Easy healthy recipes and tips for beans, grains, cereals, pasta, vegetables, tofu - how to cook, use and combine simple recipes in delicious meals.
Once you know how to cook these basic recipes, more complicated recipes are easy, because they're just a collection of simple recipes.
Make basic recipes for grains and beans every few days or once a week to store in the freezer for making quick easy meals.
Shop weekly for basic foods to make quick salads, smoothies, sandwiches, soups and stir fries. E.G. canned foods, condiments, frozen veggies, fruit, bread and tortillas, greens & salad fixings, basic veggies like carrots, potatoes, celery, onion, garlic, mushrooms.
Thaw some chickpeas and make a batch of Slightly Garlicky Hummus for sandwiches and wraps.
If your recipe calls for cooked rice, as in Simple Fried Rice, or Mediterranean Rice Salad, instead of saying, "Forget it!" you'll be OK, because you know how to cook rice. Or you'll already have some cooked rice waiting in the fridge.
Store cooked tofu in the fridge for a sandwich or wrap to take for lunch the next day or two.
