Tired Friday Nights’ Feast

Shared by: Lorraine

It's what my now-husband and I invented when we were so tired on a Friday after a long work week. It's quick, affordable, versatile, healthy and makes good left-overs. Also, it mainly uses what you can have in your fridge, freezer and pantry so no shopping involved.


1 Tablespoon frozen orange juice concentrate/person (optional but adds a lot)
1 carrot/person
1/2 onion/person
knob of grated/chopped/sliced fresh ginger (to taste)
1 serving chicken/fish/seafood/tofu per person
1 serving rice per person


1. Put rice on to cook
2. in a lidded microwaveable bowl put frozen orange juice concentrate + prepared fresh ginger
3. Microwave & while that’s cooking:
4. Carrot: grate, finely slice, or make julienne strips on a mandoline
5. Add to dish, mix & microwave
6. Slice onion halves into strips
7. Add to bowl, stir and microwave
8. Take protein, bury it under the veggies, microwave until cooked
9. Serve over rice

All microwave times vary by power of microwave and size of batch you are making. Basically, do each step in order, add to the already microwaved ingredients, stir and cook some more. Reheats well the next day.
