fried rice for hungry people

I make this when I need something fairly speedy and filling. It’s nice cause it uses things that are easy to keep around the kitchen + leftovers.

you will need:

  • eggs
  • leftover rice
  • oil (I use sesame oil, but other types work too)
  • teriyaki sauce
  • salt
  • pepper
  • some fast-cooking veggies* or tofu or cooked meat or basically anything that you think would taste good. also a good way to use up extra leftover food in the fridge.

Start by heating up your pan a bit. Once it’s warm, add a bit of the oil, enough to keep things from sticking to the pan. Throw in about a serving’s worth of rice (whatever that is for you) and a handful of the veggies etc. Mix them together a little then add an egg, or two if you’re really hungry. Shove it all around in the pan for a minute or two. Add teriyaki sauce, salt, and pepper as you want. Generally I think the more teriyaki the better. Cook it till it looks done, being careful not to let it burn. You can basically make as much as you want by just adding more of everything, and it makes nice leftovers too.

*Thawed frozen veg works well in winter. In the summer, you could use peas or corn or mushrooms or bean sprouts.

Yakuza!Shimada brother and Zeny'Sis pt2

You seemed nonplussed from the massive Shimada palace, having grown up in a monastery. Genji was a bit disappointing with that, hoping to see you a little awestruck. One of the servant led you to your room, a massive bed in the middle. You placed your bag next to the chabudai, nudging over the zabuton.

The servant bowed and told you that dinner was about to start soon, she would show you were the dining room is. You ran your fingers through your hair and then followed after the meek lady. She pulled open the sliding door and you walked in.

You gently rested your knees on the cushon and the two brothers came in. They settled down and the food was quickly served. You watched the two brothers eat for a moment before lifting the lid off of the bowl of miso soup. Bowl in hand you picked up a piece of tofu out of the soup with chopsticks and nibbled on it.

“How are you liking it?” Genji asked and you smiled at him.

“It’s good,” you tilted your head, lowering the bowl, “It’s a lot different than what I make in the monastery.”

“You make your food?” Hanzo asked, used to having a personal chef.

“I’m the only one who eats there,” you said, “So I make it, although some of my brothers and sisters are curious enough to learn.”

“I’ll have to take you to the ramen place nearby,” Genji said and Hanzo glared at him, Genji winking at his brother, “Or maybe Hanzo can take you if he’s free.”

“I’d like that,” you smiled, “I’ve never had ramen.”

Genji clasped his chest like you had personally wounded him, you smiling harder at his silly behaviour. Hanzo hid a smile behind his own bowl of soup and watched you pick up the bowl of rice. Picking up a clump with your chopsticks you began to eat the grains. The three of you ate the meal, you gently resting the chopstick back down on the rest.

You sipped at the tea that was brought out, savouring the taste of the high end tea. After finishing you made your way back to the guest room, after thanking them for the meal. Taking a hot bath you dressed in a light dress, opening the sliding door out to the garden with the lights off. You looked up at the sky and wondered about your brothers and sisters, they were in the middle of evening meditation. You wondered if you should try to meditate as well, far away as your are, when you noticed a figure walking through the moonlit garden.

Seeing the moon reflect off of Hanzo’s black hair, you were struck with awe. He looked like he belonged here. looking at the moon. You quietly got up and made your way over to him, your feet in sandals left outside the door. He looked up at you paddling towards him, noticing the way the dress glowed in the moonlight.

“Shouldn’t you be resting?” he softly asked and you stood next to him.

“I was thinking of home,” you confessed, eyes downcast but your face slightly happy, “I’ve never really been away from the monastery for this long.”

“You’re homesick,” he said, looking straight at you.

“A little,” you rested a hand on his arm, “I’ll get over it however. How are you?”

“I’m good,” Hanzo hid his excitement at your gentle touch, “I was hoping the cherry blossoms would fall soon, I wanted to show you.”

“I would love to see them,” you tilted your head as an idea popped into your head.

“Thank you for this,” you said, pressing a kiss to his cheek, “You’ve been so nice, I really can’t repay you.”

