20 minutes upwards, depending on what and whether I get distracted.
Some of our staples are:
Squash and blue cheese risotto
I use about 3/4 of a cup of a regular pasta sauce from the store, some diced onion, a dash of balsamic, some wine and water as needed.
Throw in some chopped mushrooms or spinach or whatever.
About 35 minutes
Bell peppers stuffed with a Mediterranean pilaf type thing
About a cup of cubed fresh whole squash, seeded and peeled.
Squash is sauteed in wine and stock from paste until it's tender, then mashed
Added to rice with diced onion, more wine, some vege stock from paste and a bit of grated parmesan.
Stir blue cheese through before serving.
About 50 minutes
Rice, beans, sundried tomatoes, chopped walnuts, olives, oregano, salt and pepper.
Then it's spooned into halved peppers that roasted while I sauteed
Top with blue cheese crumbles, and baked more until the cheese browns a little.
About 45 minutes
Puree up some onion with a bit of chipotle in adobo from a jar, some cumin, cilantro, oregano, pepper, salt.
Throw in a pot with canned beans and about a cup of water and a bay leaf, boil until saucy beans happen.
Cook rice, drain, stir in lime juice and olive oil.
Slice up some onion and bell peppers. Sautee them with oregano, salt and pepper until browned.
Make guacamole, thaw some corn, cut up some lettuce and tomato.
Chop potatoes, par cook and then shallow fry until golden.
Heat oil with ginger paste and ground cinnamon, fennel, chili, clove and cardamom.
Throw in potatoes, coat, stir in coconut milk and some water, stir until thickened.
About 40 minutes.
I cheat and use a sauce from the store on whatever veggies I have around.
About 30 minutes.
Ginger and black pepper stirfry
