Since I can't sleep, let me tell share a few things with you all : ) And btw, these are dishes which I find easy in terms of speed, simplicity, accommodating limited mental spoons - not necessarily great for manual dexterity issues, maybe they are, I just know that these recipes work for me. Mostly, they require some rough measuring and I suggest shiitake mushrooms as optional ingredients a couple times - they're not the easiest thing to cut.

1) Rice cookers! Possibly many of you know about these already, but for those who don't, the great thing about rice cookers is that you put in the rice, you put in the water, you turn it on, it cooks, it turns off automatically, and keeps it warm. On bad days, I've put the rice on, stumbled back to bed, and when I got up there was hot food for me to eat.

2) I tried one of the recipes from the Stone Soup cookbook which [personal profile] rydra_wong linked to a little while ago: the simple soba noodle soup with bok choy (page 21). Read more... )

3) Green beans and cashews )

Impossible Pie used to make regular appearances when I was a kid and we had visitors for dinner - in hindsight, I think it was Mum's "the kids are driving me up the wall and I don't have TIME to make apple pie" dish, but, just quietly, I like it better than "real" pie anyway!

Pros: Low prep, incredibly easy one-step mix, tastes delicious
Cons: You'll need to be able to lift a pie dish in and out of the oven; baking time is around an hour

4 eggs
1/2 cup butter or marg, melted
1/2 cup Plain flour
2 cups milk
1 cup sugar
1 cup dessicated coconut
2 teaspoons vanilla

What you do
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Pour mixture into a 25cm greased pie plate.
Bake at 180 degrees celcius for 1 hour or until centre is firm.

Other things you could do
* Add citrus peel and a dash of citrus juice, for citrus pie
* Apparently you can make a savoury version which is like quiche, but ridiculously easy.