His cheeks turned red and he stuttered out a reply, “I d…don’t need repayment. Just seeing you happy is enough.”

Something began to ache in your chest, you didn’t know what it was, but you were struck with an urge. 

Pressing a tender kiss to his forehead that made your whole body ache he leaned into your touch, closing his eyes. The two of you just stood there in silence, his hand gently grasping yours.

What's your diet like?

my diet? vegan, obviously. but if you’re talking about details, i eat a lot of carbs. for breakfast, i will have some toast (maybe with avocado, savoury yeast flakes, + tomatoes or my homemade raspberry chia jam and homemade butter), cacao buckini cereal or a smoothies. i like to have vanilla rooibos tea with a bit of almond milk and maple syrup. 
for lunch, it always changes. dinner, i like to cook a lot of curries with either potatoes & veg, tofu, chickpeas or lentils and rice, soups, stir fry, sausage rolls, etc. i don’t know, not strictly healthy, but i like to change it up a lot and try new things!

anonymous asked:

What's for dinner tonight ? I need some ideas? 😥

Idk what I’m having but here’s so ideas: PASTA!!! GRILLED CHEESE!!! SWEET POTATO WITH CHICKEN!!! RICE WITH CHICKEN/TOFU AND HUMMUS!!! SOUP!!! OATMEAL!!! WHATEVER YOUR HEART DESIRES!!! xoxo

So this was a super quick but yummy dinner tonight. Give it a try if you fancy something different. This recipe is for the pea salad. It’s just something to make the veggies a little different. Would also be great for leftovers for a salad the next day! If you want the recipe for my thyme fries then follow the link! I served this with a sainsburys mushroom and spinach burger - it was delish, but feel free to serve with anything you like - be that meat, fish, tofu, anything!

Avocado Pesto Pea Salad

1. Cook your 2 cups petites pois as you normally would. In a bowl add a handful of rocket, 1 tbsp of avocado pesto, 2 tbsp of parmesan and 1 spring onion

2. Mix the whole lot together and you’re done - as easy as that. Enjoy!

Big Stir-fry

We make stir fry pretty often in my house, and it’s one of the cheapest meals to make, while making enough for 4 plus leftovers. It doesn’t take too long and it’s really wonderfully filling.

Ingredients:

-already cooked rice (or other grains, your choice. we do about 2 cups for one stirfry. we’ve also done noodles!)

-meat or protein of choice (we’ve done chicken, beef, and pork; you could do tofu or vegetarian meat, eggs, or omit this entirely and just have vegetables)

-frozen vegetables (we do one bag of stir fry mix, and one of succotash-type veggies. keep them frozen. fresh veg would be ok but frozen is easier.)

-sauce of choice (the last one we did was hoisin, stir-fry sauce, and soy sauce, but anything would work!)

-high smoke-point oil (such as peanut, soybean, grapeseed, and refined sesame)

Cooking wares:

-the pan that can go the hottest in your house (for us it’s a big cast iron skillet. for you it could be a wok or something else)

-a bowl for keeping the protein in after its cooked

Instructions:

1. if your rice isn’t already cooked, cook it. It can be any rice, instant would be just fine if you’re low-spoons or you haven’t mastered cooking rice (like me)

2. add the oil to your pan. set to medium high heat.

As it’s warming, cut your protein up. I’m never sure when meat cooks, so I cut the pieces sort of small so they cook fast. 

Once the oil’s warm, put in the protein and let it cook. once it starts to brown on the outside (it will brown sort of quickly), add your sauce (about 1/3 of the total sauce).

if the sauce sticks to the bottom of your pan don’t worry. it’ll make everything tastier because the veggies, which have water in them, will deglaze the pan. just keep the protein moving as best as you can.

3. remove the protein once it’s fully cooked.

4. add the frozen veggies, heat until they’re not frozen. Once they’re not frozen, add the rest of the sauce.

5. add the protein back in, along with the rice. Stir until everything’s coated in the sauce and everything is warm.

Shabam, you’re done!

