1. Put some cheese between two slices of bread.
four slices of toast, while also slowly cooking one tin of Baked Beans (Heinz, or Branston if you must) on a hob.
Butter toast when finished. Pour cooked beans on top. Serve on a plate.
I hope everyone is taking notes.
maybe for you, mr millionaire!
in a bowl.
beware of grating chese on top of toast......the shrinkage is severe....
yes that joke IS good enough to be used twice in 10 minutes
yours was just a bit more intelligent
i'm so incredibly hurt.
Chop up some carrots/onions/courgettes into inch-long sections
Put a bit of olive oil in a baking tray, add vegetables and put in the oven on 200 degrees for 20 minutes or so.
In the meantime, follow the instructions on the cous cous packet and make it. Add salt, pepper and a bit of garlic.
Put it all together, and eat.
i sometimes cook something similar to that, but i cook all the veg on the hob with some onions and a tin of tomatoes (firstly removing the tomatoes from the tin).
I'm going to give that a try.
get a chicken fillet, slice it open, put garlic butter and mozzarella cheese inside. wrap in bacon and use a cocktail stick to hold the whole thing together.
bake at 220 degrees for 40 mins. serve with something else.
a lovely filling for a chicken fillet like this is onions, apricots and raisins. Slowly cook them with some red wine and then stuff inside the chicken. Coat chicken in BBQ sauce before you cook it in the oven for extra goodness.
but without BBQ sauce which is evil in a bottle.
sauce, foolio. Mmm, home made barbecue sauce. GOOD.
But yeah, I'll make it for you. Possibly...
so long as you leave out whatever ingredient it is that makes barbeque sauce taste of evil.
red wine? what's that all about? are you telling me to buy wine just to put it on food?
chop garlic and onions, and cook it. Wash a bag of spinach and add it to the pan. Add two tablespoons of tomato puree. Put this in tortilla wraps with some cheese (feta, cheddar, etc), wrap them up, and put them in the oven. Then eat them.
oven on 200ish degrees, gas mark 5-6.
enough that when it's melted it leaves a thin layer on the pan (this is a medium sized frying pan)
add half a chopped onion, fry till brown
add risotto rice fry for 1 minute
pour in white wine (not too much, depends how winey you want it to taste)
wait until it's nearly fully absorbed into the rice
add vegetable stock, bit by bit, until rice is big and fluffyish (or read instructions)
grate in parmesan and add rocket leaves
are my favourite bit of any thread, ever, for the last three months.
you could've just copied and pasted from someone else's post all those other times.
sparingly on a plate. Teaspoon of balsamic vinegar. Parma ham on top. Rocket on top of that. Grate some parmesan on top. More olive oil. Yum. Also works well with sliced sundried tomatoes (or are they sunblushed these days? what the fuck is that all about huh?).
Courgette sliced in half. Sliced brie on top. Sprinkle of cayenne pepper. Grill til brie is burning.
I'm tellin NASA
but NASA won't care, it's not their rockets. I prefer Branson's.
mush them together
add cumin and coriander and chilli and garlic and lemon
put in a pan
heat up for a while
serve with rice or something
1- You'll need a deep fat fryer and 1 small baby...
bath of hot oil and 1 man
put 2 of them in the freezer, and the other one in the oven.
or vice versa if cooking for more than one person.
1. Heat some olive oil over medium-high heat and sautee a finely diced onion, covered, for about 10 minutes.
2. Add a tin of tomatoes / carton of creamed tomatoes and a teaspoon of sugar, and simmer for 20 minutes.
3. Season with salt and pepper.
Can be used with basically anything and will stay good in the fridge for a few days. Add more or less whatever extras take your fancy depending on the dish.
tomato ketchup + chinese five spice + soy + bit of water + garlic = ace.
mint sauce with pasta WORKS as a quick meal. yup. but it is kinda studenty...
