I agree with the suggestion to check out SparkRecipes. Under Quick Links on the right sidebar of your page, you'll see a link to that site.

Hope that helps,

The recipe portion of the sp websites has lots of that would fit into that criteria.

But what the hell... What can be easier and quicker than a stir-fry for a new cook. Yes, I'm assuming due to your question that you are a new cook.

Stir-fry for 1 person.

Take 50-100 grams of your protein of choice. Chicken, beef, tofu I suppose if you want to... And a similar amount of mushrooms. Cut into small bite size strips or bits.

Cut 25 grams each of the following into match stick sized pieces. Carrot, celery, green beans, onion, peppers. Or pick some other veg you like to make up about 100-150 grams of veg - depending on how hungry you are and what's in the cupboard.

Finely chop 1 clove of garlic and about the same amount of optional ginger. Ditto chillies.

Put one portion of rice or noodles on the boil.

In a small bowl stir together 0.5 tbsp each of soy sauce, honey, and sesame seeds. Add a small glug of white or cider vinegar, or a larger glug of lemon juice.
Dip your finger in to have a taste if you've gotten the salt-sweet-sour balance right. Adjust as needed.

Put about 1 tsp of vegetable oil in a pan, heat up. When hot toss in your protein. Let it have a few minutes to gain some colour and to be cooked through if the choice of protein is chicken.

Toss in the mushrooms and veg. Give them a few minutes. Pour over the sauce. Give the whole thing a couple of minutes to mingle.

Drain your rice / noodles.

Combine stir-fry and starch on a plate, or a bowl, or if you're saving on washing up and no one's looking, one of the cooking vessels. Eat.

I am not a vegetarian, but I could be if I had to be. I love veggies and very picky about meats. Please give me some yummy recipes to make. I like chicken, but don't buy it that often, so just mostly give me a ton of veggie options if possible. I am tired of frozen meals and boring food. Also, please let the recipes be easy and cheap. Thanks!!
