    quick cuisine

    Many of us are rushed, busy lives, and how well we eat suffers, so here I just wanted to have a collection in this thread of quick food ideas. only two requirements

    they are healthy and/or they are yummie


    lets say start to finish no more than 30 mins, and that should include all prep work
    what would also be nice if it they dont call for stuff that people usually dont have in the pantry. or nothing exotic.

    Mine.

    chicken breast, bbq sauce, salsa..seal it in foil, toss it in the oven and its all set.
    actually that approach can work with other stuff too.

    meanwhile I can make some rice or pasta and steam some veggies.

    Well, here's another quick one:

    Turn on the grill. Meanwhile, marinate chicken with paprika, salt, ginger garlic and some oil. While chicken is grilling, bake some potatoes in a paper bag in the microwave, and fix a salad, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, feta, orange slices, walnuts, etc...

    Or, stirfry beef strips with some vinegar and coarsely chopped garlic/ginger. When it turns brownish add onions and frozen veggies like stir fry mixes, add soy sauce, salt pepper, red chilli flakes. Meanwhile, steam some rice.

      roasted nuts + pineapple + boiled peas + boiled potato + dont boil the carrots + boiled macaronis + cucumber + chopped apple + chopped cabbage + mayonnaise = Russian Salad


      ps: there is a specific technique to make a fresh mayonnaise but it good to see its making, live.

        Pan Fry Tilapia
        Marinate it with lemon juice,salt ,red and black pepper, and ajwaein.And start frying with very little oil.It take about 15 minutes and in the mean time bake potatoes and serve it with coleslow.

            Potatoes and carrots can both be cooked in the microwave within 10 mins depending on the quantity.

              if u r not putting it in microwave (as chachi suggested) then dont just boil the entire aalo...chop it into smaller pieces. it will boil fairly very easily. btw first boil the potatoes, n then in the same water boil the carrots, and then put peas in it.

              *it is always good to sprinkle olive oil on to the boil macaronis, potatoes, carrots, peas when they are boiling, as olive oil gives them a fresher look.

              ps. i forgot to mention chopped apple n cabbage as well. (lemme edit the post)

              ps2. u really dont have to boil the carrots. :halo:

                            Take fish , i mostly use Tilapia , or chicken ( boneless or with bone) . mix lemon juice + little yogurt ( not necessary though) + garlic + salt + powdered red pepper n black pepper + little cumin powder + soya sauce + oil , apply on the meat now either put it in ziplock bag and freeze the marinated meat or bake it in oven right away , have them with steamed or sautee' veggies and bread or pasta.

                            Another one is Take 5 spices + lemon grass+ soya sauce + little salt + garlic + oil mix it well now apply over chicken strips or beef strips and bake , also u can first stir fry that meat so that it stay soft than bake later , have them with veggie pasta .

                              Chicken fajita's

                              Cut chicken breast into strips, and marinade (for about 10 mins while you make salsa)with:

                              Paprika
                              Fresh garlic
                              Lemon juice
                              Salt
                              Cumin powder
                              Salt
                              Oregano
                              Corriander powder

                              Meanwhile make salsa - mix:
                              Chopped tomatoes
                              Shredded lettuce
                              Avocado
                              Red onion
                              Fresh corriander

                              And slice some peppers for chicken.

                              Heat a griddle pan brush it with olive oil, add chicken after a couple of mins add sliced peppers and cook until, cooked through. About 10 mins.
