Some of my favourite things to make:
Rice paper rolls (noodles take seconds and use any veg (carrot, cucumber, avocado, capsicums/peppers, green onions) with different sauces)
Fritters/Burgers (I do usually use egg to bind them … but easy to do with some frozen veg mixed up with flour and a bit of milk … can use black beans, beetroot, plantains, zucchini, corn … anything you like!)
Roasted Veg (take longer than your timeframe … but if you cut them into small chunks they are a great easy to prepare and leave whilst you do other things)
Risotto (so many variations … can use precooked rice if you want to speed it up … I like pumpkin, blue cheese and spinach)
Tortillas and beans in all sorts of forms … small can of beans, some other veg, some tomatoes … add some spices … put on tortilla with avocado (tonight I had tortillas with eggplant dip, spinach and tomatoes)
Baked eggplant with tomatoes and cheese (just slice the eggplant, top with tomatoes and cheese, bake for about 20 mins)
I like beets - have them as a salad with green leaves, sesame/pumpkin seeds, goats cheese
Pasta with pesto … use any green leaves in a food processor (I can get lots of spinach and other greens this way, that I just couldn’t eat as salad) … I don’t make pesto like the full rich versions … very little oil, a touch of cheese and some garlic … mixed through hot pasta.
“Pizza” … use thin flat bread … add toppings that you like … yum!
It’s great to have a collection of easy ideas!
