I’ve mentioned before that I don’t cook much here in Malaysia. It’s both too convenient to eat out and too hot to cook, so I usually end up either going out, ordering take-out or preparing something that doesn’t require too much time by the stove. Basically, my goal is to prepare the food as quickly and effortlessly as possible – the least amount of actual cooking required, the better.
So, I thought I would share one day of meals from the “no-effort-required” kitchen of superkimbo:
A total of two minutes preparation, consisting of:
- Fruit smoothie with frozen strawberries, fresh bananas, and orange juice.
- Whole wheat toast with Nutella. If you don’t know Nutella, you need to go to the store now and buy some. It’s a chocolate and hazelnut spread that I first started eating when I lived in Italy. I could subsist all day on Nutella alone. Try it!
Perhaps 5 minutes of prep required here:
- Cranberry juice with ice. What is the point of drinking if you don’t have ice in the glass?
- Toasted whole-wheat bread with tuna, pickles, sprouts, and melted cheddar cheese. Otherwise known as a “tuna melt.” Basically I could eat this every day if my sister hadn’t told me that eating tuna more than twice a week is unhealthy. Can someone please disprove that for me? I’m suffering here.
The ultimate lazy dinner:
- Apparently I have no matching drink at dinner time… Hmmm…
- Cous cous, what a wonderful food: boil the water, put the cous in, let sit for five minutes, and it’s done! Mix through a little sauteed zucchini and asparagus with a little olive oil, garlic and onion, and it’s a taste sensation!
