When I think instant. I think Trader Joes. Peanut butter pretzels, macadamia lacies, mochi ice cream,good cheese selection including prosciutto wrapped smoked mozarella, roquefort,etc. with crackers,bread,grapes. Etc. etc. I know you are probably looking for recipes, but thought I would throw this out there.

Glad I could remind you. I looked online to make sure they had them by you before I mentioned it. I am never bored with the food there.

Potted meat mixed with Beanie Weenies. Well not any more, but it used to be a lunch staple for me 40 years ago.

Tuna fish salad.

Humboldt Fog cheese (a ripened goat chese with a vegetable ash coating) with fig preserves on a water cracker. Unfortunately our local grocery doesn't carry the cheese, so I only get it once in a while. I might have to try some other goat cheese. Also smoked salmon and Snofrisk cheese on a water cracker--even better if you have some fresh chives to throw on top.

Any good tasting combination you can throw in a frying pan tossed with pasta--as long as there's bacon/pancetta and garlic involved.

Rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. A guilty pleasure, but I love it with cheese and a bottle of wine.

Good quality deli ham tossed with greek dressing. Extra feta and olives are always a plus.

Pizza burritos--tortilla spread with sauce (you can use a good quality prefab sauce if you'd like) sprinkled with cheese and pizza toppings, tossed in the oven. Make 'em flat like a pizza or roll them up like a burrito.

Strawberries + dark brown sugar + sour cream

Hard salami, butter, and havarti on french bread

Chocolate bar + butter on french bread

Butter on thick slice of bread, sprinkled with dark chocolate chips & drizzled with honey, stuck in the oven until chocolate is soft

Cheese toast. Any cheese. Any good bread.

Tomato slices sprinkled with salt, pepper, oregano, drizzled with olive oil, topped with cheese, and stuck in the oven until cheese is melted.

Not sure if it's really instant, but toast, tomato, and avocado hit with a bit of cayenne and sea salt satisfies pretty dang well.

Beemster...god I love that stuff. I used to work with a Dutch Chef and he used to break off a hunk every other night after service along with a few bottles of red and some toast points....mmmmmmmmmm!

OH yeah. I just got a wedge of Beemster Graskaas last week. My toddler asked to eat it every day.

This thread is making me hungry.

Sourmilk in a bowl, mix in talkkuna flour and enjoy. Add berries or honey if you like it sweet. This is as instant as it gets, it's almost embarrassing to post this in a cooking forum.
Salted raw salmon (gravlax in Swedish) with dill and dark bread. Can be regular rye or that sweet syrupy stuff the swedes like. Put some cream cheese too.
Pickled cucumber with sour cream and honey. I was horrified when I first saw this on a plate but now I'm hooked. Clever Russians.

Not instant, but pretty quick, is red lentils with onion, crushed tomato and oregano. I don't know what it's properly called since it was originally just an emergency recipe. Can be used for anything in place of canned beans. Great with crackers, works with salad too.
Stir-fried vegetables with noodles.
Noodle soup, assuming you already have stock for the broth.
Pasta & green pesto.
