Here’s a new series for quick easy dinners: our brand spanking lazypants CBF Dinners.
Essentially, a CBF Dinner is that weekday meal you make when you get home from work, exhausted, and you just can’t be fucked doing more than lying on the couch and bingeing on Netflix. But a girl’s gotta eat.
The governing principles of a CBF Dinner are as follows:
- Minimal utensils required (less washing up!)
- Prepped and cooked in 30 minutes or less
- Tastes good
- Not complete and utter nutritional trash
This potato and green pea curry costs so little per serve you’re almost making a profit. It has plenty of carbs to bulk it out, some veg so it’s doing you a tiny bit of good, and best of all, can be frozen to eat later. The most expensive thing in it is the bottled sauce, because fuck making curry from scratch. You’ve got so many better things to do.
