Ideas for quick cooks

Sometimes you’re in the mood for a lighter meal. Sometimes you have somewhere else to go, so you want something easy to prepare. And sometimes, well, you just don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. 

What you need is some ideas for a quick dinner. Here are a few from our test kitchen:

Salads are healthy, versatile, and super-simple. Top one off with some canned tuna or salmon, and you’ve got a protein-rich meal that’s ready in minutes.

Grilling makes cooking easy because most grilled foods cook in minutes, and there’s little to clean up afterwards.

Perhaps the easiest dinner is the one you prepare before. Pasta sauces, casseroles, and soups freeze well, and don’t require a lot of work to make ready.

Think seafood. Canned salmon and tuna, canned mussels, crab and clams, smoked oysters—all have loads of flavour, all are good for you, and all can be prepared in very little time.
