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

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

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.

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.

 No.90665

>>90661
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.

 No.90667

>>90665
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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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"

 No.93927

https://www.medicinenet.com/is_quinoa_better_for_you_than_rice/article.htm
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.

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)
