It's hearty, light, super easy and filling - what more would you want?

  40. Oh. Dinner. Quick dinner. Hum. "Throw together 5 minute soup". I learnt how to make it while watching a Korean variety show. Just take some miso, some random sauces, tofu, a bit of veggies, kimchi if you've, put into pot, add water, let simmer for ten minutes. Add some noodles if you're hungry.

    Whenever I make that at my parents' I get strange looks... they really don't understand where my culinary tastes come from.

    ReplyDelete
  41. My favorite dinner is pasta with a creamy tomato cheese sauce, with some garlic bread on the side. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  42. usually it's pasta, but if i can get wild salmon, i like to bake it with lemon pepper and sliced lemons on top. or marinate salmon in maple syrup, soy sauce and garlic, and then bake it! that's my true favorite. baking fish is so easy!

    ReplyDelete
  43. my favourite quickie at the moment is raw seavegetable spaghetti, cooked with yummy spices till a soup kinda thing :) some onion and mushrooms in there too, and you've' got a tasty, healthy, warming, filling and exiting bowl of February goodness in 15 minutes!

  53. In all seasons I like some pasta with dried tomatoes, black olives, chicken, Parmesan cheese and basil leaves. Seasoned with olive oil and salt.

    And if not, another dinner I often usually do is a typical sandwich of Mallorca called "pa amb oli". Consists of slices of brown bread with garlic, tomato, olive oil and sausage typical of our island (Mahon cheese, sobrasada, camaiot, ham, etc ...) This is an example: http://www.cometemallorca.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/pa-amb-oli-470x375.jpg

  77. filo pastry filled with spinach and cheese. Just need to stay 10' in the oven and it is delicious

    ReplyDelete
  78. I like to mash an avocado with some lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Mash it so that there's still some good chunks of avocado. Then spread some mayo and/or dijon mustard on really thick and crunchy whole-grain toast, top with the avocado and eat open-faced style. There's enough avocado for two pieces of toast. Makes a healthy meal with a side salad. And it only takes about five minutes!
