1- start with a base dish that can be transformed into something else (ex. tomato sauce or plain rice and plain chicken)
2- make what would seem like 3 to 4 times too much for one family meal
3- be creative and don't be afraid of serving leftovers for lunches
Here's how I made 3 meals from one pot.
Pasta (quinois pasta for me, whole wheat for the hubby and kids) and a giant pot of pasta sauce - for something different I added veggie crisps, which are a soy based "meat substitute". My pasta sauce was made from crushed tomatoes (2 cans of no salt added), a can of tomato paste, onions, shredded carrots and zucchini, garlic and basil/parsley.
Chili made from the leftover pasta sauce, here I added beans, celery, corn and chilli powder. Served with toast! (easy easy)
Chili salad (see picture)
