Making time for meals is easier said than done. It’s time to plan, time to buy ingredients, time to cook and time to wash up. Every minute counts – with competing demands between work, family and leisure, we have all become quite ‘time-poor’. Every one has 24 hours, but how do we make good use of these hours to make them count?
We recently introduced a new piece of kitchenware into our family – the Joseph Joseph M-Cuisine stackable microwave pot. It functions as a rice cooker, i.e. steamer, but saves a lot of time and space as you can cook a few small dishes at the same time. Apart from plain rice, I enjoy making ‘tasty rice’ adding small chunks of meat or fish with grated carrot or peas, or cook these in the stackable layers above. It uses minimal oil and is a useful addition to all of us who are time-poor looking for health-conscious recipes!
