Really can't put myself in your place because my mom cooks everything for me. She always makes sure I eat delicious nutritious food.


My diet used to be 95% nutrition bars but I started cooking about a year ago and now it's only about half. I'll always keep these bars around because they're very filling and ready to eat at any time. I want a bigger pressure cooker and bigger fridge so that I could ideally cook for a month all at once


What kind of nutrition bars? There's a few I like -- Belvita, Nature Valley, and Kind make nice ones -- but they get a bit bland if you eat them too often.

Mostly these, but I mix in other stuff I don't remember to see if I can find anything else. I get sick of everything else pretty fast

gonna try making some barbecue sauce
I googled it and have no idea which is actually good, so I'm starting with https://www.hippressurecooking.com/pressure-cooker-bbq-sauce/ because it uses tomatoes and prunes instead of ketchup and sugar like the others I saw

also I think I'm going to get a instant pot fryer model so I can pressure cook and air fry with the same device. There's recipes where you pressure cook or saute something and then you can just air fry it without changing containers which seems really nice

File:[SubsPlease] RPG Fudousan ….jpg (116.79 KB,1280x720)

I didn't like it yesterday when it was fresh, but after refrigeration it goes well with some chicken I made: https://www.pressurecookrecipes.com/instant-pot-chicken-breast/
Prunes as a main BBQ sauce ingredient is pretty neat and I feel better eating it than the processed stuff with corn syrup and preservatives and such.
I've said it before multiple times, but this pressure cooker is so great. Best lazy tool for cooking ever.

That seems like a really bad idea. That much sugar and acid in the morning is bad for various reasons.
As for taste, eh, fruit should accompany oats and not the other way around.

Apparently it was a limited item, and was seemingly scooped up by scalpers. Oh well, not like I was going to try it anyways. Despite my love for citrus, having it on cereal just doesn't feel right.


File:[SubsPlease] Shachiku-san ….png (1016.44 KB,1280x720)

I made apple cinnamon oatmeal yesterday and potato salad today, both with the pressure cooker. I don't like potato salad, but my mom seems to like it. Hooray!
But, I'm reminded again that cutting stuff up takes so much time. I need a machine to help automate this...


File:1645448480784.png (3.06 MB,2500x1778)

I made sour cream porridge for dinner today.
It looks and (probably) tastes like glue, but I like it every now and then. You top it with sugar, cinnamon, and some butter. It's also very filling.


I watch nice food videos on youtube and imagine I can taste it.


File:1542053127322.png (1.1 KB,304x384)

Those videos are pure torture.
If I had the money, I would travel to Asia just for the amazing-looking food there.

Made a huge batch of beef and broccoli stir fry so that I could have some later for supper but I ended up eating the entire thing in one go. I also had to use way more oil than I originally wanted because the broccoli just kept soaking up all the oil.

I think I could make this...


File:IMG_0131.png (1.52 MB,1200x1298)

I made big pot of chicken noodle soup stuff.
I added peas and bowtie macaroni, but less liquid because I'm going to freeze at least half of it and it needs to take up less space.

In other news I got my old flip phone to connect to my computer with bluetooth so I can actually share its blurry images


what is that rubbery looking thing?


a hotdog.


I thought hotdog was sausage inside a slit bread.


do you think they eat this with chop sticks?
I think it works with both. The technical name for those used in hot dogs is frankfurter I think although the ones in the video look more like knacks to me.


I just cook my favourite food, spaghetti.
I love spaghetti.


File:[LoopSubs] Machikado Mazok….jpg (416.93 KB,1920x1080)

Made a giant batch of potato soup. Has anyone ever done research to see if soup was more or less efficient when it comes to space? Soup can be quite filling, but it's very liquidy so I wonder if the water is wasted space in the fridge/freezer. I guess in theory you could boil it to reduce the amount of water before freezing, but that probably messes things up.


Try removing some of the water and blending the rest to make a thick viscous soup. Cauliflower is good for those kinds of soups.


Oh, I've heard of that cauliflower thing before. Does it not impart any flavor? It doesn't look like something that would taste good at all


You do it because it does taste good. Eat your vegetables or no choccy milk for you.


File:[MoyaiSubs] Mewkledreamy M….jpg (247.69 KB,1920x1080)

But it would be used as a thickening agent in this case and not for flavor. This potato soup has carrots, onions, garlic and celery in it so it's already decent healthy I think, or at least far healthier than the stuff I was eating this time last year.
( https://thecleaneatingcouple.com/instant-pot-potato-soup/ )
The problem is I can't just make a small amount of it, either way I'm using a big pot and the cooking time never changes, so experimenting is something I'm avoiding for the time being.


