Recipes for those who don't like to cook
All recipe websites I’ve come across have one thing in common - they are made by people who love to cook. I don’t. I want a high return on investment - maximum amount of flavour and nutritional benefit for minimum amount of effort and/or time.
I made this online collection of my favourite recipes to address 3 of my pain points:
- The daily question of what’s for lunch and what’s for dinner? I’d rather be working, running or planning my travels than thinking about what to cook. Having this online collection arranged by nutritional value (nudging me to eat different pulses, grains, nuts and mushrooms and reminding me of recipes for whatever vegetable is currently in season) makes it easy to pick something I could make for the next meal.
- If I’m heading home and I’m hungry, I want to shop on the way instead of first consulting my cookbook at home. I copy-paste the ingredient list from here, tick off the items I know I have in my kitchen, and done!
- I optimise recipes for speed and for using less items that I’ll need to wash later; I convert all amounts into grams, even for liquids, so I can add everything into a container on the scales, without dirtying any measuring devices. I don’t want to follow a recipe from another website (made by somebody who loves to cook) and re-optimise it every time.
If you find this online collection useful, please send me one high-return-on-investment recipe as a token of gratitude!
