Western rice soup

24 Mar

Maybe Taiwan has started to influence me, because i eat rice everyday nowadays, in my soup. Rice soup is often eaten when you’re sick or for breakfast, but I prepare my own for diner. I don’t really like the Asian version because I find it too bland, so I use the same principle to make a different one. It’s simple and convenient for students, you just need the micro-waves and 8mn!

Ingredients:
– 1 asian instant soup of your choice (they’re creamier than the western soup and don’t have the ame flavors)
– 3 table soups of rice
–  Tofu, mushrooms….whatever you want
– Spices if you want: I use curry if it can go with the instant soup

 Put your rice, soup powder and all the other things you want to add in you soup. Add enough water to cover everything, mix and put 8mn in the micro-waves. Ready!

You can put whatever you want in your soup, so it’s always different.

– 1 liter of water
– half an onion

Cut the pumpkin, the onion in small pieces and put into 1L of water with one cube of chicken broth and salt. Cook for around 15mn in the micro waves.

Microwaves: Apple-Banana Compote

1 Nov

When you don’t have an oven, that you only have a knife and a micro-wave as tools to cook, you start to think really simply. I can’t even up the egg whites, so what dessert can i possibly do?

And then you start to think. And then, what kind of easy desserts does my family do? Answer: Compote!

No sugar, only fruits to change from here, and can’t be more simple. So i here is the easy recipe:

Ingredients:
– 4 bananas
– 6 apples (small ones or 4 normal ones)
– spices (i found something with called Imperial spices with cinnamon, anise, cumin, clove, spicy seasoning) i think you can use if for gingerbread too, maybe i’ll try during winter.

Pealed and cut your apples in small pieces, do the same with your bananas, add the spicies as you like and put 10 minutes in the micro-waves. Then mix a little, and put around 8 minutes again in the micro waves. Ready to eat!

You can have it hot or cold, as you prefer.