Getting rid of the water is the thickening agent. I mean like removing multiple glasses of water so it's soggy vegetables in 1 cm of water before you start blending it.


Oh I misread your first reply. Yeah, but I think I can't really just remove water like that because the stuff is mixed in with it. The "reduction" process where you boil it so the water evaporates seems to be what people favor in general.
Well, maybe it'll thicken overnight or something...


File:[MoyaiSubs] Mewkledreamy M….jpg (228.49 KB,1920x1080)

I've been wondering about what kind of green healthy stuff I could add to rice or other simple dishes that have a mild or non-existent flavor when mixed with other stuff.
Pressure cooking does a good job of obliterating its annoying texture, so I can eat things I normally can't stand like carrots.
Maybe something like kale or other leafy things? Burroko burroko burrokori would be nice, but that stuff looks too firm and complex to be broken down into a gelatin-like form.



File:HG040101.jpg (77.59 KB,800x600)

I think I will make a potato, broccoli, and sausage casserole with sauteed mushrooms tonight. I don't want to wait for the potatoes to boil, so I'll try and finely dice them and cook them in the oven with the rest of the ingredients.


That's an interesting combination. Is that everything that's in it? What about spices and stuff?


File:ma3.jpg (143.46 KB,1193x899)

Potato, broccoli, leek, chorizo, chili, and white sauce (salt, pepper, nutmeg), and shredded cheese.
It didn't turn out very good. I don't think I made enough sauce, so it became more like baked vegetables with chorizo and undercooked potatoes with crumbly bechamel rather than a gratin/casserole.

I think I will eat out tomorrow...

fried chicken in 3 methods: karaage, tempura, and panko
karaage tastes the best for me and the preparation is also the simplest, it also makes the least mess in the oil, but it depends on seasoned karaage powder that i have to buy in japanese stores
tempura is fluffy and crispy but i need some extra seasoning since itself tastes like nothing, also i need to mix tempura flour with water so its an extra step
couldn't make the panko method work, had to beat eggs and press the chicken into it and in the end it didn't stick and made a mess in the oil, the taste also wasn't great, so never did that again


Yesterday I took out raw fish out of the fridge, kept it for later(eating it would have been part of watching a new show) after stuffing myself. Too stuffed to eat the raw fish.

Got hungry again so stuffed myself and again there's no space for the raw fish which was favorably room temperatured by that time. Half a day has passed so I had to put the raw fish with sauce back to the fridge.

Today will be the day. I already cut it into small pieces.

made somen with natto and iwashi tsukudani for dinner
easy to prepare and tasty


File:51262922_p0.png (846.89 KB,800x1000)

Made oven roasted potatoes with frozen "fish & chips" fish.
Not exactly like that Vietnamese noodle soup I had yesterday but it was decent enough as a 2-lazy-2-cook meal.


Today I came to an important conclusion in food theory: if the food is made spicy enough, the eating organism won't realize that the food would have been boring, undersalted etc. otherwise.


I think that's how spices work in general?


Thats the point, I used to make this really low effort fried rice with chicken that was completely tasteless, so I would dump sriracha in it until it tasted like something

made choco moose
fuwa fuwa


Bought some mozzarella cheese sticks that aren't super great so I got the idea to put them in a brine solution consisting of of a salt+pepper+dried onion spice blend and then microwaved it until boiling. Then, I poured off the excess water, kneaded the cheese into a ball and drained a bit more moisture. It tastes pretty great, but I didn't measure out how much of the spice I put in so my cheese is probably like 200% the daily recommended value of sodium. I need a cheese press too.

Have been playing some Fallout New Vegas recently and noticed a cooking recipe in the community content area. I was thinking it might have been an actual tutorial for the game, but nope! It's an actual recipe!



ate rice with chickpeas, bellpepper and chocolate
surprisingly good


Chocolate? How did you make that work? I can't imagine that chocolate would be go well with those other ingredients.


dark choco, added a slight bitter flavor that was pretty nice
either way i usually mix stuff up based on texture instead of taste

Do you ever make mashed potatoes? It's very simple and tastes miles better than that powder stuff. I just made some along with a mushroom and reindeer stew.

>Do you ever make mashed potatoes?
I've made them a a few times this year. I think I try to eat baked potatoes more because there isn't a bunch of butter in it. (I eat them plain or with ketchup).
Mashed potatoes don't seem to keep very well, either- they seem to get watery

Made in Abyss really showing off exotic foods that I wish existed so I could try. Guess I'll settle for boiled eggs and try to make hashbrowns tomorrow. Though, what's a good recipe for them...


