    Saunsbury's 10p noodles. Put kettle-water over them and whack them in the microwave for two minutes.

    I'm actually sick of them.

    Porridge. I make it with 1% milk and chopped banana. After that, it would be Weetabix and fruit, lots and lots of fruit.

    Mushrooooooooooooooooooooms. In everything, if you eat something I've cooked you're bound to find a mushroom somewhere. My Mamma made the most gorgeous mushroom and potato pasties yesterday Also, spinach and green leafy stuff like rocket and lamb's lettuce.

    Or bread, actually...
    Cook for me :puppyeyes:

    I'm having a mushroom craving. :eek:

    i acutally don't do those basics from recipies, but if you havent yeat learned to cook, all of this is sure good basic stuff.
    first it's improtant you have staples at home, and also a few herbs and spices. dried ones go a very long way. you could start with basil, herbs de provence, garlic, black pepper (all ground and dried), also have a look around the shelf what else you like. also good extra vergine olive oil. and some curry powder and probably garam massala (sp?).

    now just so you get the basic idea, an example.

    bulgur with vegetables: cook bulgur according to the directions on the package (probably a cup), fry some vegetables (1 or 2 hand full) in a seperate pan with a little olive oil. (you can take any kind of frozen vegetables, or a ready stir fry, or cut up fresh veggies, or use canned. whatever you like or have on hand). i have mixed frozen veggies a home all the time, they keep forever if you dont use them, and you can always have some on hand. mix together, top with a tbsp of olive oil and probably a little salt, pepper, basil, herb de provence.

    some tips:
    instead of bulgur you could take couscous, noodles, ebly, rice, whatever.
    try different combinations, different kinds of frozen or canned veg mixes.
    be carefull with herbs: start with little, you can always add more. a little granulated garlic is good in most combinations, but start with very little, really. things you can always use: salt, pepper, garlic, olive oil all enhances the taste of things. with everything else start with one or two in a dish, not more.
    a little cheese in any of those dishes isn't wrong.
    insted or in addition to the veggies: any meat of your choice, canned tuna, cut up sausage, marinated fried tofu.
    it you fancy sace with it, just take prepacked toamto sauce and more herbs. or take a few spoons of sour cream.
    leftovers: mix with an egg or two (depending on the amount), form little patties and fry in some oil. those can be frozen as well, and microwaved on a lazy day.
    a little toased chopped nuts maked everything good (toased sliced almonds, walnuts, hazelnut, coconut), fry with salt and olive oil, but be careful it browns without burning.

    a few of my fav. combinations:
    couscous with fresh pomegranate seeds and cubed feta. yummy!
    bulgur with spinache (frozen) and canned tuna.
    rice with fried cubed tofu and chickpeas (canned)
    freid noodle patties with corn (canned) and cheese.

    also an easy recipie for daal masala (indian red lentils):
    a cup of lentils, 1 big red onion (chopped), 2 teapoons garam masala, a little salt, chilli powder, oil, a bit canned tomato, if you like a chopped carrot and bell pepper, if you have, a little grated coconut, coriander powder, tumeric powder, garlic powder. cook everything with a little more wtater than stated on the package.

    also i'm sorry all this is offtopic, but i thought if i didn't pm, but post publicly, other people might be interested as well.
