Every human needs to eat, so use this thread to share food tips, resources, and recipes.

Thread starter question: What did you eat yesterday?


File: 1492125766987.png (7.64 MB, 300x300, Eating Good and Cheap.pdf)

Here's what I had yesterday:
Breakfast: Generic grape nuts, whole unsweetened yogurt, and strawberry preserves in a bowl

Lunch: frozen leftover chili mixed with leftover rice, with green tea for a drink.

Dinner: Fried rice made with leftover rice, leftover pulled chicken, broccoli, celery, onions, garlic, and some spices. Today's lunch is leftovers of that fried rice.

I used to post a lot of simple recipes on /diy/ but there was very little demand for it. Hope this time it'll pick up.
Muesli with milk
Chicken stewed with potatoes, carrots and onions
Orange and banana


God I desperately need this thread.
I have a limited cooking knowledge, and I'm sick of cooking the same soykaf over and over to eat.

For breakfast I make a sangwich with cream cheese, gouda, ham and tomatoes, and yesterday I made spinach for dinner. I'm looking for easy and healthy dinner options.

This Anarchist Cookbook has actual recipes.


I just wanted to point everyone to https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/
They have great recipes that are both healthy and easy to prepare.


Just looking through it, I was mildly disappointed that the recipe for tortilla chips didn't include a recipe for making tortillas. I recommend making tortillas to anyone: corn tortillas are easiest to make, incredibly easy. And tasty.



Now this is cyber as fuarrrk.


What cookware do you have? What is your time constraint? How many people you cook for? Without that, "easy and healthy dinner" is 80% of all recipes ever.
>inb4 ramen is /cyb/ :DDD


I cook for myself and my waifu. I eat pretty much eveything, but she's really selective, so that limits my options. We like to eat well cooked meat vegetable combinations more than carbohydrates though.

I have a sous vide, pressure cooker, various pots with lids and skillets without lids. Thanks for any advice :3


have you considered variations on rice & beans? those in & of themselves are a complete protein, but you can easily combine them with steamed/sauteed vegetables and whatever meat you'd like as a quick, simple, cheap, and tasty meal. it can be quite plain (not sure what your SO's selectiveness looks like), but this simple backbone can be turned into much, much more with the addition of other ingredients and cooking techniques. my previous partner and i lived off of a 50lb bag of rice, dried beans by the pound, and fresh produce (with occasional meat add-ons; we got our meat fix via eating out.)

lots of good resources in this thread, thanks for sharing.


Two eggs, a bit of butter and oil in a pan, scramble. Can of baked beans, heat up in same or different pan.
Saxon breakfast in less than 10 minutes.

Boil quinoa in a pot, add salt or soy sauce to taste. Empty the pot and Throw some diced tomatoes in. Let them crack and "sweat", its ok to have black charred spots. Salt, oil and oregano.
Mix quinoa, tomato and a cheese of your choice. Easy veggie lunch.

I'm very busy throughout the day, so I try to keep my meals as simple as possible to save time. Often this means instant noodles with steamed veggies and sesame oil, or pasta and canned tomatoes, seasoned with basil.

This is one of my favourites, and takes barely any effort to make:
- rice
- canned black beans (rinsed)
- canned diced tomatoes (drained)
- cumin, curry powder, salt, pepper, vinegar
Just throw them all together. It tastes delicious and only requires about 10 minutes of actual preparation, aside from waiting for the rice to cook. And if you have a rice cooker it becomes even easier.

If anyone else has some super quick/easy recipes, I'd love to hear them.


What do you use condiments with, Lain?

I love the taste of mayo, ketchup and mustard, however they steal all the flavor from any meal. If i make pasta and put in some ketchup, the pasta will taste only like ketchup. I'm looking for places where the condiment only compliments the food, instead of stealing it away.

The only combination that seems to work a little is tuna with mayo, other than that i can't find anywhere to fit in these condiments, even though i really like them.

Recommending this book, How Not To Die by Dr. Greger.
It's the best food information source I've found to avoid all the internet FUD around nutrition.


Yesterday it was green tea with ginger and fruit salad for breakfast and through the morning, for lunch I made puree+legumes+onion+garlic+spices hamburgers (covered in a mix of roasted seeds so it doesn't stick to the pan and I don't have to use oil. That's one of my favorite quick yet delicious recipes, >>1083); fruit, tea and leftover hamburgers throughout the afternoon and coffee for dinner (I fuarrrked up right there).

I just use spices. They completely rock, throw some at the veggies while you're boiling them, varying every time so you get the hand of it with time. Vegan cooking is cool because with vegetables it's very hard to fuarrrk the meal up, it's fine at worst, mistakes and all.


It might sound corny but the best thing you can do is experiment. Take things around your kitchen and throw them together. Here's some recommendations:

- Read "Professional Cooking" attached to >>208 and learn basic cooking/cutting techniques or "procedure" in cook jargon.

- Get really cheap bulk food from the grocery store (for example cabbage was 0.10USD/lb a while back) and figure out what you can all do with it. Become a master of this organism and figure out a way to make it work in multiple dishes.

- Remember that 1000+ years ago most people were just putting soykaf in pots and pans over a fire, and here we are with fully stocked kitchens and refrigeration. Get a bit scrappy and embrace the cooking instinct. Look into "ethnic food" that civilizations (Indians, Chinese, Germanic, Slavic, first nations, etc.) would eat as staples. These are the building blocks of modern food, and learning to make food from many civilizations opens up your horizons to different flavors and textures.

After a month or so of doing this, you'll learn to eat even your worst creations, but with practice you'll get better and better. You'll make a lot of mistakes but learning to cook includes learning how to rebound from mistakes.

I have all those ingredients and will try making it when I get home!

that last one is super important to read all the way thru btw. super important.


Ketchup is used for sweet-and-sour sauce, but that is of course a very dominant flavour.
I often use mustard in my salad dressings.

You can make a very unique pasta sauce using mustard with:
- 2 table spoons soy sauce
- 4 tea spoons mustard
- 2 tea spoons ground curcuma
- 3 tea spoons sugar
- 1-2 cloves of garlic
If you don't like raw garlic, I recommend throwing the cooked pasta and the sauce in a pan and frying it. Bitter vegetables like spinach or courgetes also taste very good in it.


Of course you'll have to crush or dice the garlic.


The finer you dice it the stronger the flavor gets btw.


trick an old chef taught me when i mentioned how much I love garlic.

crush the garlic with your blade, then dice it as fine as possible. the trick, though, is to let the garlic sit for 10-15 minutes. it gets stronger. anyone who likes garlic, especially raw garlic, should give it a shot.


You ever just eat a piece of toast with butter, diced garlic, and salt? I do that when I'm sick sometimes, clears out your sinuses.


I love garlic, thanks for the tip.

Also, please keep the pdf's coming.


haven't made that, but an old coworker convinced me to try chewing a raw garlic clove for clearing sinuses, and healing up when you're sick.
it's tough; you can only do it for so long (if you're really chewing) before the intensity becomes unbearable, but it works wonders for blocked sinuses.
the con, however, is that you and seven generations hence will be cursed with the scent of garlic.
