Fridge Raider Uni Stir Fry
So not exactly what I set this blog up for but going to University is definitely an adventure and at times can be a survival challenge! This one is for Liam
This isn't so much a recipe as a cooking system. When you're on a budget you need to go with what you have available and quite often have to keep the ingredients basic. That doesn't mean it has to be boring or not nutritious however. The rigours you put your body through engaging in sports & filling your head with knowledge (yeah okay and the endless drinking and all nighters) need to be fueled just as your body requires on an expedition.
Some of the best types of recipes to look at are those that come traditionally from poorer rural backgrounds such as Far Eastern stir fries, Indo-Asiasn Curries, Mediterranean pasta dishes and European stews. If you have to use more than 2 pots or a casserole dish you're over complicating things and losing out on valuable drinking time. Save the souffles for post-grad level. Once you know the basic structure you can start experimenting with different ingredients :-)
I have a habit of finding adventure just about anywhere. Here I share some of them with you dear readers...
