Do you ever find yourself strolling around the supermarket without any inspiration for food, so you take the same boring thing as usual? I’ve had those moments a few too many… But I know it doesn’t have to be as hard to cook interesting food without too much effort! Sometimes you need to try a new kitchen, for example the Asian kitchen. Here’s a new hot & sour healthy recipe for easy Asian veggie soup.
“Good soup is one of the prime ingredients of good living”
I love to experiment with new tastes and recipes. My favorite way of food prepping is with stir frying. This way you can really mix lots of yummy flavors together and make something much more tasty than the (usually) boring cooked cauliflower or green beans. Though I can imagine that not everyone feels comfortable stir frying and stays safe with boiling their regular veggies. But then it’s about time to get out of your comfort zone and look for other yummy vegetables and exiting herbs and spices. There’s a lot of choice at the supermarkets nowadays girls!
I started experimenting with veggies that were similar to the ones I already knew. Give that a try and before you know it, your fridge will be filled with lots of different fresh ingredients 😉 Though it can take some time to prepare everything and you have to make sure to use everything within a couple of days, which isn’t always easy. When it comes to cooking I’m honestly not the type of person that likes to spend hours in the kitchen. Yes, even Foodie-ness girls prefer convenience cooking to save some of that precious spare time! I do enjoy healthy, fresh and tasty food however. That’s why I’m always trying to find ways that can fulfill my love for good food in less time. And sometimes we just need to make it a little easier for ourselves. So I’ve tried those pre-packaged stir frying vegetables before, but that’s not the most tasteful to be honest. But now there is a good solution for that!
