Not a Minute to Lose?

15 minute meals recipes

Ready-to-use or prepared vegetables, whether frozen or canned, have certain advantages. They are practical, they don’t go bad quickly, and they are available all year long. Moreover, they retain most of the nutritional value of raw vegetables. In practice, plain packaged vegetables are perfect for all your recipes: a mix of frozen vegetables can be cooked quickly in a frying pan or microwave with the sauce of your choice (cream, butter, olive oil, curry, herbs, spices, etc.). You can also play with complementarity and mix up your choices: prepare frozen green beans by boiling them and serve them with canned baby carrots, sprinkled with fresh herbs. To make your vegetables more visually appealing, you can add color by adding aromatic herbs, very colorful vegetables, or even fruit!

A little inspiration?

If you don’t really feel like cooking, there are a few quick things that will delight your taste buds:

  • Mix a can of green peas with corn to make a colorful and original dish.
  • Sweat some frozen vegetables in a frying pan with a little olive oil and some olives.
  • Make a colorful and original mix of frozen crushed carrots and one or two potatoes or frozen crushed fennel with two or three potatoes.
  • Prepare a bowl of rice with a handful of frozen green peas to add color and energy.
  • Empty a can of vegetable ratatouille at the bottom of a dish, sprinkle with grated cheese and broil it.
