If you live alone and are tired of finding recipes and meals which are aimed at families, simply continue reading to discover a variety of healthy, mouthwatering dishes for singles:
Fuss free, easy meals for singles:
1. Mini pizzas
If you want to ensure that you won’t gorge yourself on a full sized pizza, simply purchase mini pizza bases. Better yet you can freeze a packet of six mini pizzas and defrost them as you need. Mini pizzas are a breeze to make; simply cover your base in pizza sauce, add your favorite ingredients and then sprinkle cheese on top of your pizza. Don’t be afraid to experiment with new toppings such as camembert cheese, chili and black olives.
2. Baked potatoes
If you’re in the mood for a hearty, fulfilling meal you may want to experiment with a baked potato recipe. As an example, if you’re a meat lover you may want to chop up pieces of grilled turkey, which you can then add to the filling of your baked potato. If you’re vegetarian, why not experiment with fried tofu? One of the benefits of cooking for one is that you only have to please yourself!
3. Tasty quesadillas
If you’re a fan of Mexican food, you may want to try preparing your own home made cheese quesadillas. If you’re short on time and own a microwave oven, you can create a last minute meal by placing a large flour tortilla on a plate and sprinkling your tortilla with grated cheese. Then, place a second tortilla on top of your cheese sprinkled tortilla and microwave your tortilla for 60 seconds. For a balanced meal, try pairing your scrumptious cheese tortilla with a garden salad.
4. Mini ham and vegetable frittata muffins
Simply track down a basic frittata recipe, ensuring to add a variety of chopped up vegetables and ham to your frittata mixture. Then instead of cooking your frittata in a plan or dish, simply pour your frittata mixture into a muffin tray to create several vegetable frittata muffins. Then freeze your leftover frittata muffins and defrost one muffin each morning to take to lunch. If you like a little spice in your life feel free to add herbs such as basil and cilantro to your frittata mixtures!
5. Macaroni Cheese in a mug
You don’t have to be a child, to enjoy eating macaroni cheese. To create macaroni cheese for one, fill a microwave safe mug with 175ml of water, with half a cup of macaroni. Then place your mug in the microwave for 3.5 minutes. Next, pour out the boiling water, making sure not to burn yourself and stir in 4 tablespoons of milk, a quarter of a teaspoon of corn starch and four tablespoons of shredded cheese. Then pop your mug back into your microwave for 60 seconds. Voila, macaroni cheese for one, without the need for pots and pans.
So if you live alone, there’s no reason to stock up on a shopping cart full of microwave meals as cooking for one can be as you want it to be. If you need inspiration, simply pick your favorite meal listed above and start cooking.
