As someone who had to eat at the workplace and struggles a lot with cooking, I know how hard it can be sometimes to know what to take. Here are 10 quick and easy recipes for the day you have to eat at work:
1. Baked Falafel
the chunkier ingredients (chickpeas, herbs, & onions). Add the rest of the ingredients (cilantro, parsley, coriander, cumin, black pepper, salt and baking powder). Create the form you want for you falafel and add some olive oil to make it easy to turn it away when it is in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes, flip it and then 10 more minutes. Ready!
2. Microwave potatoes
Delicious and very quick. Place some potatoes in a microwave recipient, add some oil, salt and some parsley use a fork to prick the potatoes so that they are easier to cook and leave them in the microwave for 3-5 minutes. Check how they are and if they need some more time or not. You can also add some cheese or butter on top of them. Yummmmy!!!
Oh. A classic. Easy, quick and with many different possibilities for you to choose the one you like the most! Only rice with tomato, Spanish paella, rice with some veggies, black rice… A whole world!
4. Broccoli with Asian Garlic Sauce
Add garlic, soy sauce/tamari, broth, and cornstarch in a bowl and mix all the ingredients. In a large skillet, add some oil and then carefully place the broccoli florets. Cook for some minutes, then add the garlic sauce. Mix well. Cook a little bit more, as preferred. Take it out and eat!
5. Grilled Cheese Sandwich
You just need bread, butter on one side of bread slices, your favourite kind of cheese and a large skillet or electric griddle where you can toast the sandwich. Toast it during 2-3 minutes and voilà!
6. Pasta Salad
Choose your favourite veggies and turn your pasta into something healthier. You will only need roasted veggies, salt, poppy seeds and some apple cider vinegar and olive oil to add more savour. You can also add mustard, agave or any other sauce you love.
7. Honey-Mustard Chicken Wings
Place the wings in the oven and bake them during 30 minutes approx. on each side. Add the honey and the mustard sauce on top of them during this cooking time. Done!

Prepare refrigerated crescent rolls. In a large skillet, cook beef (or the ingredient you want to choose for the roll-ups) and drain. Remove from the heat and add the tomato sauce, mozzarella (or the cheese you prefer) and oregano. Place about 3 tablespoons of the mixture you have made along the crescent rolls. Roll them up and cut them into smaller pieces. Bake again for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
