Quarantine 2020: Easy to prep food

When coronavirus was declared pandemic, it was few days before our flight back to Toronto from Asia. It was not the best time to be traveling at the time but it’s not as if we went on a vacation. We did a lot of errands in the 3 weeks that we were in Asia. Being in Asia, Philippines specifically, is like a treat in general. Regardless of the heavy traffic, I always felt like I’m being taken care of. One thing I miss most in Asia? RICE. They have great quality of rice, most especially in the Philippines. When I finally came back to Toronto, I needed to adjust again to a struggling independent human being. I have to make sure I prepare my food. More so now that I cant get out because I’m self quarantined

I wanna thank my friends and family who made sure me and my partner have groceries at home. They have been replenishing our household needs since we came back

I have been spending some time in the kitchen since with work from home set up I can prepare my meal everyday with no problem. There are some challenges esp when people book you on back to back meetings but I get to continue afterwards anyway. And since I have some time in my hand and not wasted on driving or commute, I’ll post my food and easy steps how to make it.

Avocado Toast

  • Toast the bread for 3 minutes depending on your preference (you may want to add butter. For me, I like it without)
  • Small avocado smashed
  • Squeeze in some lemon juice on the avocado
  • Fried egg

You can add some salt and pepper. For me, I also want to add some hot sauce.

Wonton Noodle Soup

  • Boil the Wonton (or any dumplings of your choice) on Chicken stock
  • Boil prepacked egg noodle (or any noodle of choice) on water separately; If you have more time, make egg noodle from scratch (found this recipe which is relatively similar to how delbert does his)
  • Wash the bokchoy and add it in the almost done dumplings
  • Add in the noodles and wait for 3-5 minutes on low heat

Canadian Bacon and Omelette

How to make the Omelette

  • Cook the spinach in Olive Oil (you can put salt but I don’t)
  • I cook the eggs on another pan and when I like the consistency, I add in the Spinah and mozzarella cheese
  • I like it more runny so when I fold it when I think it’s getting “well cooked”
  • I remove it from the heat, fold the egg to half, put Mozzarella on top, and cover it for 3-5 minutes to melt the cheese

Green bowl

  • Boil some broccoli
  • Boil an egg
  • “heat up” or “cook” the tuna in oil and garlic
  • Tossed it in a bowl with brown rice

German Sausage Omelette

  • Cut Bratwurst cheddar to pieces (you can use any sausage) and cook it in vegetable oil
  • Cook eggs and mixed in the cooked Bratwurst
  • In a separate pan, cook sliced onion; Depends on how you want your onions to be cooked, for me, I want it not so caramelized
  • Toss in brown rice, omelette, and sliced onion
  • Garnish with some dried parsley

Chicken Stirfry Noodle

Similar egge noodle what we used in the Wonton Noodle Soup above

  • Boiled prepacked egg noodle (or any noodle of choice) on water separately; If you have more time, make egg noodle from scratch (found this recipe which is relatively similar to how delbert does his)
  • In a pan with vegetable oil, cook the sliced chicken first and then add the bokchoy when the chicken is almost done
  • Toss in the egg noodle and season it with soysauce (for alternative you can use coconut amino)

Tuna Zucchini Pasta

  • If you have vegetable slicer, you can use the spiral blade to slice your zucchini; As an alternative you can cut it thinly
  • For the sauce, I cooked tuna in garlic and cream; I add in the garlic (i liked it burnt) and then pour in the cream until it thickens then add the tuna when I like the consistency of the cream
  • I added some egg so I can finish my boiled eggs in the fridge
