10 minute meals
 
I did a search and couldn't find a thread that I liked so I decided to start one. The title is self self explanatory, post meals that you can make in less than 10 minutes. After I hit the timer I:

Prep.

-turned on the stove
-opened Kroger value french sliced green beans
-opened Kroger value black beans
-put them in a strainer and ran water over them
-cracked 5 eggs into a separate bowl and mixed them together

Cooking

-Put it all in a pot on the stove for about 4 or 5 minutes
-Stir occasionally
-Salt, pepper, and cheese to taste
-Enjoy!

Total time: 9 min. 21 sec.

Calories: 705
-from fat: 72.5
Protein: 27g
Carbs: 91.5g
Fat: 18g
-Sat. 3g

I didn't realize until just now how many carbs were in black beans. What do y'all think? Suggestions, criticisms, and critiques are all appreciated.

Looks quick, but probably won't get much support from the Paleo crew due to the beans.

Honestly, that gourmet cooking matches a 4-yo's tastes.

In 10 minutes you could have made a 2 minute salad!

There are way to many carbs in that creation. I don't eat that many in a day.

Still, its a good idea, especially for us busy folks.

I don't know if I have any 10 minute total cooking time and all, but I definitely have 10 minute prep time, and then put in in the oven/slow cooker. I'll see what I can come up with and add some in later today.

Not for nothing, but that's the best you could come up with?
I think it's 4P, 10C, 12F?!

Buy a blender.

Haha, ouch. It cost me $1.37 so I'm ok with it. Thanks for the link, I will try out of those tonight. I'm going for another one tonight, I'll up the taste value a bit.

I just got a crock pot so that would be awesome.
