlic relish and the idea of a seeded bread with this salad!
Minced Chicken and Cashew with Thai Basil
“Tasty and simple. You get lots of Thai basil and it’s flavor. It didn’t say when to add the onions so threw them in with the garlic. It’s a very yummy salty sauce with lots of crunchy nuts.”
“Little more than corn tortillas run through refried beans, enfrijoladas are the easiest, most satisfying answer to a quick dinner or Cinco de Mayo main. I’m inclined to add all the toppings—an egg, hot peppers, frenzy of cilantro—but if your batch of beans is a good one they’ll need little else.”
Vegetable Chow Mein-ish with Asparagus, Shiitakes, and Edamame
This will be an instant family favorite. It’s filled with tasty veggies and it’s an awesome pair with wine or beer. You can use any noodle.
Welsh Rarebit with Spinach
“With a wise addition of spinach (we used fresh), this cheesy, mustardy open-faced sandwich would make a satisfying afternoon snack, or even a plated breakfast with the addition of bangers and eggs. A British comfort food staple for everyone’s in-between meal arsenal.”
