Serial Cooking -Sardines And Baked Eggs

This simple dish is nutritious.

The original recipe recommended sprinkling with fresh parsley!

I cooked it last night in about fifteen minutes.

I always make sure, I’ve plenty of sardines in the cupboard. Last night, I used some French ones from Marks and Spencer.

Conclusion

Could this be the perfect supper for one during COVID-19?

Serial Cooking – Pasta With Yogurt Sauce For One

This is based on a Lyndsey Bareham recipe, which I cooked in Serial Cooking – Quick Pasta For One.

Note.

  1. There’s a lot of room for error and personalisation.
  2. I suspect it works equally well with Marks and Spencer’s normal pasta.
  3. It can be cooked in about ten minutes,

‘ve cooked it perhaps twenty times now and eaten it every time.

A Quick Salad

I’m not a lover of traditional salads. So here’s a goat’s cheese, strawberry and basil salad from the Salad Bowl by Nicola Graimes.

I didn’t show the crumbling of the cheese, as I only have two hands. I just used a fork to scrape the cheese out of the packet.

I must do some more out of the book.

Green salads are so boring.

Serial Cooking – Smoked Haddock And Curried Rice

This recipe is another from Lindsey Bareham in The Times.

Lindsey called this an incredibly lazy twist on kedgeree. I have tried to make it even lazier.

Note.

  1. I started with a single Marks and Spencer’s smoked haddock. Just two pounds and no bones or skin.
  2. I hard-boiled an extra egg for the fridge
  3. I used an onion instead of shallots.
  4. I didn’t have any fresh chives or coriander

I rather liked it for a New Year’s Eve supper.

Serial Cooking Teriyaki Beef And Noodles

This is another based on a recipe from Lindsey Bareham in The Times.

The main ingredients for meal for two, are a decent sirloin steak, an onion, 100 grams of green beans, a small cup of frozen peas, 50g of noodles and some teriyaka and soy sauces.

This recipe has various options and this is my method for two small portions.

It’s certainly more interesting that steak with chips and peas.
