now that i am finally back to health, i can't keep away from the kitchen. i don't head-cook at school and so i haven't had the chance to be creative in a really long time.
here are some easy and delicious snacks to keep you busy this quarantine season–
Caprese Toast with a Poached Egg
Caprese is probably one of my all-time favorite flavor combos and this toast is the perfect quick breakfast. Heat a saucepan and wait for the water to boil. Add in a tablespoon of white vinegar. Bring water down to a simmer. Create a mini whirlpool in the water and gently crack and pour your egg into the whirlpool. Keep the water spinning so that the whites form gently around your yolk. I usually keep my egg in there for 3 minutes but you can adjust the timing depending on how runny you like your eggies. Meanwhile, toast a piece of sourdough and spread a thin layer of basil pesto. Add two slices of tomato followed by mozzarella. When you take your poached egg out, use a spoon with a sieve and lay it on a paper towel for a minute or two to set. Lay your egg on top and finish with a splash of salt, pepper, and balsamic vinegar. Enjoy!
So easy to make and your friends will think you're a mf chef. Before you can indulge in this INSANE toast, you gotta pickle some onions. Slice them real thin and leave them in a tub of apple cider vinegar in the fridge for at least one hour. Toast a slice of multigrain bread. Add fresh avocado, feta cheese, and pickled onion on top. Some people do radish and cilantro. I love to add a bit of fresh lemon juice. Dig in!
Ultimate Girly Salad
My dad is NOT a fan of strawberries in salad because they are too "girly" and so my mom have nicknamed this the ultimate girly salad. Don't worry though, this salad in incredible according to any and every gender lol. Start my washing some spring salad mix. Wash and cut fresh strawberries. Candy your walnuts by coating them in sugar and placing them under low heat on a saucepan. Stir frequently. Cook and add in some bacon bits. Toss in some goat cheese. To make the vinaigrette, combine dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, honey, and oil until it tastes the way you like. Don't forget to add salt and pepper. Drizzle it over your salad and enjoy!
i will make some more cooking posts soon for more entrees and desserts so stay tuned.
goodluck and happy cookin
