I know i'm not alone when I say that my husband tend's to work long hour's. Alhamdulilah, work is a blessing especially in this countrie's climate, more people are out of a job then ever before. When our partner's work shift's they can sometime's be over social hour's, and you can find yourself just cooking for one in the evening.
It's something which we all tend to look over, one time or another and we don't necessarily enjoy cooking, as there is no one to share our lovely cooked meal with.
So one evening a decided to change thing's up a little. Drop the unhealthy microwave meal's, instant noodle's and takeaway menu's! I promise that these will keep you full for longer and will have a far better taste than any manufactured meal. It's also about getting out of that laziness and being creative in the kitchen as alot of these meal's which you will see are just what I have put together, with no recipe in sight.
Here are a few simple, quick, but tasty and satisfying dishes - cooking for one:
Homemade Neapolitan Pizza
Halloumi + Egg Pitta's
Not just for breakfast ;)
Cod, Mushroom's & Pasta
Note to self; must make more sauce next time!
Jacket PotatoThere really is potato under that mountain of cheese.
My name is Yara and i'm a cheese monster.
TIP: use spare leftover's for topping's!
Broccoli Cheese Spaghetti
|(much more tastier than what it looks like! I over boiled my broccoli, doh!)|
And the last but not least, my favourite:
Italian Chicken & Spinach Noodle's
Fine egg noodle's - one nest
Baby spinach - half a bag (100g i believe)
Lemon (to clean and season chicken)
2 garlic cloves
Dice chicken breast
(MISSING PHOTO) ADD SPINACH
add boling water and 1 chicken stock cube
I hope you enjoyed, and let me know what your favourite dishes for one are, as I love to try new thing's when cooking.
