Stuck on something to cook for the Mrs?
Hungry and don't know where to start?

Welcome to The (Un)Official UG Recipe Thread!!!!
Here, we will have a selection of tasty (and perhaps not so tasty) ideas for you.
Put your aprons on and get ready to cook up a storm.

RULES:
I'm not responsible for any dud recipes.
Cook them at your own risk.
Please don't post rubbish
Something edible and easy to cook is preferable.

Also let us know if there are any ingredients that might give someone allergic reactions.

Let us begin!
First up I'll post AstheticsOfHate's hot and sour soup from the other thread (just to get things goin.

This is a really nice recipe for hot and sour soup! It looks long and hard, but it's actually very easy

Step 1:
You will need

* 2 cm ginger, chopped
* 4 cloves of garlic, chopped
* Half an onion, sliced
* 2 Thai chillies (or any other type), sliced
* 2 lemon grass stalks, chopped
* 1 tsp turmeric
* 1 tbsp brown sugar
* 2 tbsp vegetable oil
* 60 ml fish sauce
* 1 ltr chicken stock
* 60 ml rice wine vinegar
* 4 kaffir lime leaves
* a few basil leaves
* 1 tbsp of lime juice
* 1 chicken breast, cut into cubes
* 6 large shrimps peeled
* 4 tbsp of shredded cabbage
* a few coriander sprigs for garnish
* 2 saucepans
* 1 sieve
* 1 wooden spoon
* 1 ladle

Step 2:
Cook the vegetables
Warm the pan on a medium heat and add the oil. Let the oil heat up and add the onions. Slowly cook them for about 1 or 2 minutes and add the garlic and ginger. Stir and gently cook for a few minutes.
Step 3:
Add the liquid ingredients and spices
Add the chicken stock, lemongrass, lime leaves, basil, chillies, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, fish sauce and finally the turmeric. Stir, bring to a simmer and cook for 15- 20 minutes.
Step 4:
Strain the soup
After about 15-20 minutes, strain the soup into the other pan with the aid of the sieve. Press out the remaining liquids with a spoon, give the sieve a shake and then discard its contents. Bring the soup to a slow simmer.
Step 5:
Cook the chicken and shrimps
When the soup has reached a simmer, add the chicken and cook for about 3-5 minutes. Next, add the shrimps, cook for a few minutes more and remove from the heat.
Step 6:Serve
Just before serving, add the lime juice to the soup and stir. In a serving bowl put the shredded cabbage and ladle the soup over the top. Garnish it with a few sprigs of coriander and serve! This recipe can be varied greatly. For example, the shrimps can be replaced with beef or pork. Experiment and enjoy.


Once again...this one's from AstheticsOfHate

OK.
One of my own.


Tuna Stuffed Capsicums

Depending on how many capsicums you have and how big they are, determines how much tuna to use. Just go with it. If you make too much you can use the tuna as spread on crackers or just put it in the fridge with some cling wrap

You will need:
  • Tuna
  • Whole Capsicums/Peppers
  • Mayo
  • Capers
  • Hard boiled egg
  • Chives
  • Olive Oil


Steps:
  • Cut the capsicums in half and de-seed them
  • Pre-heat oven to 180ºC and drizzle oil over an oven tray.
  • Place Capsicum Halves on tray, open side up. Cook for 15 mins or until they start to kinda wrinkle up and get soft. Once it's done, take them and and let them cool for a little bit.
  • Break apart the canned tuna and mix in enough mayo to make it kinda stick together, but not too much. Get your hard boiled egg and cut it into bits and mix it all together. Cut up the chives and the Capers and put them into a bowl with the tuna and mayo
  • Once the capsicums have cooled, scoop the tuna filling into the capsicums. Get a few more chopped chives and sprinkle over the top to make it look pretty
  • Enjoy


REMEMBER LEFTOVER TUNA CAN STILL BE USED ON CRACKERS OR RE-USED!!

