    Kyurizuke - Cucumber pickles

    I've changed this recipe around to suit my tastes but it makes for a delicious snack.

    -5 or so baby/mini cucumbers, generally sold in a punnet & sliced about 5mm thick
    -3 teaspoons of salt
    -dash of sesame oil, soy sauce & rice vinegar
    -kochukaru
    -quarter tsp minced ginger

    Slice cucumbers and add salt mixing well and store in fridge for 5-8mins.

    Take the cucumber from the fridge and liquid should have diffused. In a colander rinse the cucumber well then squeeze the cucumber in your fist to remove excess water.

    Mix in sesame oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, kochukaru (i'll add about 2 teaspoons but depends on how spicy you would like it) & ginger, mix well and eat.

    The longer you leave it in the fridge the more flavoursome the pickles will become.

    Fully Aussie Pizza

    A simple recipe I pondered about the other day. Yet to actually come to fruition.

    First, mix some flour and water together (damper style). Then roll it out into the shape of a pizza base.

    Next up, coat it with butter and Vegemite. Then top off with shredded cheese.

    Pop it in the oven until crispy brown and voila there you have it, Fully Aussie Pizza.

    Thoughts? :D

    Will this actually work :confused:

    Yes, should be ok, Baker's Delight sells buns with vegemite baked into them. Save some time and effort and just slather the goodies on lebanese bread. Crispy pizza. Yum.

    Got some fried rice left over from Chinese takeaway?
    You could heat it up and eat it plain, woohoo.

    Or crack an egg into the container, add a bit of chilli sauce, mix it up and whack it in the microwave for a minute.

    Grind some pepper over the top and add a splash of soy sauce. Instant Chinese omelette!

    Door stop thick sliced bread, toast first (or not), be generous with butter, add a good knifeful of crunchy peanut butter, dollop and spread some jam (strawberry or plum work best for me) on the peanut butter and top with a slab of cheddar cheese.
    Alternatively you can make the sandwich first and then pan fry in butter.
    Annnnnnd ... if you are really game ... add vegemite on the top piece.

    Otherwise make a pan fried vegemite toastie, add tomato sauce to finish. :thumbup:

    I thought I would have posted this before, but searched and maybe I haven't. ...

    Lebanese bread, bought hommous and tabbouli, tinned drained butter (cannelini) beans. Instant pretend kebab.

    Did this on the weekend when drunk.

    1 Wrap, smeared with butter, 2 slices of cheese, red onion, hommous dip, chicken slice, salami slices, beetroot, sundried tomatoes, topped with full cream mayo. Wrap it up and I guarantee you will make another...:thumbup:

    Make a savoury pancake batter (I had no egg so just used flour and milk), and mix it in with the fried rice. Fry until crispy on both sides and eat with Hoi-Sin sauce. Fried rice pancakes.

    Umami Heaven - Breakfast Special

    I get all the ingredients from ALDI very cheaply.

    Ingredients

    Turkish Bread (not the rolls)
    Honey Baked Ham slice
    Egg
    Butter
    Swiss cheese slice
    Tomato

    Instructions
    Bring pot of water to the boil. Boil egg for 5-6 minutes (soft-boiled).
    While boiling water, lightly toast (I use an oven grill) half of a square cut from the Turkish Bread.
    Lightly butter toast, sliced tomato on top, then honey ham slice, then swiss cheese slice.
    Barely melt the swiss cheese under the grill.
    Take the shell off the egg, cut in half over the cheese so yolk drips into everything, lightly salt and pepper, serve.

    I find this seriously delicious and have it for breakfast. And if buying from ALDI, it's pretty cheap too.

    Something I used to make a lot when I was a broke uni student and didn't know I was coeliac.

    Lazyman pasta. AKA batchelor chow.

    1 pack of those continental pasta sachets. My go to was carbonara, alfredo or chicken curry.
    1 cup of frozen carrots peas and corn
    2 sausages

    • Put the pasta in the microwave to cook. (I think it works better in a saucepan but whatever)
    • Put the sausages on a sandwich toaster or george forman or whatever you have.
    • About halfway through the pasta cooking throw in the frozen carrots peas and corn
    • cut up the sausage and mix through pasta.
    • ?????
    • profit.
