With two jobs and all the other stuff going on in my life I’m happy with cooking at least one meal a day. Most of the time it’s something quick that doesn’t take more than 10 minutes to prep or cook. Here are a couple quick dishes I whipped up this past week…
Open-Faced Egg Salad Sandwich (using seasoned eggs)
If you’re a ramen head like me you’ve seen these seasoned eggs in your favorite ramen joint. They’re boiled, shelled and marinated.
Since I was using Japanese style seasoned eggs I had to accompany them with Japanese mayo, bread and seasoning…
Ginger Scallion Noodles
This is straight off David Chang’s book “Momofuku.”
To make the sauce mix together 2 1/2 cups of thinly sliced scallions, 1/2 cup of finely minced fresh ginger, 1/4 cup of neutral oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons of light soy sauce, 3/4 teaspoon of sherry vinegar to cut the fat and 3/4 teaspoon of kosher salt.
Stir in 6 tablespoons of the sauce into a bowl of hot noodles.
“If you have ginger scallion sauce in the frig, you will never go hungry” – David Chang
I added pickled cucumbers but you can also add hoisin sauce, toasted seaweed, etc.
Roast Chicken and Potatoes
Seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, rosemary and cayenne pepper
Placed in a 450 degree pre-heated oven for 50 minutes
Everyone should try to at least cook one meal a day
