I tend to do 1 pot meals as i don;t have the patience to watch all the different pans and co-ordinate.
My leek and potato soup is equal amounts of potato and leek, perhaps a few lentils(thickens up) water,salt and pepper,garlic. Can add yoghurt etc if you like or grated cheese on top. Can mash with a potato masher.
Also ratatoille with equal aubergine,corguettes,peppers,onions,tomatoes, can have a tin of butter beans or broad beans or grated cheese on top, Have very little or no water but a lot of tomato pure from a tube or a jar .
Other soups just cut up any veg that may be going off,lentils or tin of kidney beans and add stock cubes or miso . Usually need onions and garlic. Can turn this into curry by adding powder ,paste or jar of flavoured curry sauce. rice (micro wave type?) and yoghurt.
Roast is easy with instant gravy and dried sossmix. Boil potatoes a bit before putting in the hot fat in the oven and make sure shallow fat is hot in the baking tray first and spooned on top of them. Can cut really small and put in oven with a chicken leg or prpacked meat that only takes half an hour. Boil veg on top of stove ---can turn down low or off with lids or plate on top and reheat when the stuff in the oven is ready.
