Since I'm still awake at 5am and rather bored I figured I would make a thread in the Pit about one of my favorite subjects; cooking.

So Pit, who likes to cook? Any recipies to share? Ideas?

To start things off I will give you my recipe for vegetable hotpot.

Ingredients (for 6 person serving):
-Oil
-2 crushed garlic cloves or a little bit of garlic puree
-1 onion, chopped roughly
-1 tablespoon of chilli powder (whatever strength you feel like although if you like it hot, use less powder of a higher strength, unless you like it really hot, then you could use two tablespoons of the highest strength you can get)
-450g of potatos, chopped roughly
-450g of turnips, chopped roughly
-350g of carrots, chopped roughly
-350g of leeks, chopped roughly
-225g of mushrooms
-4 tablespoons of plain flower (very important that it is not self raising)
-600ml of vegetable stock
-400g can of chopped tomatoes
-400g can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
-Thyme
-Cumin
-Pepper
-Salt (although I personally don't use it)

1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees

2. Fry the onion and the garlic in a little oil in a large casserole pot until they begin to brown (about 5 minutes) then stir in the chilli powder and cook for another minute.

3. Add the potatoes, turnip, carrots, leeks and mushrooms and cook for about 3 or 4 minutes then stir in the flower and cook for another minute.

4. Slowly stir in the stock with the tomatoes and season with the pepper, cumin and thyme. Bring it to the boil then cover and place in the oven for 30 minutes.

5. Remove from the oven and stir in the beans then put it back in the oven uncovered for about 20-25 minutes.

6. Eat it.

I love this kind of food around this time of year when summer is finishing and the days are getting colder and darker.
Its also great in the depths of winter when its too cold to go outside and you can sit indoors with a big steaming bowl of the stuff and a big ass slice of wholemeal bread.

I posted in that thread too but it got closed for some reason. Thats the only reason I didn't revive the old one.

I made up a recipe for some kickass Rice Krispie treats. Forgot it though.


BUT I made this fruit sauce that goes awesome on brownies and ****. It's got about 7 different kinds of alcohol in it.

I make some beautiful ass fajitas; I love cooking. Actually if anyone cares, I met some lady from that show Ace of Cakes last night, the one named Mary (the less famous one). Nice lady, even though I don't really watch that show.

Yeah, I love cooking, but I dont have any recipes really, cause I dont use them. This often leads to major failures (especially an improvised Brownie recipe) but sometimes it works and kicks ass.

I do the same mostly but when I come across something that works I write it down.

That one I posted up there came about because my boss was going to throw out a batch of root vegetables because a lot of them were spoiled (which he technically has to do by law, but its still a waste) so I took the unspoiled ones home and got experimenting and came up with that pretty quickly.

I hope this thread lasts. I'm 21 and live on my own. I have no idea how to cook but I’m going to start learning as of tomorrow. This thread will come in handy.

EDIT: Should mention why I'm learning to cook

1. I'm sick of eating take away food

2. I'm trying to land a girlfreind and ugly f*ckers like me need all the help they can get

Something cheap and tasty.

XD

Get a bowl... kinda wide and flat.

Crack a couple eggs into it.

Add in Salt and Black Pepper.

Stir and stir and stir till it's pretty well mixed up.


Put stove on high. Get frying pan. Pour in some oil(corn/vege doesnt matter).


Get BREAD!

Dip and coat the bread with the egg.

fry and flip until both sides are cooked(not slimey.) I usually do mines well-cooked and it doesn't take that long at all.


Make sure you have the fan on.

about the recepie.



Yeah man that sounds really awesome! I think this is a great idea for a thread and i'll try to get round to making that tomorrow or whatever. I think it's really good that you've done this cus we can all share ideas for food we make and stuff and homemade food is always better than processed crap lets face it.

I wish i had soem right now actually haha, it's been abit of a late one , went to see an open mic night and got through a fair few pints of bitter whilst listening to some awesome musicians and one did covers of a couple of Neil Young songs (he did them justice too!).

Needless to say im feelin abit worse for wear haha. I need sleep!

been in the cooking biz for 10 years.

all sorts of kitchens. but i'm going back to school for engineering.. still love to cook at home tho

got a wicked one for vegetarian corn chowder.

1/2 sliced onion
chopped carrots
chopped celery
cubed potato (peeled)
1 cup of frozen corn
chicken stock
salt, pepper, chili flakes
1/4 cup of flour with water (this is a thickener, if you're a celiac.. you can use cornstarch)
lotsa milk
2 tbsp of butter

start out with your butter in a pot and melt it over low heat. put your onions in and let that caramelize with your salt, pepper, and chili flakes. keep your heat LOW.

while its caramelizing, have another pot going with boiling water. boil your potatoes halfway and then toss in your carrots and celery to blanche for a bit.. afterwards strain the water and put into your other pot thats butter, spice and onions.

pour milk into the pot until it covers the veggies then cover and continue cooking on low heat (all stoves are different, but i usually have mine on 3 or 3.5). once its all hot and simmering slowly and the veggies are cooked through, add your thickener (water/flour) by slowly pouring it in while stirring. it should then turn a creamy consistency. Add your corn and let it simmer for another 5 or so minutes.

voila. perfect winter chowder that goes great with sandwiches.

if you want to add meat, i find pork or roasted chicken goes best. make sure its really tender and then throw the already cooked meat in last. after you put the corn in. over boiling it tends to turn it really tough, or if its chicken.. reduce it to a big mess of strings.

