Unless you’re lucky enough to have a private chef or an obliging wife (or husband) prepping your evening meal every night (and, let’s face it, they’re like hen’s teeth these days), you’re going to need to develop some smarts around cooking your evening meal. Fresh, easy and simple dinners are the order of the day.
Yep, sure you could outsource dinner to a local takeaway, and there are times when this is absolutely an wonderful fix but, in my view, it should be just that: a quick fix when you have absolutely no other options.
With a soupçon of planning and a dash of cunning you can ensure that: a) you mostly do have other options; and b) those options don’t take a huge amount of time and effort, meaning that you can wow your wife / girlfriend / family with your culinary nous whilst also getting on with other, more important tasks.
So far, so good. Almost too good to be true, huh?
Well, not necessarily. Enter the ‘One Pot Wonder’, an entire meal that uses only a solitary cooking vessel (so minimising washing up) and yet still manages to be delicious, hearty and impressive.
As an added bonus the one pot wonder frees up 25-30 minutes for you to do a quick bodyweight or kettlebell workout or (for maximum kudos and possible reward later on) massage Super Tired Mum’s feet.
Here are five of my favourites. Try them out.
