5 minute meal: Beef and mac over broccoli

Most five minute meals require upfront preparation and at least one pot. But some days I get home exhausted from work and want something quick while still somewhat healthy. All you need for this ‘recipe’  is a bowl and a microwave.


  • 1 frozen meal of your favorite beef with macaroni
  • 1 head of baby broccoli


  1. Microwave frozen meal until there’s 1 minute left
  2. Cut off the broccoli into bite-size chunks and place in a bowl
  3. Add the semi-cooked mac into the bowl and stir, then microwave for 1 minute
  4. Salt to taste

Tada! It’s healthy and yummy.
