This is going to sound like a lot of work, but trust us it’s not! Pre-heat the over and bake the chicken in closed aluminium foil for 15 minutes, remember to marinate it with some spices like basil and oregano. While the chicken is cooking in the oven, boil a pot of salt water and add potatoes when they come to a boil. In a smaller saucepan, heat butter and milk over low heat until the butter melts completely. Mash the potatoes, mix them with the sauce and it is ready to be served!

If you love your rice, this is a simple one. Seperately pan fry your preferred vegetable in sesame oil and set it aside. Keep in mind bibimbap usually includes bean sprout, carrot, shitake mushrooms and spinach! If you’d like, pan fry some minced meat with sesame oil and a dash of soy sauce. Assemble them on a bed of rice and top it with sunny side up.

Eggplant Bruschetta

Putting a twist to your usual bruschetta, use eggplants as your base instead! Slice the eggplants horizontally, toss them in some olive oil and season it with salt and pepper before popping them into the oven for baking. While that is cooking, pan fry diced cherry tomatoes with garlic and oregano. Remove the eggplants from the oven, top it with tomatoes and continue baking it for another 5 minutes!
