A simple one pot meal we often go to on the road consists of olive oil or Ghee or butter for sautéed onions, adding various spices (Spanish or Mexican to Indian) then browning any chosen protein (beef, chicken, pork). After 3-8 minutes add some garlic to taste then add equal amounts liquid (broth or water) to rice. Or for pasta; you can continue to add more liquid as needed for tender pasta. We also add a variety of frozen vegetables when nearly done cooking.So, easy is most important here. I do not like cooking and that is an understatement. I’ll eat like I’m high with a severe case of munchies to avoid cooking. So easy is important. But cost, time, healthful and tasteful need to get mixed in to varying degrees. And cooked with gas.
What’s one of your favorite meals that you think check enough of these boxes?
It even can be a soup dish. The spices really make this a variable daily meal.
