If you haven’t had time to go shopping and cobwebs are starting to grow in your pantry or fridge, don’t worry because you won’t be able to stay without dinner. There will be something in your fridge or pantry that can solve the emergency. Although we cannot guess what food you have, we hope that you have at least these three ingredientsor similar alternatives.
The best resource to make dinner quickly and impromptu is pull pan. No oven, no microwave, no air fryer. This is because the pan allows you to adjust the preparation of the food by eye. In addition, it is usually fast, cheap and the result is much tastier.
This time, we are going to need a vegetable, cheese and a bit of ham or similar. From there, we can add what we want and in the amounts we need. However, if you are not very creative, you can try a wild recipe like this zucchini pan with cheese and ham..
It is a simple, fast, nutritious and delicious dinner that, in addition, can be light if we control ourselves with cheese or use a low-fat variety. We can even replace it with a vegetable version.
The zucchini can also be exchanged for another vegetable (aubergine, peas, green beans, broccoli or cauliflower florets, artichokes, mushrooms, mushrooms…) you can even take advantage of combining several that you have by getting poached.
As regards the ham, it will suffice with a little touch of Iberian or a good serrano. By reducing the fat, it will provide a lot of flavor and protein. However, we can exchange it for cooked ham, peeled frozen prawns, leftover roast chicken, etc.
In the case of vegans, they can add cubes of tofu or seitan, some crunchy chickpeas, nuts, textured soy… Or we can simply serve the zucchini with a portion of hummus. A touch of pepper, fresh herbs, chili flakes, lemon zest, fried onion… or nothing else, and we’ll have dinner ready in 15 minutes.
