In an effort to eat less frozen/super processed food, I'm collecting "oops, I forgot about dinner" emergency backup meals.

To qualify, a meal should be one I can cook in <45 minutes without getting groceries (so, using either non-perishable ingredients or ones I'm likely to have at home)

So far, I've come up with: shaksusha
pasta + tomato sauce + frozen vegetables
burrito bowls
stir fry/fried rice
mac & cheese (not from a box–that wouldn't count)

Do any of y'all have other suggestions?


@codesections Bean stew. Cans of whatever mix of beans and lentils you have around + canned tomatoes + seasoned with herbs. Serve with crusty bread or rice.