Love hashbrowns.


Love hashbrowns, baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, sometimes the cheese potatoes, and tatertots.


>Made in Abyss really showing off exotic foods that I wish existed so I could try
I don't want to try that one guy's fried nut.

Been eating lots of roasted, salted cashews lately. They're pretty nice.

I'm going to make some macaroni salad soon. I need to buy some ingredients first, but I tried some premade stuff from the grocery store and it was really good. I don't like the texture of the peppers or celery in it, though, so I think I'll exclude those.
I think this recipe is the one I'll try https://www.pressurecookingtoday.com/pressure-cooker-amish-macaroni-salad/
Too much sugar, though, so I think I'll exclude that. I started cooking so I can avoid that kind of garbage.
I looked at other recipes and they have stuff like ham, peas or pickles in them so I might try adding a couple of those.


Good luck.


File:[SubsPlease] Tokyo Mew Mew….jpg (248.63 KB,1280x720)

Made it, but I don't like it. I wonder why the store stuff was so good. Maybe I should have saved the box with the ingredient list, although I remember it having a bunch of nonsensical chemical names that are rather meaningless.

File:quinoasq.jpg (76.3 KB,1000x1000)

I've made quinoa a few times now and I think I found a new food that I'll eat pretty often because it's so easy to make. It's just the quinoa seeds pressure cooked with chicken broth. Specifically I use the 'better than bullion' stuff I mentioned a year ago.
After I cook it for 10 minutes I add some frozen peas and carrots and it seems like a pretty healthy meal. I can get like 8 meals out of it.
Also, if you didn't know, it's a South American thing and it's pronounced "keen wah"


I don't want to 'quote' all this:

Quinoa is better than white rice because of its higher nutritional benefits such as:

-Quinoa has a lower glycemic index than white rice, which means it does not spike your blood sugar level quickly.
-Quinoa is rich in both fiber and protein, contains a much higher amount of other nutrients, and has a similar fluffy texture to the rice. A cup of quinoa contains twice more protein and about 5 g more fiber than white rice.
-Quinoa contains fewer calories and carbohydrates than white rice.
-Unlike rice, quinoa fibers help to lower cholesterol and control blood sugar levels.
-Unlike rice, quinoa reduces your blood fat levels after a meal called triglycerides.
-Quinoa has a higher amount of all essential amino acids. A higher amount of lysine and tryptophan (amino acid) in quinoa confers it with fascinating therapeutic properties.
-Quinoa is much higher in mineral content such as calcium (three times), iron (five times), potassium (eight times), magnesium, phosphorus, zinc (absent in rice), and manganese (two times) than rice.

Brown rice is known as a healthier option than white rice. However, quinoa is more beneficial than brown rice because of the following reasons:

-It contains higher amounts of protein and lower carbohydrates per servings than brown rice.
-It contains all nine essential amino acids, unlike brown rice.
-It contains phytochemicals, which are substances that protect the individual from anemia, osteoporosis, and high lipid level.

curse hippies and their overpricing of anything moderately foreign
>"keen wah"
yeah it's kinwa in quechua, but in spanish and portuguese it's basically キノア


> in spanish and portuguese it's basically キノア
I had no idea Spanish and Portugese used symbols like that. Huh.
(FYI, not everyone understands Japanese)


well yes, but i'd rather use kana over the legendarily bad orthography of english


>curse hippies and their overpricing of anything moderately foreign
When I was reading up on quinoa I learned that the price tripled in a decade with 2016 at the most recent. It's probably higher now. It really does seem like a really good thing to eat, though. What thing were you looking at?

Well, I guess not everyone uses language to communicate with others.


there is kibbeh nayeeh which can be either beef or lamb
of which i am currently eating the beef variety right now
there's also usually atleast some spice mixed in too so it's not just raw meat


File:[SubsPlease] Teppen - 06 (….jpg (256.63 KB,1280x720)

Made it again with a different recipe: https://bakeatmidnite.com/deli-style-macaroni-salad/
It still doesn't' taste like the grocery stuff at all, although I didn't have any celery seed. I don't think that would add the flavor I'm looking for anyway, or any at all. Also I didn't add any green pepper, but again that wouldn't possibly add the flavor (and I never eat those chunks in it anyway).
Really, really want to get this down so I can start modifying it to make it healthy. (though it'll never be "healthy" with all that mayonnaise really)
