Well I'm eating a fresh papaya and drinking a glass of sauvingnon blanc right now for dinner. Preparation time: 2 minutes. Scrape out most of the seeds (I like a few left) and that's about it. It is one of the most delicious things ever. But I know a lot of people can't just eat a plate of steamed broccoli or a papaya for dinner. I do eat a lot of really simple dinners in between bouts of elaborate cooking experiments. Slab of dark rye with cheese on it, brown rice with sweet soy sauce and chillie, black bean tacos, bowl of pineapple, cucumbers and lychee salad.. it does help to have beans and rice ready to go in the fridge from cooking a few days worth. I think there are vegetarian equivalents of quickly cooking a steak, but they not be to everyone's tastes and needs.
