Too Tired to Cook? Here’s the four best dinner hacks
Hard-boil some eggs for quick consumption
Eggs are a fantastic source of many vitamins and minerals and can save you plenty of time in the kitchen. Boil a batch of eggs and then save in the fridge for up to a week for a speedy egg salad sandwiches or a quick snack.
Get your grill on
Grilled vegetables have far more taste than those done quickly in the microwave. To save time on school nights, grill a batch of vegetables at the weekend and portion up into freezer bags to use quickly during the week.
Making frozen pasta sauce – minus the preservatives
Make some tomato-based pasta sauce from scratch and then freeze dinner-size portions in freezer bags. When you want to use it, thaw and warm in the microwave while boiling the pasta and – voilà – a perfectly timed match made in heaven.
