5 Recipes You (Probably) Don’t Need to Shop For
Avoiding the grocery store never sounded so good! If you’re like many Americans right now, you might not have showered or brushed your hair or changed out of your pajamas today. No Judgement! But it probably also means you’re looking to curb your hunger without leaving your fortress of solitude. We get it! That’s why we’ve curated these 5 recipes you (probably) don’t have to shop for. Enjoy!
Angel Hair Pasta
Practically everyone has pasta noodles stuffed in the back of their pantry. With this simple angel hair pasta recipe (that really works with any type of pasta noodle, don’t worry), you’ll be enjoying italian in no time. Simply cook the noodles, strain, and add butter, salt, pepper, parmigiano cheese, and dried oregano to taste. And that’s it! Simple and delicious.
There’s a good chance those rock hard avocados you bought two weeks ago are finally ready to eat. There really is no simpler or more delicious way to put them to use than in avocado toast. The basic ingredients are toast and avocado. From there, you have nearly limitless options! Mix up garlic, tomato, onion, and a spritz of lime for a Mexican flare, or add some cheese and a fried egg for a healthy and filling breakfast. Try arugula, cherry tomatoes, and parmesan cheese for a medaterannian influence. If you’ve got veggies in your fridge, there’s a pretty good chance you can work them into your avocado toast!
This American classic really hits the spot on lazy spring days. Mix it up by spreading mayo instead of butter to grill the bread (some find it makes a crisper, crunchier sandwich). If you’ve got it, you can fancy this sandwich up by using mozzarella cheese and spreading a layer of pesto inside. You can also add lunch meat or bacon to your sandwich to make it a little weightier. Of course, no matter what you put inside, you’re probably going to want to pair that sandwich with a bowl of tomato soup for the full culinary experience.
Another highly customizable dish, grain bowls can have almost anything in them! The typical structure of a grain bowl is generally: grain, vegetable, protein. Grains can be quinoa, rice, farro, etc. Next, pile on vegetables of your choice, like broccoli, bell pepper, onion, summer squash, spinach, sweet potatoes, or whatever you’ve got! Protein can be chicken, fish, beef, pork, eggs, beans, tofu...you get the idea. You can also make this a sweet treat by using oatmeal, fruit, and avocado for your protein. You could eat a grain bowl every day for weeks and not eat the same bowl twice, if you’re creative enough!
Loaded Sweet Potato
Sweet potatoes are healthy, delicious, and have an incredibly long shelf life, making them the perfect grocery store avoidance food. Plus, there’s so many ways to dress them up - sweet, savory, vegan, meat lovers, and everything in between! For an easy, traditional loaded sweet potato, bake your potato in the microwave for 8-10 minutes. Load it with anything you want! Chicken and pan-cooked veggies is a classic option, or go for a healthy taco theme with ground beef, sautéd bell peppers and onions, and top it with salsa and plain greek yogurt or sour cream. If you’d rather have something sweet, slice your sweet potato into big chunks, brush it with honey and cinnamon, and throw it in the oven on 425 for about 45 minutes. You can also try chili powder or pumpkin pie spice!
