Broccoli

  • You will need:
  • 10 minutes
  • microwave and a stove
  • Broccoli florets (steam-in bag of frozen ones is the easiest)
  • grape tomatoes
  • black olives
  • garlic, salt, and oil
  • Optional: red onion (shallot even better), pepper, grated cheese, pine nuts.
Broccoli is not too bad, if you add something with a strong taste to it. If you\'re using frozen florets, follow instructions on the bag to microwave it. If you\'re using fresh whole broccoli, boil it. However, don\'t stop there. Transfer your broccoli to a saucepan with oil or melted butter, and add at least some salt, pepper, a lot of garlic, and any of the following: fresh tomatoes, olives, capers, pine nuts, grated cheese. Fry for about 5 minutes, serve hot.

Healthy yet simple sandwiches and snacks, both traditional and rather unusual. A few of these require a stove or a microwave, to pre-cook ingredients, but most can be done without either. Feel free to experiment with different kinds of bread: rye, pumpernickel, pita, focaccia, etc.

Soups and salads provide a good balance of protein, vegetables, and carbs, and are extra easy to make. Most of these can be fixed in under 15 minutes.
