So this past week I have been revising for an exam (it’s on the 8th October!). As a result I haven’t been able to devote much time to cooking, or anything at all much in fact except revision! I can’t wait to get this exam over and done with and have some free time again.
However, no matter how much work and revision I have to do, I still need to eat eventually!
After a long day in work and a couple of hours revision at home my brain isn’t up to much but that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to eat something tasty. While some nights I have resorted to the easy/lazy option of sticking a frozen pizza in the oven, I’ve also been whipping up a few quick and easy meals.
As a goats cheese addict, a favourite quick meal of mine is the oh so easy and oh so indulgent figs and goats cheese on toast.
This has only four ingredients and takes just 5 minutes to prepare and another 5 minutes to cook so it’s great for when you don’t have much time. I personally think the flavour combination is just divine so for me this is the perfect reward for a hard days studying.
Another speedy supper I’ve had this week is salt and pepper squid. It’s a bit like calamari but with a little more oomph from all the pepper and without a batter.
While it’s quick to cook, this does take a little more time to prepare if you’re using fresh squid, but it’s really speedy if you’re using the pre-prepared ones.
The final dish I wanted to share is chickpeas with chorizo, lemon and roast peppers.
This is such a simple store cupboard dish but it’s full of flavor and the lemon gives it a real freshness it using tinned ingredients. It works well cold as well as hot and it keeps really well in the fridge so it’s great for packed lunches (which is how I’ve been enjoying it).