Ziti with Garlic and Tomato No-Cook Sauce

Serves: 4
Start to finish time: Under 20 minutes

Ingredients:
Salt for cooking the pasta
8 ounces ziti or other short pasta
2 cloves fresh garlic
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
4 medium-size plum tomatoes (for about 1-1/3 cups chopped)
2 tablespoons chopped ripe olives (see Note below)
1/4 cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and black pepper to taste

Directions:

1. Bring 2 1/2 quarts lightly salted water to a boil in a covered 4½ quart or larger pot. When the water reaches a rapid boil, add the pasta and cook, uncovered, until just tender, following the package directions.

2. Meanwhile, peel and finely chop the garlic and place it in a 4-quart or larger bowl. Add the oil and Italian seasoning. Core and chop the tomatoes into bite-size pieces and add them to the bowl. Stir to coat with the oil. Drain the olives and add them to the bowl.

3. Drain the pasta well and add it to the bowl. Scatter the Parmesan cheese on top, and toss to melt the cheese. Season with salt and black pepper and serve at once.

Note: Buy the ripe olives already chopped if you can find them. Otherwise buy sliced olives and chop them finely. Refrigerate the leftover chopped olives in an airtight container, and sprinkle them over a salad later in the week.

Yeah i have alot stored in my brain, i think i might stick to the easier things though, as i find most UG'ers are young and probably wouldn't fair to well with some of the more complex dishes ! BTW Tuna stuffed capsicums sounds really good! I might give that a go this week sometime

Budget Chicken Parmigana!

Preparation/cooking time 10-15minutes.

Ingredients (remember this is a cheap and easy recipe!):
Doritos sauce (Any salsa sauce is fine)
Breaded chicken
Cheese
Bacon

Items:
Fry pan
Low fat oil

Preperation:

1: Pre-heat a fry pan, with a thin layer of oil in the pan to prevent the chicken burning.

2: Cook the breaded chicken, as well as the bacon (if desired) on both sides until golden brown (Always a good idea to check the middle for pinkness when it comes to chicken).

3: Place the bacon on top of the chicken, spread desired amount of salsa over the top of the bacon and chicken, cover in cheese.

4: If you have a grill, use the grill to melt the cheese until golden brown, otherwise microwave is fine. Remember this only takes about 1 minute, so be careful not to burn.

6: Done!

I like to serve this with a side of mashed potatoes, or even potato gems and vegetables.

You can also use different ingredients with any recipes, so if you feel like adding something extra/taking something out, don't be afraid to experiment.

Cook: 10 minutes

Ingredients:
Sirloin beef
Onions/Shallots
Scallion (green onions)
Jalapeno peppers
Rice flour or starch
Garlic
Star anise

3. Season liberally with white pepper, cumin (lots of cumin), salt, and cayenne pepper.
4. Marinade the beef for .5-1 hour with a bit of soy sauce and rice flour/starch, and mix all the seasoning into the beef thoroughly.
5. Slice the onions/shallots and jalapenos into thin slices.
6. Cut up scallions into fairly long segments.
7. In a hot non stick pan or wok, pour a modest amount of peanut or canola oil. When the oil is hot, drop in slices of garlic and a few star anise.
8. Stir fry the marinaded beef on medium high, and add the vegetables when the beef is just about thoroughly cooked.
9. Stir fry everything for a couple more minutes until the liquid from the whole thing starts to thicken and adjust seasoning and you're done.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Thought id help out..

Chicken Parcels.

Ingredients (4 parcels)

Filo Pastry - x 16 Sheets ( Just buy a packet)
Chicken Breast - x4
Square Ham - x 2
Sliced Cheese - x2
Butter
Mushroom if you want

1. Defrost chicken breast
2. Preheat oven for 10 (180)
3. Brush butter onto the pastry, you will need 4 sheets for each parcel, so butter one, add one, butter etc.
4. Place chicken in the middle.
5. Slice ham and cheese in half, place half of each on top of the chicken, plus mushroom.
6 Wrap the parcel..
7. Chuck in the oven for 12-15 minutes, some cheese will run out, and you'll notice when its nice and brown that its ready... Remember to let it cool, the cheese and chicken will be pretty hot.

