Does anyone have a go-to recipe?
for what? food? jail breaking your dishwasher?
Food, though, jail breaking a dishwasher got my interest.
jailbreaking kitchen appliances, you say? (fiction)
Margherita by Tony Gemignani , perfection!
When I was in university I made my own creation: Poor Man’s Tuna Casserole. I’m a terrible and lazy chef.
Step 1: Make a batch of Mac-n-Cheese (KD or offbrand KD if you’re Canadian).
Step 2: Add a can of tuna (or a portion of a can if you are poor 😉)
Mac and cheese is such a great base for meals! We do the same, and sometimes with burger. We often add peas to the tuna version, and onion to the burger version.
This is a really great suggestion! Once you have the mac & cheese, you can create a bunch of different dishes!
Also, my wife can’t have dairy, and we found a fantastic vegan mac & cheese by a company called Daiya. In our opinion, they’ve got the best-tasting dairy substitutes. They have a vegan cheddar cheese sauce and an alfredo sauce that’s really good, and also make standard mac & cheese boxes for quick-and-easy.
Americans tend to think if mac & cheese as unhealthy comfort food, but it’s a great basis for a variety of dishes.
+1 on your suggestion!
The one recipe I make, more than any other, is bread. It’s fast, simple, and aside from being a nearly every-morning staple, it forms the basis for many if our lunches. I make this once a week, throughout the year, and I doubt we make any other single, non-trivial recipe more frequently.
Unless “martini” is a recipe.
It’s one of the easiest bread recipes I’ve seen, and frankly just as good as and fussy recipe thay requires more steps. This one is just “put everything in a bowl and mix it.”
Now, some breads do need more work that you really can’t simplify and still get the same result, like baguette. But I think people see bread recipes and think they’re a lot of work, get turned off, and never make their own bread. It’s a shame, because it doesn’t have to be hard, and it’s way cheaper - and IMO tastier - when it’s home made.
Kind of like beer bread, easy.
Tell me more.
beer bread though for that version I would on step 3 just dump it and spread it personally.
Oh, yum! Ok, I’m making that this weekend!
Does the type of beer make a difference? There isn’t much of it; have you tried it with, eg, a stout, vs a lager?
Yes it does, and yes I have. I’d say experiment with it and different dishes to see what pairs with what.
there’s a curry I make that’s got a texture close to ground beef chili with 100% less beef. I can post the recipe if anyone is interested but there are like a zillion ingredients so I’d rather there be actual interest before I do.
I’m actually interested, what do you use instead of beef?
My go to recipe is a screw driver.
One packet of orange tang, one pint vodka, one cup of water. Shake well. Chill before serving.
Would that go well with orange cake?
Getting good at making a simple pasta or rice can be super useful. I like making a Mexican bowl with beans, capsicum, beef mince, garlic and whatever else and then either having it with rice or corn chips etc
Super spicy Korean noodles with soya chunks for protein
How would you make that?
I’m taking about instant noodles. There are Korean ones I found recently that are extremely spicy. They are called nongshim or something like that. Soya chunks I just buy from the store and chuck them in the water as it is boiling.
A one pot pasta and lentils. In a pot caramelize onion and bell pepper, add lentils and tomato sauce, then after boiling them add the pasta.
With or without water?
With water of course 🤭
Edit: and add salt for the pasta + I didn’t mention any spices but you may add your favorite mix.
