Truth be told 95% my meals are fast and easy. I like cooking but I do not like stress so I have a list of meals that I make that take 15-30 minutes to get on the plate. The only time my weeknight meals take longer is when I am making fries or tots in the oven, my oven takes forever to warm up!
I keep canned beans in the pantry as well as rice and noodles, in the freezer I have frozen veggies and fries and in the fridge I always have tofu, nut milk and salsa. I can make multiple meals out of any of the above ingredients quickly.
However you cannot get much more quick or easier with a vegan wrap from Trader Joe's. These are handy lunch staples for us. Matt likes the one above and I like the lentil. They are pretty hearty, good to split for a picnic paired with some chips or eat the whole thing with a side salad or tots if you feel like turning on your oven for dinner.
I really need to check out Trader Joe's sometime; the wraps sound awesome! :)ReplyDelete
Your pantry sounds like mine. The wraps look good. England is lagging behind in terms of wraps and sandwiches. Whenever I see something in a shop that looks vegan it always seems to have yoghurt, Creme fraiche or honey in the ingredients list. Luckily there are a couple of chain places that do decent lunchtime salad options.ReplyDelete
This is definitely my kinda quick & easy! If you're turning the oven on to do more than heat something frozen it doesn't count!ReplyDelete
Chicken less vegan wraps? I'd love to try that.ReplyDelete
Same. I have my staple meals I can pull together fast and repeat on riff's of each other. I don't think we have Trader Joe's in Canada, or at least maybe in the bigger cities -of which Canada has four.ReplyDelete
