5 Smart and Quick Meals to Make At Home During Quarantine

Although the COVID-19 pandemic causes people to remain locked in their homes, eating nutritious meals is more critical than ever to help improve the immune system. You may think it's a daunting job with small stocks of fresh ingredients on your shelves, but with a little improvisation, you can prepare delicious, healthy meals in no time. Many people prepared ahead before the crisis started by stocking up on store cupboard ingredients such as pasta and tinned foods, and now is the time to start using some of them up.

1. Curry Chickpea

Tinned chickpeas are an excellent protein source making them a perfect alternative to beef. These are full of vitamin B6, A, and C and are also high in iron to keep your body healthy. When cooking some rice makes a delicious, rich sauce with tinned tomatoes and onion.

When you have a red or green sweet pepper that needs to be used up, slice it thinly and add it to the sauce for even more flavor and to the benefit of its antioxidants.

Until lockdown started, curry powder was probably not on your shopping list of important ingredients, but you can still make your dish warm and fiery. An effective anti-inflammatory agent, try cayenne pepper, black pepper, or turmeric. Dried chili powder will add a little heat, too.

To improve the sweeter flavors of tomatoes and peppers, add a pinch of salt if you choose not to eat your curry spicily. Garnish with some herbs at hand, such as coriander and parsley, or improvise with thin cucumber strips.

2. Shepherd's Food

You can easily substitute this main ingredient traditionally made from your emergency rations with a dried soya thin product. The soya beans are particularly rich in magnesium. This valuable mineral has many health benefits, such as stress management and pain and anxiety relief. This is the perfect ingredient when the consequences of not being able to get and around as normal are suffering. Follow the soya hydration instructions on the box, then add your own ingredients to it.

If there are still a few fresh carrots and onions remaining, cut them and add to the slimy soya. An alternative can be to use tinned carrots and green beans. For a piquant spice add a splash or two of Worcestershire sauce. Meanwhile, boil some potatoes to make the mashed potato topping, or use an immediately dried version.

When mashing potatoes, add in an egg yolk to make the potato topping look shiny. Place the thin soya in an ovenproof dish and spoon the potato on top, before baking until golden brown.

3. Carbonara pasta

This classic Italian dish can be easily modified to be healthier even though there are not many fresh ingredients in it. When cooking your pasta in a big saucepan, cut a few bacon rashers into thin strips and cook them in the oven until they crisp instead of frying. If the garlic has run out, finely chop an onion or use a dried alternative and fry.

A real carbonara's tasty secret is the thick, creamy sauce that surrounds the pasta, but in these busy times finding a carton of cream in your refrigerator isn't very likely. An ideal alternative, however, is a tiny tin of condensed milk thickened by a cornflour teaspoon. 

A bunch of fresh, curled leaf parsley may not be in your vegetable rack either, but try a small tin of finely chopped green beans to add some color and flavor. Additionally, they 're packed full of vitamins like A, C, and K to boost the immune system. They also contain vitamin B6, which ensures energy effectively burns in your body, and minerals such as iron, potassium, manganese, and calcium to help you stay fit and healthy.

4. Pea Burgers

If you want to keep your heart safe but because of the lockdown constraints you can't get out and workout too much, try to make your own heart safe peas burgers. This humble vegetable has a high protein content and low carbohydrates. Due to its high potassium level, a mineral that allows your heart and muscles to function efficiently, it's extremely beneficial. Peas contain even manganese that has anti-inflammatory properties. Dried, frozen or tinned peas can be used.

Soak some oats in milk as they cook, and fry a finely diced onion. Use a fork to mash the peas before adding them to the peas, drain the milk from the oats. Add an egg and enough breadcrumbs to guarantee a firm texture for the peas. Season with spices, salt, and pepper.

Form the mixture into many kinds of burgers and fry gently on both sides until well browned. Serve with some steamed vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots in either a burger bun.

5. Pasta Tuna Casserole

Tinned tuna is a versatile food that can be found in your larder, as it can make delicious sandwiches, salads, or casseroles. This also helps to make the immune system more effective by adding selenium, zinc, and Omega-3 fatty acids. It is also a good source of protein that builds muscle.

Fry a thinly sliced red onion until soft while cooking some pasta. Place a tin of tomatoes and a few crushed garlic cloves on top. Tinned sweetcorn is a useful addition since it is high in vitamin B12 and helps lower your level of cholesterol. Using a fork, flake the tuna gently into the pasta before putting the mixture in an oven-proof platter.

Pour the tomato sauce over the pasta and the sweetcorn. If you have any remaining cheese hidden in the fridge, grate it over the top of the platter before baking in the oven. Serve with a little bit of crusty bread and a side salad.
