5 minute meals

Being a newbie mom means that I have to learn to do chores in a really fast manner. I take a bath in 10 minutes, wash the dishes in 3 minutes, and prepare meals in 5. I didn't always have the speed skill, so I had to learn to do these things while taking care of the little boy.

Here are some easy to prepare meals I've learned to whip up in a flash:

The Veggie Salad with Nuts

I am a big fan of salads. This one I made with lettuce, carrots, cheese, and Nagaraya nuts (you read that right!) and mayo and ketchup (and some salt and pepper) dressing. I can eat this everyday, and actually feel full for several hours with just two servings. This one goes well with buffalo wings too! But then, that takes a long time to prepare. :)

Sauteed Bean Sprout

I love toge (bean sprout)! This one's really easy to prepare. Just saute onion, garlic, tomatoes and bean sprout and season with oyster sauce. Toss a little, then you're done. I like it better when the toge's still crunchy so it's better to cook it really fast :D

Buttered Veggie

I was craving for bok choy, which my sister got me from Singapore pa, so hubby bought Baguio pechay instead. Because we were having pork for dinner, I wanted some veggies to go with it. I melted butter and threw in the Baguio pechay, seasoned with garlic powder and voila! Buttered veggie in less than 5 minutes. I can eat this every day too, I love butter and veggies together :) 

These are just a few of my experiments that don't take much time to cook. I'll post some more when I come up with some more recipes :)


  1. wow, andami mo ng alam! sana matutunan ko din yan! kawawa magiging asawa ko kung puro fast food. hehe:P

  2. mapipilitan ka ding matuto pag anjan ka na, hihi. basta ang pinaka-basic sa lahat ay pag-gisa, madali na lang matutunan yung iba :)
