Leftovers

Hello 🙂

This is what I cooked yesterday for our lunch and dinner. Made a big pan of stir fried lasagna noodles ‘bolognese style’. Yes, that’s lasagna noodles just because I have ’em in my fridge since Sunday. And half of the carrot that I had use for lasagna last Sunday. Hahaha I took me a while to think of what to do with it and people who know me knows how much I hate throwing food that’s still in good condition. This meal looks like bolognese isn’t it? Ha! I didn’t use any tomato puree only 50 grams of minced beef.

Here’s the recipe:

– Leftover lasagna noodles
– 1 onion
– 3 cloves of garlic
– 6 button mushrooms
– 1/2 carrot
– 5 pieces of cili padi
– 50g of minced beef
– 1 bell peppers
– 3 tbsp of tomato sauce
– 1tbsp of oyster sauce
– 1 mug of water
– salt to taste

1. Chopped the onion, mushrooms, garlic, cili padi and carrot to make the ‘base’ and sauteed into the pan. 
2. Stir in the minced beef and add the tomato sauce and the oyster sauce.
3. Cut the peppers into big chunk and stir in as well.
4. Pour in the water and wait for the sauce to thicken. Now it’s the time to add the salt.
5. Once thickened, put in the noodles and let it simmer.
6. Served.

Note:
*you may use anything to substitute the lasagna noodles. Leftover spaghetti or macaroni would be lovely.
*basically just use any ingredients in your fridge that about to expire. It could be amazing you know!

Happy trying!!

Fried quinoa

Hello lovely people!

As some of you might know that I was getting married three weeks ago and has no clue that it is actually a little adventure when I gotta think of what to cook everyday! I have no idea too that my better half eats constantly in a large portion (will elaborate more on the next post).

Long story short, I made ‘fried quinoa’ yesterday for his lunch. He claimed that he loves it and I got the green light to cook more quinoa to replace our rice intake.

Here’s the recipe:
1 cup of quinoa
1 tbsp of olive oil
2 cloves of garlic (diced)
1 shallot (diced)
1 tbsp of soy sauce
2 eggs
1 peppers
1 handful of green beans
1 slice of chicken breast
1 cup of sweet corn (fresh not from the tin)
A pinch of salt

– pour in the quinoa into the rice cooker and let it cook by itself.
– sautèed the garlic and shallot until they soften.
– put in the chicken and cook until it’s cooked.
– next, put in the soy sauce and pour in the vegetables.
– right after that pour in the cooked quinoa.

Note:
* 1 cup quinoa = 2 cups of water.
* this meal is enough for 3 servings.

I hope you give it a try!!
