New ideas for simple/easy to make/healthy dinners?
Posted 05 December 2010 - 06:51 PM
So what are some dinner things you make that are quick and easy to make but also healthy and delicious? I need some new ideas and recipes. It's fine if it takes a while to cook, but I'd rather not have to mess with tons of different ingredients and lots of bowls and pans and stuff to wash...just some simple meals I can easily make (or that I can train the husband to easily make).

And lentils are my new favorite thing. I had no idea they were so easy and yummy.

or get chicken breasts on the bone - use a premade marinade or olive oil coating and spice rub - 350 F for about 35-40 min - great step by step here if you want to crisp the skin first (I usually remove it and don't eat it so I don't bother) http://www.chow.com/...=post-54292;rfc serve with some steamed broccoli/ carrots/ green beans/ spinach etc
chicken sausage , white bean and spinach (or swiss chard) soup - cut up sausage into little bites - pan fry it with some garlic and onions - once its browned add 2 boxes of low sod chicken broth, the beans and the spinach (washed and ripped into smaller pieces or use baby) let come to a simmer and serve (you can also add a pasta to the soup)

ratatouille is great for the winter months - can make it in one big p*t - serve over yellow or long grain rice
or chili - easy one-p*t cooking...

another fave of mine is yellow split pea. I make it unhealthy by adding pancetta to it.....but you can keep it healthy
both yummy and healthy. minus the pork...
I also made chicken with mushrooms in a white wine sauce.....also yummers.

Top Round Steak thinly sliced
4 tablespoons Soy sauce(approximate I just pur it for a couple seconds) too much will make it too salty
2 Table spoons seaseme oil(approx) basically half as much as soy sauce
2 inch ginger chopped
2 cloves garlic chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar
toasted seasme seeds
green onions chopped
Marinate beef in soy, seasme oil, garlic, ginger and brown sugar for at least 30 minutes.
Stir fry steak (it's thin so don't over cook)
Add seasme seeds and green onions for final minute
Serve over rice
