The 5 Minute Gourmet #Introduction
Introducing our New Series, The 5 Minute Gourmet.
I know many of you are as busy as we are. It leaves little time to spend in the kitchen.
Well, what if you had the right recipes so that your kitchen time was minimal, but your food choices and the taste was amazing and healthy?
Enter, the 5 Minute Gourmet. Check out our Facebook page for new episodes.
I like eating good food. I love to cook. These days I have no time to cook, but I still want to eat well.
I have developed an amazing set of meal plans for myself and my family to eat well and absolutely minimize the time we spend in the kitchen.
No, we don’t pay someone else to prep our meals. I would love to do this and just not have to spend any time in the kitchen. Even though I love to cook, I like having time to work out and to be with my wife kids even more.
But even if someone else prepped our meals, we would still have to heat them up and wash the dishes.
The techniques I have been using takes about the same amount of time as if someone else prepped our meals. That’s how fast they are.
One of my favorite is blended vegetables.
I love vegetables. I understand the health benefits of eating a lot of vegetables. I would love to eat an entire head of broccoli. But I can’t because after eating a third of the cooked head of broccoli I’m just tired of eating broccoli. I still want to get all those phytonutrients and get in my 5-10 servings of vegetables a day!
I solved this in a way that allows me to eat way more broccoli, or any other vegetable, than I usually would be able to do and it tastes better too.
You can do this with virtually any vegetable. I have used broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, carrots, bok choy, kale, spinach, and combinations of all of those.
Here’s how you do it.
Grab your veggies. Fresh, frozen, canned, whatever.
Boil or steam them.
Drain the water and dump the veggies into your blender, or Bullet, or food processor.
Add some butter.
Add anything else that will make you enjoy them even more.
I usually add turmeric, apple cider vinegar, and butter.
You could add curry, hot sauce, olive oil, the sky’s the limit.
Dump them out onto your plate. By the way, there’s a hack for cooking sweet potatoes that makes them fit right in to the 5 minute gourmet toolbox. Stay tuned.
Add salt and/or pepper.
