Easy to make recipes - May 3rd 2015, 03:40 PM

I thought we could share our easy to make recipes, something that is very simple to make and not a lot of preparation involved to make a healthy meal or snack.

I really like this bean salad I've been making. All I use is canned beans (mixed or you can buy a few different canned beans and mix them together). I usually drain and wash them first and let them sit while I put frozen corn in boiling hot water on the stove. I cut red onion and put it into a bowl.

So after I do that, I drizzle some honey, sesame seed oil, and variations of pepper that I mix with and I toss it together. Once the corn is cooked I add it to the salad.

Ingredients:
Canned Beans (mixed beans or any kind of canned bean)
Frozen Corn
Red Onion
Honey
Sesame Seed Oil
Pepper


What recipes do you make?

I made banana pancakes a few days ago they were really really simple to make. I followed the recipe from this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4UVmQtPo6I

I overcooked the one slightly but the other turned out fine

Ingredients:
1 banana
2 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder

I made potatoes and broccoli the other day. No written recipe but I can tell you what I did.
For potatoes:
rinse well and peel. Then cut into 4 and put into pot
Add about a half a cup of water. Put to boil.

Then the dressing is just olive oil and salt. It's actually really yummy. You can also make it into a salad by adding lettuce, tomato, cucumber, garlic, lemon, soy sauce, and olive oil.

Broccoli:
rinse well
then put into a strainer and into a pot. Cover it and let it cook :P

I added soy sauce with it. After it finished cooking

Re: Easy to make recipes - May 14th 2015, 09:25 PM

I have a couple that are good.
Tonight I did chicken and couscous wraps:

You need
- Chicken breast, you can use cooked or buy it raw and cook it yourself with some spices.
- Tortilla wraps
- Lettuce
- Couscous

Spread the lettuce over the wrap, layer some couscous on top, then add the chicken. You can experiment with different sauces or adding onion, pepper or sweetcorn as well. Whatever you like in a wrap.
There was loads left over so I've made it into a salad for lunch tomorrow - 2 for 1!

Chicken & vegetable bake
You need:
- Chicken breast (I actually use quorn chicken but it's up to you)
- Whichever vegetables you like, I think the best ones are broccoli and cauliflower but you can add peas, carrots, sweetcorn, whatever you like.
- Sachet of cheese sauce

You can either use a packet of cheese sauce and make it according to the instructions, or make your own using milk, butter, lots of grated cheese, and a little bit of all purpose flour. Either way, make a cheese sauce.
Cook the chicken and vegetables and put the chicken in an oven dish. Layer the veg on top and then cover it all with the cheese sauce. You can grate cheese over the top and crumble a slice of bread too to give it a crispy topping. Stick it in the oven at 180C for 20-25 minutes until the cheese on top has melted and the breadcrumbs are nice and brown.

Finally, one of my all time favourites, fried rice!
Very simple!
You need:
- Rice
- Sesame Oil (Olive is fine too, sesame just has a better flavour for this)
- Soy sauce
- 1 egg

Cook the rice as normal. The best way to do this is to add 1 cup of water for every 1/2 cup of rice. Then just add a little salt and leave it alone until all the water has been absorbed.
Put a little sesame oil in a frying pan and let it heat up. Add the rice and watch out for it popping and flying out, it can get messy!
Fry the rice for a few minutes and then crack an egg into a cup and use a fork to give it a good mix with some more sesame oil, you don't need much.
Move the rice to one side of the pan and tip the egg/oil mix into the other. Leave everything alone for a few seconds, ideally the edges of the eggy mix should be going white but it's not essential.
Mix the rice in with the egg and oil and add as much or as little soy sauce as you like. Heat it until it's piping hot and steaming, mixing it the whole time. It won't taken any more than a minute or two after the soy sauce is added.
Serve it up!
You can add chicken or veg before adding the soy sauce if you like, or make up some curry sauce to put over it. It's really tasty when done right!

I'm a massive sweet tooth, so I'm sharing my top two favourite recipes to share with you guys. My two recipes are very sweet, and it's best to eat in tiny portions ^^


Passion fruit Fridge Cake

397g Condensed Milk
1 packet Marie Biscuit
1 small tin of Passionfruit Pulp
1 packet of Lemon Jelly
250ml boiling Water

1. Add boiling water to jelly powder, stir until dissolved
2. Stir in Passionfruit pulp and Condensed Milk
3. Line a dish with a layer of biscuit, cover with condensed milk mixture. Repeat layers, ending with condensed mixture.
5. Decorate with pipe cream and grated chocolate.
6. Store in fridge for an hour or until cold.

Microwave Fudge

1 tin Condensed Milk
2 cups Brown Sugar
125 grams butter

1. Pull all three ingredients into a microwaveable container and put in the microwave for 2 minutes. Take out, mix for a minute. Cook again for 3 minutes, then mix again then cook for 3 minutes. Repeat.
2. When the fudge starts to come together, pour into a greased tin (spray oil or baking paper), let it cool in the fridge, before cutting into squares.

* Beat well each time *

Enjoy!

Breakfast:
8oz milk 2%
150g egg white
80g hashbrown
4oz ground turkey (3oz cooked)

Mix with wing sauce.

[edited]

(I eat this with 1/2 cup oat meal, and bacon as well, but I weight train...)

140g egg whites
1/2 cup quick oats
1/4 teaspoon olive oil
(make together for pancakes)

then top with
100g vanilla greek yogurt
100g thawed frozen strawberries

I don't have the macros handy on this one, but its delicious, and protein packed.

Re: Easy to make recipes - June 5th 2015, 12:18 AM

This is a nice thread idea! I have a simple recipe I'd like to share.
  • Heat steamed broccoli
  • Pour sliced potatoes into a microwavable bowl or heat in a pan (canned sliced potatoes are quicker as they usually only need to be warmed, but sometimes it's still good to cook them in a pan)
  • Mix broccoli and potatoes in salad bowl, add onions (cooked if you prefer) and shredded lettuce
  • Pour melted cheddar cheese over top and mix together

The cheese goes great with broccoli and potatoes, but it's not necessary as it makes the salad a bit unhealthy. I suppose it depends on preference!
