Australian celebrity chef Julie Goodwin knows a few things about good food.
Food that takes hours of preparation, food that is constantly stirred and tested with fingers dipped.
But even a chef like Goodwin believes in the power of the cheat meal.
Not the ‘high-calorie’ meal dieters sometimes use as a reward. We’re talking the kind of dish you can whip together in ten-seconds flat with the phone under your ear.
Listen to Julie Goodwin spruik her two go-to meals on I Don’t Know How She Does It.
The 46-year-old told podcast host Alissa Warren about two of her favourite cheat meals in the latest episode of I Don’t Know How She Does It.
“I would have to say the quick easy for me… well, one is a creamy bake-in pasta, so just toss the pasta and it takes two minutes to make the sauce,” she said.
“Dinner done and they’re always happy with that but it’s not an every night meal.”
The mother-of-three said her second go-to was a simple chicken laksa using ingredients from her garden.
