Quick and Easy Recipes

In “SUMMER Express: 101 Simple Meals Ready in 10 Minutes or Less,” the Minimalist column of the New York Times which was published on July 18, numerous simple and tasty recipes were set forth. Earlier this week The Times listed a few simple and tasty recipes suggested by readers in response to the article. I tried several of them, and a few favorites of mine include:

The Greek fried egg: Heat olive oil gently in a skillet with fresh oregano; fry eggs in it. Pour into a bowl and top with crumbled feta cheese and a handful of olives. Serve with country bread.
Bean-and-tuna salad: Good, olive-oil packed tuna is a must here: Combine two cups of cannellini beans, drained, with a minced red onion, a can of tuna, olive oil and salt and pepper as needed. Chopped sage is great in this, as are rosemary and basil.

Check it out if you get a chance...
