Dinner shortcuts for vegetarians
We are all looking for dinner shortcuts and time-savers during our busy weeks, but we still want to make delicious, nutritious, homemade meals for our family. Here’s help.
Many strategic home cooks employ a strategy that we call “cook once, eat for days.” In this idea, you prep the main ingredient for several meals in one day, and then that main ingredient yields tasty — and easy — dinners for several more days. You can eat your “leftover” recipes a couple of days later and a couple of days after that, or freeze the primary component for quick future meals. Genius!