Sauteed chicken breasts / steaks / whatever with pan sauces = perfect for people who are cooking for one all the time. Quick, tasty and nothing wasted.
fry some finely chopped onion, garlic and ground coriander in olive oil, till the onions are translucent.
add rice (about two handfuls per person) to the frying pan, and coat the it in the oil.
Add green beans and whatever other vegetables you fancy (mushrooms, peppers, carrots or anything else you can think of cut into small strips) and 'sweat' them for about 10 minutes to release the flavour, stirring all the time to make sure the rice doesnt burn (have it on a low to medium heat at this point)
pour in quarter of a bottle of wine, and some vegetable stock, and add a spoonful of honey and a squirt of lemon.
wait for the rice to swell and the mixture reduce, and a few minutes before it's ready, chuck in the prawns.
serve with a glass of white wine, mmmmmm
and i'll make you it. house speciality!
That looks awesome.
how much do you think risotto + plate + glass of white wine would cost first class to london?
one problem though: it might get a bit cold before it gets there.
I'm getting a microwave soon. I'm living the hot-food-fast dream! If you could send me some cutlery too that would be swell.
when i can. i don't know when that'll be though.
SAD FACE DELUXE. stupid third year course responsibilities...
Cut some tomatoes into quarters, put oil and balsamic and a shake of brown sugar on them, put in oven for 1 hour on 140.
Mix tin of chickpeas (drained), garlic, coriander, balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil.
When hour is up, slice haloumi and fry in tiny bit of oil until brown.
Put all on rocket. YUM
to the MOON?
need to eat too
You poisoned all the moon people!
A bit of butter.
Loads of pepper.
A bit of salt.
In a jug/bowl/whatever.
In the microwave.
Mash it all up a bit.
But it back in.
Add more pepper and salt.
apart from certain things chemically designed to make me crave them, obviously.
i wish i could give it up.
is infinitely better than eating.
add pesto from a jar and grate cheese over
2 eggs, bisto, mackrel.
Scramble the eggs (Jacob, this can be done in the microwave), bake the mackrel. Then, boil the kettle and add to the bisto. Et voila! Mackrel and eggs topped off with a nice bit of gravy
It was nice. A repeatable experience, for sure.
...Will someone come with me for a parmo? :(
but i'm "not your friend" apparently...
*punches sexybum's arm and runs away giggling*
We'll both chew really loudly to piss each other off.
It's the lazy person's rice.
Literally the greatest late-night/comfort food/snack/thing ever is couscous mixed with honey and bananas, served HOT.
sounds vile. sorry.
it tastes better than it sounds. honest.
WHAT YOU BUY
2 teaspoons of polyunsaturated margarine
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 leek, thinly sliced
90g potatoes, diced
200ml fish stock (made from a stock cube)
2 tablespoons of white wine
120g white fish, cut into small chunks
1 tomato, skinned and roughly chopped
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
60g canned sweetcorn, drained
50ml light evaporated milk
2 tablespoons natural
Complan powder (optional)
Few drops Tabasco sauce (optional)
Serve with one slice of multigrain bread
Melt the margarine and fry the onion, garlic and leek for about five minutes.
Add the potatoes and the stock and bring to the boil.
Stir in the wine, fish, tomatoes and parsley.
Partially cover the pan and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the potatoes and fish are cooked.
Add the sweetcorn and evaporated milk and simmer for a few more minutes.
Stir in the Tabasco and Complan powder, add salt and pepper and serve immediately.
but what is evaporated milk? and stock? and do i really have to buy wine just to make soup?
place salmon fillets on baking tray, cover in pesto, chilli flakes and olive oil. cook on 190 for 25 mins or so.
serve with vegetables of your choice. YUMMY.
this sounds nice, but maybe a bit complicated to start with. Stock is very useful, you can buy stock cubes. Stock is just to add flavour to things, you make it from boiling meat or vegetables then using the water. It tastes a bit like gravy.
+ Pesto = Pesto Pasta
