Even profesh cooks like Giada De Laurentiis and our girl Rach like to keep it *super* simple in the kitchen sometimes. (They always make their recipes look easy anyway, but ya know!)
Q: "When you're at home relaxing, what's your easy go-to meal that you make?"
— Josephine, audience member
Giada's picks? Soups and salads.
And lucky for you, we have some great recipes!
For soups, try Rachael's Tomato and Roasted Eggplant Soup, Tuscan Soup or her Rags of Chicken and Noodle Soup. For salads, try Rachael's Tre Colore Salad, Tomato Salad or any of these six no-cook dinner salads. Oh, and for the perfect combo, how about Rach's 'Quick-ish' Onion Soup and Spinach Salad?
Now, while Rachael also loves soup because it can last for several days, she also likes to fill up on scrambled eggs.
"Eggs are easy," Rachael says. "If I'm home alone, I make something simple."
Rach has made a LOT of eggs on the show (because breakfast for dinner is always a win!), but you can't go wrong with her Spinach and Feta Frittata or Reuben Frittata.
If you can't get enough, check out more recipes for soups, salads and eggs!
