If your are in a hurry and you must cook something and have only 30 minutes, what do you choose and why?I could think of eggs (boiled, scrambled or sunny side up). How about you?

I used to be in a hurry all the time before and one of the friendliest food I have encountered is the PORK or CHICKEN adobo. it can literally be cooked in 30 minutes or less if your just cooking for your own. Whatever is adobo, just ask me. :)

Adobo is a native Filipino dish comprised of wither pork or chicken or a combination of both. I can send you the recipe to your email.:) I'm sure you're gonna like it a lot as most foreigner friends of mine do love them and hoped of cooking them in thir home countries. :)

Hmm, I could only think of a few things. There's canned food, instant food(noodles, etc), and take out. These are probably not what you were looking for but if I really was in a hurry I would leave with an empty stomach. Its been a habit of mine. I just eat a lot afterwards, maybe after class or something. Some bread and coffee will also suffice as a 30minute food for me. Its probably not a good thing but I guess my body is used to it that it actually doesnt complain.LOL

Hi Elitess, I love eggs of any sort and they really are a simple nutricious easy to make meal whichever way they are cooked. A simple but tasty dish I do is to cook some pasta (15mins) and at the same time chop some chicken into small pieces and on low heat, whilst this is doing I will chop up some spring onion and get some cherry tomatoes, then make a honey and mustard dressing, drain off pasta and mix chicken dressing and salad together, yummy. Total time 15-20 mins and ready on the table. Another quick meal is pizza, garlic bread and salad, again 20 mins tops. Enjoy, an omlette is one of my favourites. Ellie :D

Well done, a lot of blokes wouldn't ever bother trying to cook and yet I think they are often much better cooks once they get the feel for it than some women. Ellie :D

Any thing that is fully cooked. Or something that you can place in the microwave. Also making a cold sandwich always works!

Well i will consider the cold sandwich and the microwave response but the fully cooked is out of the question as i was referring to something that does not have to be cooked first :D Thanks for sharing - have a super weekend !

My mom who is one of the best cooks, she can whip up a full course meal within 30 minutes. There are a lot of things you can cook in 30 minutes, for example: A T-bone steak (if you eat beef);broiled on each side for 10-15 minutes each (depends on how you like it;rare, medium rare, or well done). Then make bake potatoes in the micro-wave for 3-5 minutes each (put them in a plastic bag,the ones you get from the grocery store). If you don't have a micro-wave, then peel and cut big chucks of potatoes and boil them, then drain them, put butter, salt and pepper or chives on them. They are one of my favorites. Whole kernel corn or Corn on the cob goes well with that. There's your 30 minute meal. Rachel Ray also has a show which shows you 30 minute meals. Spaghetti is another quick meal (although I like my sauce to cook for a while), but if you get already made sauce and spice it up a bit. I prefer the 4 cheese sauce. I add a some sugar and oregano to it, add browned ground beef or turkey(which only takes a few minutes to brown) then let it cook for 30 minutes, the spaghetti noodles only takes about 10 minutes.Sometimes I have Italian sausage on the side (which I fry on medium heat)and cheese or garlic bread. For your vegetable, make a leaf salad. LOL!!
