Dairy-free Turmeric Tea

One of my go-to hot drinks is Turmeric Tea. As a runner my knees are always stress when I run and I need to take care of my knee joints.

Aside from proper stretching and cross trains my physiotherapist friend told me to take Curcumin which is a chemical compound found in Turmeric. Although Turmeric is a famous spice in asian cuisines I mostly use it into making my hot drink.

Veggie Sushi Roll

Im always a rice person, I eat rice everyday for breakfast and lunch and I like cooking Japanese rice because its soft and sticky. Also the Japanese rice I’m using is cholesterol free and naturally low in fat. Japanese rice have short grain and generally use for making Sushi which I have never tried before. This recipe is so easy and doable so included it in bonus recipes under 30.

After quite sometime I’ve decided to give Vegetable sushi a try and make my own meal with only 4 main ingredients. Although you can always modify the ingredients according to your choice.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Japanese Rice cook and cool
  • 1 Carrot (sliced vertically)
  • 1 Cucumber (sliced vertically removing seeds)
  • Nori Sheets
  • 3 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Mirin or white wine (optional)
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 avocado ( slice vertically) (optional)
  • 1 red bell pepper (slice and removing seeds)
  • roasted sesame (optional for garnishing)

  3. Slice the veggies that you will use and remove the seeds. Blanch carrots before adding in the sushi roll.
  4. In a separate bowl mix rice and add the liquid mixture slowly. Try not to over mix your rice.
  5. Now in your working table place the bamboo rolling mat and put a cling wrap then place the Nori sheet with the rough side facing up.
  6. Scoop rice and spread in the Nori sheet evenly leaving about 1/2 inch -top of Nori sheet uncovered with rice.
  7. Now put the cut veggies on the other end but don’t over fill it.

Prep Time 10 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 500 g Wholemeal pasta you can only use 250g first
  • 500g tomato sauce or your choice of sauce
  • 1 whole onion mince
  • 1 clove of garlic mince
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • pinch of pepper chili flakes, salt
  • 1 can button mushroom small
  • dried parsley optional
  • Olive oil

Instructions
 

  • Peel onion and garlic, chopped and set aside
  • Slice button mushroom into halfs (if your button mushroom is already small then no need to slice)
  • Boil your pasta in a pan, only put your pasta once the water started to boil and a little salt. Check packaging on how long you need to cook pasta usually its 10-12 minutes.
  • In a separate pan, heat olive oil and put garlic and onion, into low fire.
  • Add mushroom and stir together with the onion and garlic until its golden brown
  • Add your Tomato sauce and let it boil, I like adding a little water and not too concentrated. Let it boil for about 10-15 minutes in low heat.
  • Add sugar, salt, pepper and chili flakes.
  • Once you achieve the desired taste let it boil again for another 5 minutes
  • By this time your pasta is also already cooked. Drain the water and put in a separate container.

I like separating my pasta with the sauce and just putting the write amount of sauce in the pasta. Make sure to put in the fridge all left overs for the next time you feel hungry.

  1. I’d definitely try the desserts on this list. I remember how overwhelming it was to come up with single meals once I was on my own so I hope this helps a lot of people who are on their own for the first time.

  2. 5 stars
    These are great! I love cooking up stir-fry dishes at the end of the week when there is hardly anything left in my fridge. I just throw everything together. I love that you noted to have rice on hand too because that’s a must for me! I also love how fresh your salsa looks. I need to bring that to the next family gathering! Thank you for sharing these!
