Dressing Up Convenience Food

Let's face it, sometimes cooking on the week nights is a real drag. There's too much to do -- rush home from work, pick up the kids at school, homework, household chores... the list seomtimes feels endless.

On those crazy nights I like to dress up veggie convenience food for a tastey quick dinner. Pre-packaged grain mixes are a great place to start. One of my favorite combinations is Thai rice paired with pan seared tofu and topped with green onions, cilantro, Thai basil, chili sauce and a squeeze of fresh lime juice (see photo). You might like Spanish rice topped with pinto beans, diced onions and hot sauce or even a 7-grain pilaf with tempeh. The combinations are endless -- and dinner can be on the table in 30 minutes without much prep work at all. Pick up some boxed mixes and store them in your pantry for your next wild night!
