If you are thinking of starting cooking as a hobby, there are plenty of exotic recipes that you can try. Different cultures often have different recipes and ingredients that they commonly use. Make sure you have enough kitchen equipment, such as wok to make a quick stir fry, and an electric whisk to make your cooking that little bit more efficient and enjoyable.
Here are some great recipes to try this summer.
Summer rolls are a delicious dinner or lunch for warm weather, and are easy to prepare at home to take with you in a picnic or lunchbox. Once you master this simple recipe and the rolling, you can move on to creating your own combinations. Why not add chicken, pork or beef – along with some great garnishings of course! You can easily make some vegetarian options as well.
Chicken teriyaki is a quick and easy meal to make, great if you are just beginning your cooking journey. From pan to table in around 20 minutes, it is also great to make if you are in a rush or feeling lazy after work. Simply add a pinch of ginger and garlic powder for that extra flavour – you can also substitute the chicken to make your own recipe.
Greek chicken pasta
Greek chicken pasta is a family favourite and full of flavour. Much more than a simple pasta and chicken dish, you can expect to add tomatoes, olives, garlic, lemon zest and a variety of spices. With an average cooking time of 20 minutes, this will be sure to impress and is an easy meal to get started with.
Yakisoba noodle stir fry
Yakisoba is easy and quick to make – it is a traditional Japanese stir-fry with a flavour you’ll enjoy thanks to its iconic salty, sweet, sour, and spicy sauce! You may choose to keep the recipe straightforward with only cabbage and onions or you can try mixing it up and creating your own concoction of ingredients. Other foods that work well in this dish include chopped carrot, red bell peppers, sliced or cut-up zucchini, Chicken, Snap Peas, Shrimp, and Broccoli. In order to make the stir fry sauce, begin to mix soy sauce, sugar, rice vinegar, red pepper flakes, and water. This will create the famous sweet and sour flavour that everyone loves.
