5 Easy No Cook Meals
Roast Beef & Cheddar Roll-Ups.
This is a family favorite amongst children and adults alike! Take a large, flour tortilla and spread a thin layer of cream cheese over it. Once the cream cheese is spread, layer the tortilla with lettuce, roast beef and cheese. Then, roll up your tortilla and you have an easy no cook meal rolled into perfection. The great part about this recipe is that you can replace roast beef with any lunch meat you like, along with a different cheeses to spice up the meal.
White Bean & Avocado Club.
Who doesn’t love beans and avocados? If you’re a lover of these, then this is the meal for you. Grab 2 slices of your favorite bread, preferably multi-grain. In a medium bowl, combine white beans, olive oil, salt, and pepper; then roughly mash them together, mixing everything well. Spread the mixture onto your bread, then layer with onions, avocado, sprouts and cucumber. Finally, place the other slice of bread on top and you are finished. This is a high-protein sandwich that will send your creativity and productivity skyrocketing!
Turkey Salad with Tomato & Avocado.
This is a great substitute for those who are on low-carb or no-carb diets. Simply take lettuce, turkey, tomatoes, avocado, onion and parmesan and layer it in a bowl. In a smaller bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Drizzle this light dressing over the salad and enjoy this easy no cook meal.
Spicy Tuna Wrap.
Just because you’re creating easy meals with minimal cooking doesn’t mean they have to taste bland without some spice and zing! In this meal, the only thing you will have to cook is the rice. Just combine tuna, mayonnaise, hot sauce and scallion in a medium sized bowl. Combine cooked rice and vinegar in a smaller bowl. Spread the tuna mixture over the wrap, then top with rice and vinegar mixture. Add some watercress, small carrot sticks and avocado, roll up and enjoy. If you pre-cook rice in advance, this can turn into an easy to put together, no cook meal.
Apple Walnut Salad.
In a medium bowl, toss together salad greens, apple slices or cubes, walnuts and cheddar cheese. In a separate jar, combine oil, lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper and put the lid tightly on. Shake the jar well and pour this delicious dressing over your salad when you are ready to enjoy!