Just remember don't add more than half a slice of cheese, it will run onto the pan and be a bitch to clean. Its a really good meal if you want to have something tasty in a flash.

Hope someone enjoys it.

Last one for the night.

Grilled Pizza

1 cup warm water
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 pinch white sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 1/3 cups all−purpose flour
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1/2 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup sliced black olives
1/4 cup roasted red peppers
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
4 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Dissolve yeast in warm water, and add sugar. Proof for ten minutes, or
until frothy. Add salt, olive oil, and flour; mix until dough pulls away
from the sides of the bowl. Turn onto a lightly floured, flat surface.
Knead until smooth, about 6 to 8 minutes. Place dough in a well oiled bowl,
and cover with a damp cloth. Set aside to rise until doubled. Punch down,
and knead in garlic and basil. Set aside to rise until doubled.
Preheat grill for high heat. Heat 1/2 cup olive oil with 1 teaspoon minced garlic
for 30 seconds in the microwave. Set aside. Punch dough down and divide. On
baking sheets, form into 2 oblong shapes approximately 3/8 to 1/2 inch
thick. Brush grate with garlic flavored olive oil. Carefully place dough on
hot grill. The dough will begin to puff almost immediately. When the bottom
crust has lightly browned, turn the dough over using two spatulas. Working
quickly, brush oil over crust, and then brush with 2 tablespoons tomato
sauce. Arrange 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes, 1/8 cup sliced black olives, 1/8
cup roasted red peppers over crust. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheese and 2
tablespoons basil. Close the lid, and cook until the cheese melts. Remove
from grill, and set aside to cool for a few minutes while you prepare the
second pizza.

These things tend to get closed as there is apparently another one lurking in the depths :-/


However:

Awesome cheese sauce:

Melt a bit of butter in a pan
Add some cornflour so its like a paste (usually about 3 teaspoons does the trick)
Add some milk
Salt n peppa n mixed herbs (bit of chilli powder if you wish)
Lots of cheese
Add more cornflour/milk for thickness.

Sorry about not posting exact amounts, but I rarely bother with them and it all depends on how much you want, how strong and how thick.

Will post moar later probably.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza (made this one up myself, feeds about six people.)

Ingredients:
1/4 cup olive oil.
2 1/2 cups flour
1 packet baking yeast
garlic powder ~1 tablespoon (more or less to taste)
Italian spices (rosemary, thyme, oregano, sage, marjoram; I have these mixed in one container) ~ 1 teaspoon
1 tablespoon honey
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
~ 1 cup Pizza sauce
~ 1 cup Franks buffalo
1/4 cup butter.
~ 1 lb. Mozzarella cheese
Cornmeal
Optional: 9 String Cheese sticks (for stuffed crust), 1/4 red onion, chopped.

1. Mix dry ingredients and honey together in a bowl. Add one cup of warm (110-120) degree water. Set aside to let the dough rise.
2. Grill or fry the Chicken Breasts.
3. Cut the chicken into 1in cubed chuncks
4 Mix approximately 1 cup of pizza sauce and Franks hot sauce together in medium saucepan. Use a higher proportion of hot sauce if you want it spicier.
5. Add chicken and butter, allow the sauce to simmer while you make your crust.
6. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F
7. Cover Pizza stone or pan with cornmeal (helps keep the dough from sticking)
8. Roll dough out onto stone so that the dough is hanging off the edge. Double up the dough around the edges to form the crust. At this point if you want to stuff the crust simply roll the whole string cheese sticks into the crust, making sure there aren't any holes on the outside for it to leak through.
9. Paint dough with a thin layer of olive oil to help keep the dough from absorbing the sauce and becoming soggy.
10. Spread sauce and chicken evenly over the dough.
11. Top sauce/chicken with Mozzarella. Use as much or little as you like.
12 (Optional). Top cheese with chopped red onion.
13. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until cheese begins to brown.

I hope that made sense. This can take a while (about an hour) but it's well worth it. Enjoy.

Here's a good easy one: French Dip Sandwiches.

