Use high-impact ingredients. Soy sauce and Parmesan have something in common: Both are robust ingredients where someone else has put in all the effort (they take more than a year to produce). Take advantage of the convenience and lean on ingredients like these. You'll add quick flavor.
Choose fast-cooking methods and foods. There's a reason we love broiling and other no-fuss ways to cook: They're fast and easy. You could broil a piece of salmon in 10 minutes or less and have dinner on the table not long afterward. Choose a side that's fast too. Couscous is one of our go-to options because it's both quick and easy to make.
