Yes, we’re all in a hurry these days—and frazzled, and pressured, and stretched. But most of us, if we’re really honest about it, could spare 10 minutes. That’s why this meal plan is the only one you’ll need during the busy fall season. You guessed it: it’s called, 10-minute Meals.
And, you can truly prep these dinners—healthy, easy and delicious—in just 10 minutes.
Here are your top 10-in-10 recipes to rotate through over the weeks:
While you’re sipping your AM coffee, quickly put together Slow Cooker Curry Whole Chicken with Creamer Potatoes. Turmeric, coriander, and ginger simmer together all day with celery, onion and a jar of your favorite Butter Chicken curry sauce. The result: pull-apart tender chicken and Terrific Trio Creamers in a distinctively bright Indian curry sauce—and the enticing aroma wafting through the kitchen when you walk in the door after work.
Colorful, sharp and creamy-crunchy, Potatoes and Green Bean Salad is a vegetarian meal in one that’s on the light side. Add in canned garbanzo beans for legume power, if you like. Our Garlic Parsley Microwave Ready Creamers are done in five minutes. While they’re cooking, boil frozen green beans and corn to save time. Then combine and serve.
Substitute with our Microwave Ready Creamers to accelerate prep time for Sweet and Salty Potato Salad, a dish highlighting dueling flavors with parsley, dates, and peanuts. Stack the Creamers atop kale leaves (buy pre-washed) and pair with something grilled.
op everything into the Crockpot and go. Slow Cooker Sausage & Little Potatoes will stew while you’re at the office. You’ll love this filling combo with Cream of Mushroom soup and a dash of Cajun seasoning for a kick.
Traditional, simple and it goes with everything—what’s not to love? Try this take on The Classic Little Potato Salad: the “peas and carrots version.” That’s adding hardboiled eggs, peas, shredded carrot and a little red onion zip to Boomer Gold Creamers. Buy pre-shredded carrots and frozen peas to shave off minutes. Match with poached white fish fillets.
Tender inside, Crispy Potatoes with Vegan Ranch Dressing are as addictive as potato chips. Whip up the dressing from scratch or use bottled. This one goes well with BBQ’d burgers (tofu or beef) or hot dogs/vegan dogs. Add a side of baby carrot sticks and dinner is ready.
After Thanksgiving, utilize that leftover bird to make Slow Cooker Turkey & Potato Soup. Just sauté the turkey (leftovers or turkey burger), onion and garlic, then add everything to the Crock Pot and let the whole thing cook all day. Celery, rosemary, thyme, tomatoes and parsley will mingle to create a savory broth. Buttery Terrific Trio Creamers add nutrients, fiber, and substance to this dinner-in-a-bowl.
Easy Steak and Creamer Kabobs are a favorite because you just load and grill. Toss cubed steak in herbs and Worcestershire in a Ziploc, then stack on to skewers with precooked Garlic Parsley Microwave Ready Creamers and barbecue. We add on red, orange and yellow bell peppers and button mushrooms to round off the meal. If you can, prep the steak in the AM and let it marinade in the fridge all day to intensify flavors and grill when you’re ready to eat.
Open-face smoked salmon sandwiches spiked with red onion slivers, and tangy lemon are classic smörgåsbord. This one riffs by replacing bread with an herb-crusted Little Potato. A sophisticated Nordic-inspired appetizer, make Crispy Potato Bites with Smoked Salmon as something new and interesting for dinner. Serve warm over a bed of arugula or endive and garnish with a dollop of crème fraîche.
Fluffy and smooth, this is an autumn essential and cherished comfort food. Little Potatoes render this dish buttery and smooth versus gluey and gummy. Whip up 10 Minute Garlic Parsley Mashed Potatoes and pair with anything, really: we like a green salad mix, plus sautéed shrimp or scallops. The secret to this recipe is buttermilk and our Garlic Parsley Microwave Ready Creamers. Double the amount on a Monday and enjoy again with Wednesday’s dinner. Easy!
