I’ve been trying to break out of my dinner rut and actually “prepare” dinner during the week, as opposed to always re-heating dishes made from my weekend bulk cooking. I’m finding a hybrid approach is working best for me.
The other night I reheated a bowl of Quinoa-Millet and Veggies to serve as a side dish and then built a meal around it. I roasted asparagus by simply drizzling a little avocado oil over the spears and tossing them with fresh garlic. I baked them on 425 degrees F for about 8 minutes (you want them bright green and still crunchy so don’t over-roast). While the asparagus was roasting I sautéed cubed seitan in veggie broth (homemade!), onion, cardamom and cinnamon–the smell was positively divine–on medium high for three minutes and then covered and simmered for five minutes.
In less than 20 minutes we enjoyed this tasty meal.
Do you have under-20 minute dinner ideas?
