For lazy days where I don't really feel like putting too much effort into preparing food, but still wish to enjoy a nice warm meal, I turn to my trusty old rice cooker. One pot rice cooker meals are so, so easy and so low maintenance. It literally consists of prepping simple ingredients, throwing everything into a pot and pressing a button! Very minimal effort required.
This is a simple mixed steamed rice recipe, lightly seasoned with soy sauce, mirin and sake. Feel free to switch up the vegetables you want to add and play around with flavours. For a simple meal, I tend to serve some plain blanched vegetables on the side. I hope you can try it out during your lazy days too. Enjoy!
Summer time is the time for fresh vegetables all around. It's also a perfect time to sit back, enjoy the sun and relax with a nice, cold beverage and a little snack. How does some delicious and healthy kale chips sound? All you need is kale, some oil and salt. Super simple to make. A little bit of salt to season really brings out the flavour and aroma of the kale chips. This recipe will only consist of salt and pepper as seasoning as a basic version, but feel free to 'spice' it up with some garlic powder, paprika, dried herbs etc. You'll be finished with your bowl of kale chips before you know it!
Kale is a wonderful nutrient-dense vegetable. Low in calories and a fantastic source of vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin A, B6, C, K, folate, manganese and more. I promise you won't feel guilt from indulging and snacking on kale chips. If you can't finish the entire batch, store it in an airtight container and it will last 2-3 days. Enjoy!
