If there’s a step below low-effort cooking, short of the food cooking itself, that’s what I tend to do. But I also don’t like food that tastes like cardboard, or the additives in a lot of processed foods, which are sure tickets to migraines.
Last night, I had butternut squash ravioli, and I didn’t know what to put on it. So I made the most ridiculously easy sauce ever. Ready?
I microwaved about a cup of Western-Style frozen vegetables (corn, onion, green and red peppers all conveniently diced. Well, except the corn, of course). Frozen vegetables are one of the best things ever for a lazy cook who likes healthy food.
I dumped the veggies into my Magic Bullet, added a very light drizzle of olive oil (you can add more if you like it) salt, pepper, a splash of vinegar (lemon juice would work, but I didn’t have any) and some water. You could also add broth if you are so inclined.
I blended it. It was too chunky, so I added more water.
