The convenient lure of Chinese takeout after a busy, stressful day is all too real. On your way home from work, you feel fried, over-stimulated and can barely muster the energy to tap out a delivery order. Triple all of these feels if you just picked up cranky kids from daycare, too. We’ve all been there.
Trust us when we tell you that you can prepare a wholesome, real-food dinner that tastes just as good as takeout (actually, that tastes way better)—sans the inevitable after dinner brick-in-the-gut feeling or run-to-the-bathroom urgency from the use of dubious additives and suspect industrial seed oils in the takeout. Nobody needs that after the day you’ve had.
In just 20 minutes, you can have dinner on the table. All it takes is browning some meat, adding some veggies and sauces to the mix, then layering on even more flavor with some chopped nuts, toasted sesame seeds and fresh lime juice. One-pot dinner for the win!
