Okay there was a thread which said that cooking from scratch takes longer which is true for some things but what happens if you are in a rush, or in late and you need food now! Even a pizza in a packet takes 20 mins start to finish, so what can be cooked from scratch in that time or thereabouts? Just think we must have a few recipes between us to help out those who need some ideas.
My standby for quick food is pasta with a sauce and I made one the other day.
Bacon and Sausage Creamy pasta
Fry an onion, pepper, bacon, sausage and some garlic (optional what to add at this stage) until nearly cooked then...
Add pasta to boiling water
Add stock cube or stock powder to frying pan, or herbs for a less processed dish, options could include basil, dried celery leaf, marjoram, oregano - that type of thing and some dried mushrooms if you have them.
Add a tablespoon of flour or smaller spoon of cornflour mixed with water
Add boiling water and let simmer for a while
Add cream - or as I do the top of the milk but then I have unpasteurised whole milk or just add milk and make sure it is thickened enough
When thickened and pasta cooked combine and serve.
All ready in 20 mins.
Fry onion, garlic, mushrooms, lardons in olive oil for a few mins. Add box passata, veg stock cube, tomato purÃ©e, whatever herb you fancy, a cup or so of water and enough rice for as many as you are cooking for. Let it bubble until rice is cooked adding more boiling water if needed. Sometimes I also add red kidney beans in chilli sauce. Very tasty quick supper and a mainstay in this house. Doesn't usually take more than 20 mins
Fry onion, garlic, mushrooms, lardons in olive oil for a few mins.
At that point start boiling some pasta.
Add creme fraiche and grated cheese to the onion mix.
When pasta done and onion mix has thickened combine.
This is my fall back carbonara'ish dish, I sometimes do it with spaghetti
I have reached an age where my train of thought often leaves the station without me...
Can always rely on csh folks to provide recipes!
Isn't that an illness Kate, binge eating maybe!
Just thought, it takes a while to remove the annoying Sellotape round a tin of Celebrations, probably about 20 mins so does that count?
Somehow I don't think you lot are taking this seriously
I was hoping for some wondrous quick recipes from you all
There are a few here but as most of are retired we have more time for cooking! Sorry to all who still work! Well actually I work just as hard now but in my own time so I always allow time for cooking.
