When all hope is lost… in the kitchen

If you are reading this now you have probably seen all these delicious recipes and thought to yourself “Dude… They are way too complicated!”. If frying an egg is one of the more complicated tasks you do in the kitchen, don’t worry, I got your back. In this section of the cookbook, the holiday part of the recipes is not so important. What is important is to make something really easy that tastes good.

Let’s crack on!

 

Recipe 1: Banana Pancakes

Let’s start with something that is super easy to make; Banana Pancakes. They are my GO-TO for when I want to make something FAST and TASTY. You can use Banana Pancakes as

  • a tasty breakfast,
  • an awesome lunch waiting in your backpack,
  • an easy-to-make dessert,
  • or a delicious in-between-meals snack.

Do you know what the best part is? You only need two ingredients; bananas and eggs. That’s it!

1 banana + 1 egg = 1 banana pancake

1 + 1 = 1 (simple math)

 

Instructions

  1. Squeeze the banana with your hands, with the peel on to make it softer. Take off the peel and put the banana in a bowl. Then use a fork to mash the banana.
  2. Add an egg (and yes, that would be without the eggshell). Use the fork to whip it together. Now you have the batter.  
  3. Preheat a frying pan on medium heat with a tablespoon of coconut oil. Pour the batter into the frying pan. Fry the pancake on both sides.

 

TA-DA! Now you have delicious a delicious banana pancake.

If you want to get fancy add fresh berries on top.

If you feel like a daredevil you can use a waffle iron and make banana pancake-waffles. This can get messy. Do this at your own risk.

 

Recipe 2: THE HOLY GUACAMOLE

Maybe you are ok at cooking the meat but are really bad at making a side dish. Whenever you try to make a salad, it always ends up boring and tasteless.

The solution: THE HOLY GUACAMOLE!

THE HOLY GUACAMOLE can turn almost any boring salad into a tasteful salad. And this recipe is, of course, easy to make.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • ¼ of a red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 clove of minced garlic (finely chopped or use a garlic press)
  • juice from ½ of a lime
  • salt (pink Himalayan salt or sea salt)
  • pepper

Instructions

  1. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Slice the meat in each half into squares with a blunt knife and scoop it out with a spoon. Place it in a bowl.
  2. Mash the avocado with a fork. Don’t overdo it! The guacamole should be a little chunky.
  3. Add the finely chopped onion, the garlic, the juice from the lime and add salt and pepper to taste. Stir it together.

 

Voilà! You have just made THE HOLY GUACAMOLE.

You can add some freshly cut chili to make it spicier.

Recipe 3: The Everything Soup… That is not a soup

We have finally arrived at the main course. This recipe is a little bit different than most recipes. When you have made the base of The Everything Soup you can add all sorts of meat and vegetables in it. That is why I call it The Everything Soup.

Have fun and experiment. I believe in you!

 

The base

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of coconut milk
  • 2 tsp of red curry paste
  • 1 tbsp of finely chopped ginger
  • ½ an onion (fine chopped)
  • 2 cloves of garlic (finely chopped or use a garlic press)
  • salt (pink Himalayan salt or sea salt)
  • pepper

Instructions

  1. Pour the coconut milk in a saucepan on medium heat
  2. Add the red curry paste, the ginger, the onion, and the garlic. Stir.
  3. Let it simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.

 

Add some freshly cut chili to make it spicier.

How easy was that?! With this base, you add a lot of things in it. You can make a vegetarian dish or you can add meat to it.

Here are my go-to ingredients:

  • cauliflower
  • broccoli
  • celery
  • carrots
  • bell pepper
  • chicken (fry the chicken before you add it to the soup, you don’t want salmon(ella))

 

Chop it up and add it to The Everything Soup. I often use this recipe when I have vegetables that I need to eat before they go bad.

Bon appétit!

Now you have three simple recipes you can add to your cooking-arsenal. If these recipes were too difficult, then you are truly lost and I can’t help you.

Enjoy your holiday!
