As most of you may know, MmeBunneh is atrocious at cooking. I’m devoting this page to helping her master the art of putting food on the table.
No more burning things in a microwave.
No more setting burritos on fire.
No more (literally) blowing up your kitchen.
If anyone has some vegetarian recipes for bunny (or anyone else, it’s open to everyone), please feel free to share them here. Why on earth someone would want to be vegetarian is beyond me, but to each his own I suppose.
I’m trying to keep these as simple as possible so you don’t burn your neighborhood down.
-Squash (however much you plan to eat. Usually 2 large ones is fine for a single person)
-Onion (1/2 of a large onion will usually do the trick)
Put about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in your pan on medium heat. Slice your squash (like you would slice a tomato) and dice your onions. Throw all of that into your pan, and stir it around every minute or two.
This should take about 10 minutes. When done, the squash should be very soft and the onions will be slightly brown. Salt and pepper to taste.
This recipe should feed you for multiple days with leftovers, or feed a group all at once. Feel free to remove vegetables that you might not like from the recipe.
-1 package of spaghetti noodles
-1 large jar of spaghetti sauce (Ragu, Prego, etc)
-2 green bell peppers
-1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
-1 large tomato
First, you’re going to want to cook your sauce. Get a large pot, and put your jar of sauce in there. Now dice your onion, peppers, mushrooms, and tomato. You’re gonna want them to be somewhat small. Throw all the vegetables in the pot with your sauce. Put the pot on SIMMER (if your stove doesn’t have a place for simmer, it’s usually when the burner is on 10% or so).
You should come back every once in a while to stir your sauce, just to make sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom or burn.
After you’ve let your sauce simmer for a couple of hours (it has to be a while in order to cook your vegetables), put some water in a different pot. Do not fill the pot up, put just enough to submerge your package of noodles. Now turn your burner on high (you should have 1 pot on simmer and 1 pot on high at this point) and wait until the water boils. This should take 5-10 minutes. Do not let it overflow.
When the water comes to a boil, throw your package of noodles in the water and continue to stir them every few minutes until they are done. This should take 8-12 minutes.
Now turn off your burners. Strain your spaghetti to get the water out. Once that is finished, you’re now ready to eat.
-Potatoes. The number you need depends on the size, but you want enough so that when you slice it, you can cover a whole oven pan.
-Season salt (Lowry’s, Old Bay, etc)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Take your potatoes and slice them up however you’d like. They should be no larger than the width of your thumb. Cover an oven pan with your sliced potatoes (though I recommend spraying the pan with no-stick PAM or something), being careful not to stack them on top of each other.
Now get your olive oil, and cover your potatoes. You don’t need much, just 3-4 tablespoons will do fine. When that’s done, take your season salt and cover them to your taste.
When your oven is preheated, put your pan in there for 30 minutes. Take them out, and use a spatula to get the fries off the pan. They may or may not stick to the pan. Serve with ketchup or whatever you like to put your fries in.
-2 cups all-purpose flour
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-1/2 cup butter
-3/4 cup brown sugar
-2 eggs (go ahead and crack these into a small bowl by themselves)
-2 cups bananas (make sure they’re over-ripe. The peel should be turning dark brown, and be somewhat soft to the touch)
-A pinch of salt
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Take a small loaf pan and spray it. If you don’t have any, just lightly coat the inside with olive/vegetable oil.
Combine your baking soda and flour in a bowl, and add a pinch of salt. Stir it together.
In another bowl, combine your butter and brown sugar. Stir that up a bit, then add in your bananas, but make sure they’re mashed up nicely before you do. Beat your eggs, then throw them in your second bowl with the brown sugar and bananas.
Now you want to mix both of your bowls together. Stir that up as much as you can until it is fairly consistent. Put the mixture into your bread pan.
Put the loaf pan in the oven and bake for 1 hour. Let the loaf sit for about 15 minutes, and you’ll be ready to eat.
-2 pieces of bread
Put your pan on the stove on medium heat. Spray your pan with no-stick spray if you have any. When your pan gets hot, put your two pieces of bread in the pan. Let them sit for about 10 seconds. Check the bottom to see if they are toasted, and if they are remove them from the pan. Do not toast the other side yet. These are going to be the inside of your sandwich. Place your cheese between the two pieces of bread, on the parts that you toasted (I like to use a chunk of Sharp Cheddar and just cut a few small pieces to put on the sandwich, but you may use whatever you like. Kraft Singles are perfectly fine). Butter the top of your sandwich (it makes the bread softer when you do it this way. Makes for a cheesier sandwich) and throw it back on the pan. Flip every 15 seconds or so until you have it browned like you want it.
