Save time and simplify with 100 fabulous quick-and-easy recipes—using 6 ingredients, 6 minutes of prep, and 6 minutes of clean up.
Preparing a meal doesn’t need to be difficult or require a lot of time, celebrity chef Stuart O’Keeffe insists. If you work efficiently while keeping your space clean and cook with minimal yet flavorful ingredients, you can get a great meal from stove to table fast. In The Quick Six Fix, he offers dozens of delicious recipes for breakfast, salads, soups, pasta, fish, chicken, pork, beef, sides, and desserts that will get you in and out of the kitchen in thirty minutes or less. Each requires no more than 6 key ingredients, 6 minutes of prep work, and 6 minutes of clean up.
There’s an Irish proverb that best describes my approach to cooking: “There’s no use boiling your cabbage twice.” It actually has nothing to do with cooking; it’s usually said when someone tends to revisit worries over and over. But if you take it more literally, it simply shows the folly in making too much of a fuss over anything—including cooking. I find that people tend to unnecessarily stress out over preparing a meal. It needn’t be hard, and it doesn’t have to require a lot of time. We’re modern people living in modern times with all of the savvy, tools and tricks to cook efficiently without sacrificing delicious results. Think about it: what good is a twice-boiled anything?
