Three Easy & Nourishing Recipe Recommendations

No food, no life. Food is important for our lives and we feel happy when we have delicious food. However, it is really bothersome to cook every day, especially if you live by yourself or in a dorm. It is okay to have instant noodles or frozen foods sometimes, but they are not very nourishing. I recommend these three recipes which are all easy to cook, nutritious, and which can be made with the ingredients that you already have in the fridge.


① Carbonara Spaghetti

easy level ★★★, nutrition level ☆☆★

Ingredients: Bacon (or ham or sausage), spinach, egg, cheese, consomme granules, milk, spaghetti

1, Boil the pasta

2, cut the bacon (or ham or sausage) in 5mm and spinach in bite size.

3, put bacon, cheese, consomme granules, milk in the bowl and mix them

4, Heat it in the microwave for two minutes

5, put the 4 stuff, spaghetti and egg together


② Oyakodon
