Easy Tips To Quicken Meal Prep TimeBest Eats

For those who adore cooking, spending endless hours whipping up a hearty meal is nothing short of rewarding. But with that being said, there are tiny tips and tricks which can shorten your time spent in the kitchen, and here's how.
1. Dealing With Eggs
Eggs are an essential ingredient in most recipes, and we've got an efficient way of preparing them. Since only a handful of eggs can fit into a pot for boiling, try putting them into the oven instead. This way, you'll be able to bake twelve of them at once, and will be rewarded with a dozen hard-boiled eggs in thirty minutes.
If you're an avid baker, you'll know nothing frustrates you more than having to be stopped halfway through your recipe. So if you ever require eggs at room temperature, but forgot to take them out of your fridge an hour prior, dunk them into a bowl of warm water and the problem is fixed in minutes!
2. A Variety Of Seasoned Meat
Every party host wants to go above and beyond with their food, but may soon realize its not the most practical or time efficient idea. However, if you ever find yourself frustrated because you won't be able to cook a variety of seasoned meat within a stipulated amount of time, this may be your solution.
Split your pan into three or more compartments, so all your meat can be cooked at the same time, even if they're covered in a different sort of marinade. This works best if you're using the same type of meat for all marinades, since they'll mostly require the same amount of cooking time.
3. Prepare Vegetables In Advance
Sometimes having to whip up dinner after a long day at work feels tough, but there are certain ingredients you can prepare beforehand to shorten your meal prep duration. Raw vegetables are one of them, and some can even be prepared a week in advance.
If you have a specific meal plan planned out before each week starts, spend some time chopping and storing raw vegetables during the weekend. Leave them in containers with days labelled onto them, making dinner prep a little more hassle free each night.
4. Add Store Prepared Items
Although some people prefer to prepare everything from scratch, adding store prepared food items once in awhile will definitely shorten the time taken to whip up a meal. Supermarkets have pre mixed salads, some of which are actually extremely delicious.
If you're really short on time, stop by the gourmet meat section and grab grilled salmon or chicken breast, so all you'll have to do when you get home is simply boil pasta and add the meat to it. Pre-prepared roasted vegetables can be bought to as an extra side dish for your meal.
