i only ever cook one thing: vegetable mush. 🍲

πŸ₯”πŸ πŸ†πŸ₯•πŸŒΆοΈπŸ„πŸ…πŸ―πŸšπŸ΅πŸ½οΈπŸ˜‹

steps:

  1. buy all your favorite seasonal veggies from your local market
  2. chop them all up however you want
  3. add them to a large frying pan (if stir fry) or pot (if curry), usually in order of cook priority (onions and root veggies first, mushrooms and tomatos last, etc)
  4. add whatever spices you feel like. if curry then add curry paste and maybe coconut milk / cream
  5. cook until done, meanwhile cook rice, beans, or lentils
  6. serve with tea and enjoy!

Love it! so close to my own cooking method.

Back in the 1960's or therabouts, we used to call that "hippy stirfry"...

@dinosaur on my way to the mercado today to get about 10 pounds of fresh veggies; thanks for the reminder to eat more crunchy things!

Re: %r1h0ddahP

two ideas to fill in an already good idea:

  1. just do the veggies on saute style: on low heat
  2. add some crunchy other stuff to add texture: seeds, nuts, semi-raw rice noodles, etc

When using rice, we call it "Reis mit Scheiß" (rice with shit, but it rhymes) in German - at least the people I hang with.

Once you grasp the basics of chopping things up and heating them, you can add new moves and make it actually seem like a different meal. for example, grating something instead of chopping.

Put a bit of peanut butter or sultanas in a curry,
or chocolate in a chili. I make a vege chilli with grated carrots + zuchini, can of tomatos, beans, then some lentils, and it comes out with a texture pretty close to if you used mince.

Veggies I got today. Should I chop them, grate them, bake them or sautΓ©e them?mercado-veggies.jpg

Re: %r1h0ddahP

@gb none of those look grateable! btw, can you get kumura in mexico? (purple sweet potato, whitish on the inside? grate them and make hashbrowns, but way better than hashbrowns. the orange sweet potatos don't crisp up good, so don't make good hashbrowns)

Re: %r1h0ddahP

This is the closest thing I've ever seen to kumura in MX: %eRyNPi9... -- as you can see, purple on the inside. Those are delish but hard to find.

@Dominic_temp in #cooking-channel
Re: %r1h0ddahP

oh yeah, the purple ones work too! we have actually replaced bread with kumura hashbrowns. Deborah can't eat bread, and for me, kumura last much longer in the cupboard than bread.

the trick is just that you gotta not move them about in the pan, because it's the crispyness which holds them together, unlike if you make hashbrowns with ordinary potatos.

When I read hashbrowns I thought of something else. Got dubious at

Re: %r1h0ddahP

thought about this last night as I chopped garlic -- never occurred to me to chop it that way, clever, really
