Quick Supper Idea for the cook in a rush
Do you often find yourself unable to come up with a quick supper idea? Cooking for yourself is generally healthier and cheaper than eating out, but it can be hard to come up with ideas.
Just by looking at this article you should have no problem coming up with some quick supper ideas.
Make some stew. Certainly not the fastest, but nothing could be easier and you can eat on it for days. Chopped onions and garlic simmered in olive oil is a great base for almost any stew. Once the onions are translucent you can add in some meat and spices. Stir it up and cook until the meat is well-cooked. Finally, chop up add whatever vegetables you have around the house and simmer the whole mixture until the vegetables are tender.
Meat and two vegetables. This is the most basic meal combination. It’s perfect because it’s easy to cook and healthy.
First you’ll want to cook the meat. Whatever meat you go with, make sure to add a few spices. Salt an pepper work fine if you don’t have anything else. After that just toss it on a skillet and cook over medium heat in olive oil, coconut oil, or butter.
Vegetables. Preparing vegetables can be tougher because it is highly dependent on what vegetable you are cooking. I find that googling “name of vegetable” + recipe is a reliable way to find some recipes and ideas. If nothing else, you are probably fine boiling whatever vegetable it is. Boiling is easy, thought not always the most tasty way to make vegetables.
In order to avoid having to come up with quick supper ideas in the future, try some of these tips to keep yourself ahead of the curve.
1. Schedule your meals ahead of time. Take some time to plan out what you are going to eat for the next few days and take that list to the supermarket. That way you only buy what you are going to eat (saving money) and have things ahead of time.
2. Cook everything in advance. Anytime you make food, make at least double what you think is needed for that meal. Personally I usually cook triple or quadruple so that I have lots of leftovers. You can combine leftovers from various meals to keep food combinations new without having to always be cooking.
It shouldn’t be hard to think of a quick supper idea, and with these tips, it isn’t! Just follow the plan outlined here and you’ll be chowing down before you know it.
