Recently I made a post about just throwing together dinner. Here’s another dish I made one night when I got home late and was tired.
I started with boiling some potatoes and after 10 minutes I added a steamer of broccoli on top of the potatoes and cooked it an additional 5 minutes. At the same time I pan-fried one clove of minced garlic and a chopped sweet pepper in a bit of olive oil over low heat. After I drained the potatoes and broccoli I added them to the pan along with salt and some smoky Hungarian paprika and turned up the heat to get rid of excess water and to brown the potatoes a little.
It was not bad for a quick and unplanned meal. If I’d wanted some protein I could have tossed a few nuts in, but I’d snacked earlier on baba ghanoush so I thought it was fine as it was. The entire meal took less than 30 minutes to prepare.