You could add green onions, peanuts, or whatever you like as a garnish too. You could crack an egg on top. Sriracha and other spices go well if you like something spicy, but you can also make it very simple and mild by adding not too much sauce. There are so many ways to make this once you know the basic way to do it. 

Good luck stir-frying!

Crispy smoked tofu bites

This is something you can fry up relatively quickly to have a protein with your veggies. I sometimes eat it alone just with ketchup, but it’s nice with hot sauce as well or some sweet chili sauce if you eat it with stir fried veggies. It’d probably also make a good way to bulk up salads. And since unopened smoked tofu keep well in the fridge for a few weeks up to 2 or 3 months it is nice to have on hand if you have vegetarian or vegan houseguests and want to make a snack for them.

Utensils:

  • a frying pan
  • a cutting board and knife
  • spatula
  • a small flat plate like a saucer for breading

Ingredients:

  • smoked tofu
  • breadcrumbs
  • oil for frying
  • ketchup, hot sauce, sweet chili sauce, siracha or whatever condiment you want to dip it in
  • optional: dry seasonings to add to the breadcrumbs like dried herbs, chili flakes, pepper, whatever you fancy

Preparation:

  1. Slice the smoked tofu into slices about 1cm thick.
  2. put a bit of breadcrumbs on a small plate and mix in the dry seasoning or spices if you want to use any.
  3. coat the tofu slices in the breadcrumbs from both sides, generously.
  4. heat a generous amount of oil in a pan on medium to high heat.
  5. fry the tofu slices from both sites until crispy and browned, this does only take a few minutes for each site
  6. serve!

Baekhyun: [sings] Catch me now~
Xiumin: [sings] Catch me girl~~

last week, Paul and I were talking about how long it had been since we’d had thai food. while we were talking about it, I was thinking of this amazing red curry soup that I used to order in Winnipeg. and then randomly yesterday, a friend on Facebook posted a photo of her dinner – this, thai coconut curry noodle soup. I needed it immediately, so we bought the ingredients today and ate it for dinner. lemme tell ya…it is seriously A M A Z I N G. I tweaked it a little and made it vegan, so I’ll share both the recipes and you can use whichever fits your needs. and you do need this in your life. 

COCONUT CURRY NOODLE SOUP 

 what you need
• 2 tbsp oil
• 1 onion, diced
• 3 chopped cloves of garlic
• 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
• 3 tbsp thai red curry paste
• 8 oz chicken breast (sub: tofu)
• 4 cups chicken broth (sub: vegetable broth)
• 1 cup water • 2 tbsp fish sauce (sub: 1 tbsp braggs or soy sauce)
• 2/3 cup coconut milk 

• rice vermicelli noodles
• 1 lime, juiced
• cilantro, to garnish
• optional: extra coconut milk to ease the spice

what you do
1. sautée the oil, onion, garlic, ginger, and red curry paste until onion is cooked/tender (approx 5 mins)
2. add chicken (sub: tofu) and sautée until it’s mostly cooked
3. add broth, water, fish sauce (sub: braggs/soy sauce), and coconut milk. bring to a boil, and let simmer for 20-30 mins
4. pour soup over individual portions of rice noodles. they cook FAST, and hot soup over top is all they need
5. add a squeeze of lime juice and a sprinkle of cilantro. red curry is spicy, so if it’s too hot for you, add some extra coconut milk to your portion – it’s good, I promise! 

E N J O Y ! 

(side note) I’m a pretty firm believer in introducing new and ‘different’ foods to children while they’re still young, so for Jackson I took the noodles out of the broth, added a bit of coconut milk to ease the spice (while still leaving some kick) and he loved it!

Peanut Veggie Stir Fry

This easy recipe is healthy, high protein, and great for low-spoons dinners. None of the ingredients are very perishable, so they are easy to keep on hand, and it makes leftovers or enough for two.

You’ll need:

  • 1 bag mixed stir fry vegetables
  • 1 package cubed firm tofu
  • Peanut butter
  • Garlic salt
  • Sriracha or sauce of your choosing

Cook all the ingredients over medium heat for several minutes and serve.
