My husband and I work late several nights a week, and often come home wiped out too tired to cook a big meal. As much as I love to cook big healthy meals, sometimes you just need a little help from the store.
A really easy way to get something on the table quickly is to whip up a one-pot dish. Many times I just take what we have in our fridge, and make what I call a "skillet hash". We will usually have a lot of veggies in our fridge that we need to use, and maybe some leftover rice or quinoa from another night. I saute everything together and maybe add in some eggs or beans at the end to bring in some protein. Season it up with your seasoning of choice and BAM you have yourself a really good dinner in about 15 minutes.
Here's one we did the other night. I used a frozen quinoa dish from Trader Joes, and added in more sweet potatoes, kale, peas, and carrots, and sauteed everything in some ghee (clarified butter). Once the veggies are soft make four little pockets for the eggs and add them in to the skillet. We like our eggs a bit runny so I let them go for about 5 minutes. I think it took all of 15-20 minutes to get this on the table, and it was awesome!
