Peas and cheese

Frozen peas with cheese of choice in microwave for a minute or two until melty and cooked. :3

You can boil pasta and drain then add the peas with the cheese for a more filling dish.

You can add meat too. X3 However sometimes the meat flavor gets in between the sweet and salty melody of peas and cheese.

Imagei love eating most of the stuff on this thread, but this is my fave food right now. i make a big pot of this like once a week!


Image


coconut soup

i make things approx, but i will try to give the right amounts. however whatever you got throw it in there!

2 cans of coconut milk
2 potatoes
3 carrots
ginger cut up but large, maybe grate a little
apple

fresh greens cut up small, beet greens, kale, chard, arugula

spices: curry, cinnamon, pepper, salt +

also good:
corn
sweet potato
squash
broccoli
cabbage
insert your favorite veggie here
or non veggie here

rice
peanut butter
tofu
garlic
soy sauce
onions and garlic or leeks
! edible flowers !


add potatoes, before anything else, to a big pot less half filled with water. chop all the other ingrediants and put them in as it comes to a boil...if using rice put rice in once it boils and then turn the heat low for a while, or even off and then re heat a while later as the rice will be done. if no rice you can just boil this soup till the potatoes and carrots are mushy a little. and add the chopped up greens and whatever else for the top at the very end... or individually as you serve it

a quick soup, plus it stay good for a long time. the coconut milk fat oily stuff rises to the top of it and then hardens...seems to keep it preserved for a while, good for leftovers. so i make a big batch of this and then have it as leftovers for a couple of days.

edit:
usually i dont add the rice till day two or three. by the third day i know it has to be eaten quickly, so i will throw rice into the remaining broth, the rice soaks up the coconut milk really good...and then make a new stir fry for the rice with the veggies left.

that picture above is from when i first started making this all the time. besides the coconut and spices everything was from my garden, and + the wild onions that i am blessed with in the spring. i picked a bunch of wild onion flowers, and am growing two kinds of arugula, one with edible white flowers (roquette), and a "wild" one with spicier yellow flowers. the wild onion flowers, arugula flowers, and broccoli are on top ....the garnish on that pic.
it was so beautiful i had to take a pic of it before i ate it.

Artichoke Stew with Pine Nuts

1/2 cup red wine vinegar

36 baby artichokes (about 5 pounds)
4 ounces diced bacon (optional)
1 large onion,finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound ripe tomatoes,peeled, seeded and chopped

1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

3. Cook the bacon in a large non-reactive saucepan over medium-low heat until golden and remove with slotted spoon. Drain all but 1 1/2 tablespoons of fat from the pan and add the olive oil.

4. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 2 minutes longer, just to release its aroma. Add the tomatoes and turn the heat to medium. Cook until until the sauce is reduced, about 10 to 15 minutes. Pour in the broth or water, add the salt, pepper and bacon and bring to a boil. Drain the aritichokes well and add to the pot. Reduce to a simmer and cook, covered, until the artichokes are tender, about 15 minutes. Adjust seasonings with salt, pepper and lemon juice and serve hot.

I found two recipes for you. :)

Chunky Guacamole Recipe

Ingredients:

3 large ripe avocados
1 small red onion, finely chopped
2 small tomatoes, finely diced
Juice of 1 lemon or lime
Handful of chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Sea salt, to taste

Preparation:

Scoop flesh of ripe avocados into a large bowl. Add all other ingredients and mash lightly with a fork. Mash just enough to evenly distribute ingredients and break down avocado into chunky portions. If you want good texture, don't mash too much; mash just enough to evenly distribute the ingredients and break down the avocados into chunky portions.


Smooth Guacamole Recipe

Ingredients:

3 large ripe avocados
1 jalapeno chili, minced
Handful of chopped fresh cilantro
Juice of 1 lemon or lime
Sea salt, to taste

Preparation:

Scoop flesh of ripe avocados into a food processor. Add jalapeno chili, cilantro, lemon or lime juice, and sea salt. Blend until smooth.

Enjoy these simple and delicious guacamole dips with baked corn chips, baked crackers, or a whole grain pita. The lemon or lime juice will prevent the guacamole from browning for a few hours. To prolong freshness, arrange the avocado seeds in the serving bowl with the guacamole.

This is not food but some good recipes none the less

Kitchen Surface Cleaner that Ants Hate!

Ingredients (use vegan versions)

2 cup water
5 drops lavendar oil
5 drops tea tree oil
1/4 cup vinegar
2 teaspoons baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in spray bottle. Close TIGHTLY (nozzle too) and shake to blend. If the nozzle is left open, it may "spit" solution as the bicarb and vinegar interact. Spray on worktops, stove, cabinet fronts etc., wipe with damp cloth or sponge. The essential oils keep ants at bay. We were being taken over by black ants and after wiping down my surfaces with this, they've moved on to pastures new.

Preparation time: minimal
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Your Favorite Sugar Scrub

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

table sugar
liquid of your choice (olive oil, water, etc.)

Directions:

Dry skin is an unfortunate fact of life. Instead of spending $10 or $20 on a name-brand sugar scrub, make your own! It's easy, fun, and free when you use what you have on hand in the kitchen. And - oh yeah - it works just as good as the store bought stuff and the variations are endless!

Simply choose your sugar and mix with the slippery liquid of your choice. Adjust your amounts accordingly, depending on how "loose" your like your scrub and the amount you need for the area you want to exfoliate. It's definitely not rocket science and is impossible to mess up, so have fun with it.

Directions: Mix. Apply. Rub gently. Rinse. Feel your skin and rejoice for the power of sugar. Follow up with lotion to keep the dream alive.

Sugars:
- Table sugar: Recommended - great for the lips, face, decollette, and elsewhere.
- Brown sugar: A gentler exfoliation for very sensitive or easily irritated skin.
- Raw sugar: Be gentle...this packs a serious exfoliating punch! It's probably too rough for most skin, but can work wonders on dry heels and feet.

Some Liquid Suggestions:
- Water: Simple and easy - splash a little water on the area-to-scrub, add the sugar, and rub away.
- Oils: Olive oil; palm oil; coconut oil; vitamin E oil; glycerine/glycol, etc.
- Lotion: Insert your favorite lotion here.
- Foodstuffs: Agave nectar; your milk of choice; melted dark chocolate, and so on.


(For scrubs made with oil, any surplus can generally be stored in an air- and water-tight container for a while and not dissolve.)

Serves: Varies

Preparation time: Less than 5 minute
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Oatmeal Face Cleanser

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

3 tablespoons oatmeal
2 teaspoons witch hazel
And a few drops of water

Directions:

You want to dampen the oatmeal first and then add the witch hazel.

Add the water to make it moist.

Apply to your face with an upward and outward circular motion.

Rinse with lots of warm water.

This recipe is good for all kinds of skin. If you have dry skin add a little oil.
