Simple comfort food which hits the spot every time.
Plain rice porridge (or congee, they're the same I think) with sides:
I only have this at home and our little spread usually includes pickled cabbage, fried Spam, canned black bean fish, salted eggs and the green stuff in the jar is actually shredded olive. Super delicious.
A dish which I have discovered recently and really like is the Baked Sushi Rice from Cocobella Ballerina:
Very easy to put together, I forgot the spring onion but it was still delicious. Not heavy at all and so so addictive! Everyone in the family loved it. Success!
Another recipe which I came across (also on Cocobella Ballerina) was the Shepard's Pie which I modified a little..
The mince was made with a recipe I always use for sloppy joes or bolognaise, but the mash was made as per the link above. I've never had cauliflower in my mash before and now I don't think I will make it without ever again. It was really good and I liked the different textures in my mash, a mix of smooth potato and bits of crunchy cauliflower. Yums! Plus, more cauliflower = less carbs as well, WIN! :D Thank you for sharing your recipes, Lisa!
I'm a sucker for one-pot-wonders and I have a folder of recipes (cut-outs from magazines as well as saved from blogs/websites online) which I have yet to attempt. Minimal prepping, easy to make, everything goes into one pot/dish, less cleaning up.. what's not to like?
Hoping to have some time this weekend to make another recipe I've been eye-ing.. Chicken Rice! The recipe I've saved has instructions for everything, from the chicken to the rice and even the tangy, pungent, chilli sauce. Mmmmmm. Getting hungry thinking bout it.
On a side note, I only have one more week to complete the Kyoto Ancient Walk paper structure! Eeeps!!
