just isn’t enough time to cook. Turn to simple, flavorful dishes to help
complete your meal plan.
Gobble up this
tasty take on good ol’ pasta salad! In a pan with 3 tablespoons olive oil,
sauté 3 cloves garlic (minced) and 1 small onion (cubed). Once the onions are
translucent, add 1 head broccoli (chopped) and pepper. Drizzle more olive oil
cover the vegetables if the pan is dry. Turn off heat and toss in 300 grams
cooked farfalle pasta. Add 110 grams crumbled feta cheese and 1 tablespoon red
wine vinegar. Transfer to individual bowls and serve. Serves 5 to 6.
Make this Mexican
fave at home! In a bowl, mix 3 small tomatoes (cubed), 1 medium green bell
pepper (diced), 1 (425-gram) can whole corn kernels, and 1 (140-gram) bottle
green olives (pitted and minced). Season to taste. Transfer mixture to a large
skillet or frying pan; combine with 3½ cups cooked white rice and cook over
medium-high heat until tomato mixture is thoroughly incorporated into rice. Add
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese and mix until melted. Add 3 teaspoons chili powder
for a spicy Tex-Mex kick! Serves 4 to 5.
The next time
you’re entertaining guests at home, whip up an effortless party appetizer.
Slice a French baguette into 5 1-inch-thick slices; toast for 3 minutes. Place
5 slices raclette cheese in the microwave and nuke for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Pour cheese over toasted baguette slices and sprinkle with a dash of cayenne
pepper for some heat. Best served when melted sheese is still warm. Serves 3 to
Bruschetta in a snap!
Craving for a
sweet snack? A fruit salad is a healthy and delicious choice! To make this easy
yet elegant side dish, drain 1 (836-gram) can tropical fruit cocktail and
divide between 2 serving glasses. Pour half the amount of 1 (125-gram)
container flavored yogurt (we used Nestle Buco-Nata Delight) over each serving
glass. Garnish with mint leaves. Serves 2.
