Laborless Dishes — Ready in 30 Minutes or Less

by in How-to, Recipes, September 2nd, 2011

Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer, and after a long three-month vacation, kids will be heading back to school in just days. Savor these last homework and activity-free days with friends and family, and prepare quick and easy, in-season recipes that can be made in minutes.

Leave it to 30-minute mogul Rachael Ray to concoct an impressive and flavorful burger in just a half hour. Her BBQ Chicken Burgers With Slaw (pictured above) from Food Network are packed with tangy barbecue flavors, including Worcestershire and hot sauces, garlic and grill seasoning. Topped with a mayo-free cabbage slaw, these burgers are not only filling, but healthful as well.

Food.com’s hearty Asparagus, Sun-Dried Tomato and Orzo Salad features fresh asparagus and herbs, soft sun-dried tomatoes and rich balsamic vinegar. Ready in just 20 minutes, this summertime side dish pairs perfectly with any grilled main.

For a light and veggie-friendly green salad, offer Grilled Zucchini Over Baby Spinach from Cooking Channel. Lightly dressed with olive oil and vinegar, this go-to salad takes just 16 minutes to prepare and produces knockout results.

Don’t sweat the sweet stuff this weekend: Set up a Mexican-Style Chocolate Fondue bar from Food2. Complete with a sizeable pot of creamy, cinnamon-scented chocolate sauce and a vast array of fresh fruit (strawberries and banana quarters work great), pretzel sticks and cubed pound cake pieces, this seamless dessert can be on your table in only 25 minutes.

    laborless dishes are leftovers from the night before where less labor is required as usually all it takes is to heat it up in the microwave oven or if it's leftover salad-put the dishes in the dishwasher to keep your day laborless
