comfort food question 

What do you make when you’re exhausted at the end of the day, have just enough energy to cook something simple, and want to treat yourself?

for me, I am a sucker for a massive plate of aglio e olio with plenty of crushed chillies, far too much sliced garlic, and a surprisingly restrained helping of grated hard cheese.

@katherine when I want to remind myself that I like food: eggs, bacon, broccoli and mushrooms. All fried. (you can do whatever you want with the eggs in the pan).

Sometimes with bread, mayo and my favorite Swedish mustard.

It's a umami bomb that's just revives my senses, and it's fairly easy to make.

@katherine if I don't have energy for that I'll probably make instant noodles with frozen veges in.

I always add extra flavours to my noodle soups, so like green curry pastw (if I have it), soy sauce, some kind of fond, coconut milk powder, ginger, garlic.

@katherine these aren't what I consider comfort food though. What I really make when I want comfort food, but takes a bit more spoons is rice, with peas or sweet corn, and some delicious sauce or gravy (which ever one you prefer really). And it's just my favorite comfort food.

@maloki oh yeah when I have the energy and want a treat I will put the effort in and make egg fried rice with veggies and fried tofu - it is wonderful. The other two you mentioned sound lovely too, I’m absolutely gay for simple soups, especially ones with soy sauce and noodles 💛

@katherine this is what it looked like last time. When I had energy for fresh veges.
