Fresh & Easy is owned by the UK Giant Tesco. This is the small neighborhood market with a huge selection of ready to cook dinners. A life saver when live just grinds you too tired to be productive. Between it and Costco I rarely go to a regular grocery store anymore.
Doctoring is the key to making the store bought stuff better and "your own". I started with their nifty Pork Medallions with Chipotle Cream Sauce. Garnish was easy...topped it with F&E Roast Peppers after I browned them off then poured on the Chipotle Cream.
I served it over my "latin rice" which is a easy toss together with staples I always have on hand. In this case salsa and canned roasted peppers. Add in the F&E Cheesey Brocolli and dinner is done in 8 minutes.
Easy Latin Rice
- 1 can chicken broth
- 1 can Minute Rice
- 1 T dried chopped cilantro
- 1/2 C salsa fresca
- 1/4 c coarse chopped roasted pepper.
Add broth, rice and cilantro to Microwave proof bowl. Heat on HIGH for 5 minutes until it comes to a simmer. Let sit covered 5 minutes. Just before serving add salsa fresca and roasted pepper. Toss with fork and it is ready to go.
There you go a stupid easy dinner that looks and tastes like you busted your hump getting it out in 10 minutes.
