You can make this in 10 mins- I was at Costco and bought these 3 things-
Potato and Spinach Pierogies, Korean Gondre Herb Rice and precooked Beets
I pan fried the Pierogies with avocado oil over medium heat, covered, 4 minutes on each side with a splash of water in the last minute to steam and soften a bit.
The Rice was heated in microwave. Beets sliced and served cold. It was deliciously simple!
You might think this is cheating because I did not make everything from scratch. But it is still higher quality food than fast food, and you know the ingredients. This meal not as expensive as restaurant food, saves time because a trip to restaurant takes more time than you think, and finally you can certainly have food delivered but there is an energy carbon foot print cost to that if it is a gasoline powered car (plus some electric car depending on how the electricity is generated). The amount of foods that I bought is enough for several meals too.
