Here are 5 Basic Recipes we feel that everyone should keep in their arsenal to relieve that dinnertime stress! Take the basics and build from there. Simple as that and completely satisfying!
Making rice on the stovetop can be daunting if you’re a first timer. It may come out overly sticky, or not quite cooked, but it’s simple to get your rice to come out perfectly every time. Since rice is so versatile, it’s great to master this skill as the basis of many of your meals.
We love chicken stir-fry for the ease as well as the taste. Portion control is simple and it’s a one-pan dish that you can make with items you probably already have on hand. When you are just starting out, you can buy packets of seasoning or pre-made sauces to make this dish even simpler.
Everyone loves Mexican food so we feel that mastering the art of tacos is one of the most important things you can do as a beginner chef. Once you learn how to make perfect taco meat, you can cross that over into nachos, burritos, enchiladas, and countless other meals!
Scrambled eggs can be for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. We love making a breakfast pizza with scrambled eggs being the basic protein. You can make these on the stove top, in a cup in the microwave, or in a plastic baggie in water over a fire.
Soup is definitely a staple to master. It pairs perfectly with both sandwiches and salads and makes any meal complete. In this step by step guide, you can learn how to easily make soup from almost any vegetable.
