Try these innovative strategies for economical, quick, easy dinner recipes!
So often, when we think of quick, easy dinner recipes, we think of meals we can prepare from beginning to end in 30 minutes or less after arriving home. In order to be quick and easy, most often such meals involve broiling or nuking a piece of meat, with a side of rice or baked potatoes and perhaps a salad. The convenience afforded with these meals comes with a trade off many of us can no longer afford. It’s far more expensive than dishes requiring longer prep time, such as fried rice enchiladas or stuffed bell peppers. Most dishes which are economical require lots of prep time, chopping veggies, dicing meat or scrambling eggs. Here’s a strategy that reduces your prep and cleanup time, while serving dishes that are tasty, economical and form the basis of truly quick, easy dinner recipes.