Well the other night i came home to find no one was home, so i had to make something off the top of my head, so i got some fuseli, boiled that, cut up a bit of chicken breast, fried it and put a bit of tomato puree in the pan as it was cooking, mixed it all together, put in some herbs and mayo, and it was done, it was very nice.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

get a beef chuck roast, london broil, or some similar cut. make a bed of cubed potatoes, carrots, and onions either in the bottom of a crockpot or oven pan. coat the veggies with a small amount of olive oil and salt and pepper. salt and pepper the beef and lay ontop of the veggies. pour a can of beef broth and a can of golden mushroom soup over every. if youre making it in the oven, cover with foil and put in for 2-3 hours at 300 degrees. easy and cheap pot roast.


i use this recipe for general tao's chicken and it always comes out really good: http://blogchef.net/general-tsos-chicken-recipe/. you'll probably need to triple the amount of sauce called for as they kinda skimp. i also like to add broccoli and diced onion.

hmm. i usually eyeball my pizzas, i'll put something down for it later. for now, here's some BLT:

Ingredients
4 strips of bacon
2 leaves of Romaine lettuce
4 slices of tomato
2 slices of bread
Mayonaise

Procedure
1. Cook the bacon on a frying pan over a hot flame until crisp. Put the slices of bread in toaster and lightly toast the bread until light brown.

2. Cut the slices of bread in half down the middle. (Lay the flat part of the bread facing you and the curved top part away from you and cut from the top curve to the flat bottom). Put some mayo on each piece of bread. Set aside two pieces of bread.

3. Cut 4 slices of tomato and peel off 2 leaves of romaine lettuce.

4. Lay out two pieces of bread and put 2 pieces of tomato on each. Take 2 pieces of bacon and lay them on top of the tomato for each piece of bread. Next, put the lettuce on top of each piece. Cover with the other two pieces of bread.

5. Lightly press down on the BLT and enjoy!


Here's a super quick and easy meat-free spaghetti recipe:

4 Cheese Spaghetti
Takes about 40 minutes and serves about 5 people.


Ingredients
1 lb of spaghetti noodle
1/2 lb of mozzarella cheese
1/2 lb of Gruyere cheese
1/2 lb of fontina cheese
1/4 lb of gorgonzolla cheese

Procedure
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Boil a pot of salted water and cook the spaghetti until al dente. Drain the water and set aside. Grate and mix the mozzarella, gruyere and fontina cheeses together.

2. Lightly butter the bottom of a baking dish and put 1/3 of the spaghettie evenly in the dish. Spread 1/3 of the mozzarella gruyere and fontina cheese mixture ontop. Lay out another 1/3 layer of spaghetti and another 1/3 layer of cheese. Finally, lay out the last layer of spaghetti and cheese. Crumble the gorgonzolla cheese all over the top.

(Note: You can drizzle some olive oil and sprinkle some salt/pepper over each layer of spaghetti for moisture and taste).

3. Bake for 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and slightly light brown. Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top and serve hot!

Chocolate Souffle

I made it yesterday, it was great.

Ingredients:
Softened butter, for greasing dishes ( I just used canola oil spray)
1/2 tbs caster sugar, plus extra to coat dishes
90g good-quality dark chocolate
75ml thickened cream
2 eggs, separated
20ml (1 tbs) brandy (optional)
1 eggwhite
Icing sugar, to dust

Method
Preheat oven to 220°C. Grease two 300ml souffle dishes with butter, then sprinkle with extra sugar to coat. Refrigerate for 15 minutes to chill.
Place the chocolate and cream in a pan over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from the heat. Stir in the egg yolks and brandy, then cover and set aside for up to 2 hours.
Whisk the 3 eggwhites until stiff peaks form, then add caster sugar and whisk until glossy. If the chocolate has gone cold, reheat slightly then fold in 1 tablespoon of the eggwhite into mixture, then fold in the rest.
Fill the dishes to just below the rim, bake for 8-10 minutes until risen. Dust with icing sugar and serve immediately.

I'm not a good cook but I have been making a lot of milkshakes recently. I've been experimenting with different flavors of ice cream and I discovered a really awesome milkshake.
Get a blender and put "dulce de leche" and cookies and cream flavored ice cream in. About the same amount of each. Add hershey's chocolate syrup, hershey's caramel syrup and milk. Blend.

It's really good, if you ever have the chance, try it.
