Fast Roast Chorizo with Hot Feta & Veg RECIPE HERE
Afew months ago I had a big mindset change with my cooking. It started when I decided to make my life easier by using my own Soupstones Meal Plans every week.
Now I use my simple recipes for our mid-week dinners. Then on the weekends, when I have more time, I explore my cookbooks for inspiration.
On the surface it may seem like a little thing, but having this clear division of the types of meals I’m cooking for different parts of the week has been really liberating.
And the surprising thing is, how delicious and satisfying my 5-ingredient dinners are. You’d think they would pale in comparison to our more elaborate weekend feasts, but they really hold their own.
Yay for simple meals!
4 Reasons to Love Simple Cooking
1. Tastes Great!
It still amazes me how delicious food can taste when you cut back on the number of ingredients and let your produce ‘speak’ (err taste?) for itself.
Fancy restaurant meals with layers and layers of flavour are lovely, but I also love to ‘wow’ my taste buds with the beauty of simple ingredients.
2. Easier to Prepare.
A blessing for us home cooks who don’t have an army of ‘sous chefs’ to do our washing and chopping. OR hours to spend getting Tuesday night dinner ready.
3. Less Cleanup!
Less ingredients to put away. Less dishes to wash. Worth it for this benefit alone!
4. More Flexibility.
People often say how much they love the ‘variations’ I include at the bottom of my recipes because it allows them to make changes to suit their own tastes and dietary requirements.
One of the biggest reasons I can do this is because my recipes are so simple. It’s easy to know what will happen if you change a particular ingredient.