You will need:
1-1 1/2 pounds of sliced roast beef.
3/4 pound of your favorite cheese, sliced. I prefer pepper jack.
6 hoagie buns
1/2 cup butter
Garlic powder
1 packet aus jus gravy mix

1. Make the aus jus in a medium saucepan. Normally you just empty the packet of powder and add 3 cups of cold water.
2. While waiting for the gravy to boil, melt the butter in a microwave.
3. Add garlic powder to butter, just season for taste.
4. Paint the inside of the hoagies with the butter garlic mix.
5. Broil or toast the buns in the oven or toaster oven until the butter side is a golden brown color.
6. Once the gravy starts to boil add the sliced roast to the pan.
7. Put the cheese and beef onto a roll and eat up! Use a bowl of gravy for dipping sauce for extra credit.

This is actually a good idea. I don't have any full recipes, but I love to cook.

I usually just mix crazy spices into what I'm cooking though, so nothing crazy.

But Perogies cooked with onions with chilli peppers is amazing.

Cooking is great and it can be so much easier than most people make it. Some of the best things I've ever cooked were when I was wingin' it rather than following a recipe.

I've tried to set up a thread like this countless times and failed. Hopefully this one will endure.

My contribution from my last attempt:

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, or even better, use fresh chillies cut up small with or without seeds depending on how hot you want it)
-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

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.

There wouldn't be much conversion to do. The weight of the vegetables is basically the weight of an largeish sized specimin or two and the cans are just standard sized ones.

Ok sticking with my theme of cheap/easy meals, as i know alot of UG'ers are students and the like!

Fried Rice

Ok now there is next to no work in making this dish, and i know that im MORE than happy to eat a giant bowl of friend rice on its own anyday, it also keeps for a long time.

You will need:
1: Your choice of rice, i prefer jasmine.
2: Assorted vegetables, Peas, Corn, Mushroom, Spring onion is what i usually go with.
3: Bacon
4: Soy sauce

Cooking

1: Ok firstly there is a few different ways to cook the rice, depending on wether you have a rice cooker or not. I do have said cooker, therefore i basicaly put 4 cups of rice in and walk away. To cook the rice on the stove however, place 4 cups of rice in a pot, fill with water, measuring with your index finger until it is as deep as the first line on your finger (Technical terms imo)

2: While the rice is cooking, cut up all your vegetables and bacon, making sure that they are nice a small, and place them in a wok or frying pan with a small amount of oil. The amount of vegetables varies on personal preference, i just buy a small can of corn, peas and chop up 2 medium sized mushrooms.

(Optional) I like spice on just about everything i eat, so at this point i usually load my vegetables up with some chili powder, cajun pepper, and some other mixed herbs, this way you get a nice bite when you munch into the vegetables

3: Keep the vegetables on a low heat setting to prevent any burning, and when the rice is cooked, pour it into the vegetable pot.

4: Mix the rice and vegetables together, and add soy sauce in increments, tasting along the way.

DONE!

This takes roughly 20 minutes including rice cooking time, and is very tasty
I generally like to make a whole bunch and store it in the fridge, or freezer, that way a few days later or whatever i can have chicken wings and friend rice or something along those lines ^_^

you missed the most important step:
Grill It
it's 10x better that way

and to contribute something:

Pizza Sandwiches:

Ingredients:
- Sandwich bread
- Tomato Paste
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Butter
- Pepperonis
- other pizza toppings of your choosing

Directions:
- Preheat a pan on the stove to medium to medium high heat depending on how much you put in your sandwich. A hot sandwich maker or grill can also be used.
- Spread tomato paste on the inside of each slice of bread
- Add cheese and other desired toppings to your sandwich
- After putting your sandwich together butter the outsides of the bread
- place the sandwich in the pan and cook on each side until the bread has turned a golden brown and the cheese has melted
- Eat and enjoy

Ok this tastes GREAT and I mad it in 5 minutes.

the only downside: If you want to fry it until the cheese melts, you'll need quite a bit of butter so it's probably quite fatty...

BUT WHO CARES??
