I like spaghetti aglio e olio a lot and it's really easy. It's a must that you add extra virgin oil at the end for the taste. I also love to add a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
recipe - boil the spaghetti. when a few mins left, heat olive oil in another pan and fry 2 cloves sliced garlic (and chilli if you want). when the pasta is done, get rid of water and add the spaghetti to the garlic and swirl it around. when put it on your plate add extra virgin oil and swoosh around. and you're done.
anyone got a nice easy recipe to share? if it's more complicated that's ok too.
I make a MEAN breakfast burrito that is extremely easy to make and incredibly tasty.
U need breakfast sausages (porky), smoked streaky bacon (yeah I know...), whole eggs, butter, tortilla wraps (white, wholemeal taste like ****), salt, pepper (for eggs), SRIRACHA sauce and mayo (trust me it works).
Scramble the eggs. See jamie oliver's YT video of scrambled eggs if u don't know how - American style preferably for this recipe. Don't just make rubbery, crap eggs, you want them to be soft and silky. The key is PATIENCE and low-medium heat. High heat turns eggs hard and rubbery. Blergh.
Heat the tortilla(s) for 30 seconds each side.
Cook the bacon and sausages.
Place the tortilla(s) on a board, add 1 tsp of sirracha and spread it on the tortilla. Repeat the same thing for mayo. Increase amount if you want (I prefer it extra saucy but be careful cos sriracha is hot af). Add the scrambled egg. I use 1,5 large eggs for each tortilla wrap so if I wanna make 2 wraps, I will scramble 3 large eggs. Lastly, add 2 sausages per tortilla and 2 rashers of bacon. Wrap it and enjoy. U can put some extra sauce as you eat.
A recipe on north African eggs I found on youtube:
Fry diced onions, diced pepper, garlic and chopped chilli in a pan, add diced tomato, add cumin seeds, make some holes in the mixture and crack eggs into it, cover the dish and cook the eggs on a low heat. Finish with spring onions.
Well We used to make somthing called Pasta and Sauce.
You cook the pasta drain it put in the sauce serve
Gambas Pil Pil. A nice and easy Spanish/Arabic influence tapas lunch snack, great with a French stick for dipping and served with a glass or two of some Rioja or Cava:
Fresh uncooked peeled prawns
A good dollop of Olive oil (two tablespoons)
Chopped bird-eye red chilli - as many as you dare! (wash your fingers and keep away from eyes, nose and todger. You have been warned. lol)
2 cloves garlic peeled and sliced or chopped
Salt to taste and some parsley for garnish.
Heat the oil in a frying pan until just smoking, add chilli, garlic and prawns.
Fry in hot oil until the prawns are pink - keep moving the ingredients around to stop then burning.
Serve in a earthenware tapas bowl sprinkled with crushed salt and topped with parsley for garnish. Make sure all of the oil gets served.
Prep time 5 mins,
Cooking time 5 mins.
Dunking the bread in the oil is the best!
A variation is to change the prawns for chopped chorizo sausage, add some chopped tomato, heat until piping hot and mix through with cooked spaghetti.
