So as you’ve probably guessed by the title of this post… I currently have no kitchen. I’ve had to move back in with my mum since I’ve come back from university, and she’s just moved house so there’s a lot of building work currently going on; consequently we don’t have an oven, sink or any kitchen counters to work with, and consequently I have been eating a lot of crappy food. I decided that as well as needing an excuse to blog, I also needed a decent meal rather than the constant stream of pizza and microwave mug cakes, so after racking my brain thinking, I remembered the awesome District Taco quesadillas that my best friend introduced me to whilst I was in America (why, why, why isn’t Mexican food a big thing in the UK?!) and thought they would probably be edible with just a microwave to play with. They were. Hot damn they were good, I’ve missed real food.
So that’s my experience of post-graduate life thus far, I have learnt to feed myself with no kitchen. I’ll keep you all updated on any successes I have aside from this masterpiece of culinary convenience.
If anyone has any microwave recipes they’d like to recommend to me I’d love to hear them in the comments! Our microwave broke at uni so I don’t have much experience with them and I’m fearing for my health… What are vegetables?!
200g of pre-cooked (canned) kidney beans
Three heaped tablespoons of sweetcorn
Half a chopped red pepper
A few sliced cherry tomatoes
As many spices as you can find (I just used a sprinkle of paprika as I couldn’t find anything else)
Lots and lots of grated cheese/vegan cheese
- Lay one tortilla on a plate, layer the fillings on top then smother with vegan cheese and lay the other tortilla on top of that, sort of like a tortilla sandwich.
- Put in the microwave on full blast for about four minutes, or until the cheese has melted and everything is piping hot. Serve cut into quarters.
