I bet we all feel the same when we come home after a long day at work...
We can't be bothered cooking!
But then we don't want to waste money (and increase our waists) on unhealthy takeaway food.
The answer to this is quick and simple everyday meals, that don't take you more than 20 minutes to prepare! Even the local Chinese place can't beat that time! ;)
One of my simple and quick meals I threw together recently is a healthy, vegetarian, taco flavoured bolognese, which I served in pitta breads. It seriously didn't take more than 20 minutes, and the ingredients were really cheap as well.
All you need for this yummy everyday dish is:
Taco spice mix
(and potentially salsa, depending on how spicy you want it)
It's obviously up to you if you want to serve it with anything else on the side.
Start off by frying your Quorn mince (from frozen) in some cooking oil. Do this for a few minutes, then add the sweetcorn.
Stir in the taco spice mix and the chopped tomatoes next, and let it simmer for 10 minutes or so. Add salsa if you think this Mexican inspired bolognese needs to be a bit spicier.
I chose to serve my taco bolognese in pittas with some plain lettuce, grated cheese, and sour cream on the side. You can also opt for salsa, or even chopped up avocado.
And here's the finished result! Not a gourmet dinner, but definitely good enough for a weekday evening when all you want is "fast food".
