My easiest recipes ever have been a long time in the making. Nine months and then some to be exact! These simple, but incredibly delicious ideas are all things I ate during my pregnancy and continue to make in my everyday mom life because they’re that easy. I know so because I’m able to whip them up while baby snoozes or during those precious wake windows (only moms will get that!) Either way, everyone needs meals they can throw together in around 30 minutes and I guarantee these ideas will become regular staples for you too.
There’s plenty of Asian inspiration here from Japanese okonomiyaki to kimchi fried rice to my go-to noodle bowl. Asian eats are always what I crave, and I’m mad hungry as a breastfeeding mom! I’ll also show you how to make Korean veggie pancakes and air-fried teriyaki tofu sushi bowls. There’s a recipe for a quick couscous with sauced up portobellos, tomato miso butter spaghetti, as well as a sheet pan quesadilla—it’s an internet hack that’s worth the 2 sheet pans! I haven’t forgotten super swift sweets either. Both offerings are chocolate based so take your pick! I would choose both of them personally. Chocolate cereal bark is really kid-friendly, while us sophisticated foodies can satisfy our sweet tooth with chocolate banana bites in 3 scrumptious flavors.
I hope you can use these recipes from now until the end of time to get meals on the table quickly and efficiently leaving more time to do what brings you joy. Coincidentally for me, that’s cooking, so you’re welcome!Lauren Toyota
