Sometimes You Just Need A Quick Solution
Written by Gayle
I've always worked hard to make sure my family has healthy meals, and that often means lots of work. But there are lots of times when there just isn't enough, well, time to put into a home-cooked meal.
With all of the sports and music lessons and other activities at our household, there were times when I was tempted to make toast and call it dinner.
Luckily, we have lots of solutions here at Lassen's for the time-crunch with which most families struggle. From frozen burritos and pizzas to our house-made soups and other hot items from our deli you can find lots of fast and easy meals. But here is one of my favorite simple solutions--
Seeds of Change Simmer Sauces
We love Indian food! These sauces make what can be very complicated cuisine into something easy. I always have a couple of jars of these in my pantry.
Simply saute some chicken, beef, fish, or tofu until done, add a jar of the sauce and simmer for 10 minutes. I usually roast some vegetables like asparagus or green beans (shown here with some pine nuts), and with some rice we have a complete meal. I throw some chopped cilantro on the Takka Masala, just because I love the stuff! (Add raisins to the Korma Sauce--it's delicious!)
Even without the meat or tofu, you can have a very tasty dinner! And you can serve this meal within about 20-30 minutes, start to finish.
So look for quick time-saving meal options, like Seeds of Change Simmer Sauces, next time you're at Lassen's!
Have a great dinner tonight!
