Vegetarian Cooking!

Let me start by saying that I’m not a good cook. I can make probably 3 or 4 things (mostly pasta) and all these things are quite similar to each other. I cook for myself about 3 times a week so most of the time, I just rotate among these 3 or 4 things so that I don’t have to eat the same thing every single day.

Being a vegetarian, I eat a lot of fruits. On average, I eat about 3 types of fruits per day. For example, today I ate a bowl of grapes, some strawberries and a pear. I just love fruits.

Today, I made myself a spaghetti with spinach, mushroom, veggie burger patty, topped with cream of mushroom! It may not sound/look very appetizing but it is easy to cook and tastes good.

Here are the steps to make the spaghetti:

  1. Put the veggie burger patty in a preheated oven (400F) and set the timer to 13-15 minutes.
  2. Boil a pot of water.
  3. Wash and slice up the white mushrooms.
  4. Wash the spinach.
  5. Add the mushrooms to the pot of boiling water. Let them boil for 5 minutes.
  6. Add the spinach to the pot of boiling mushrooms. Let them boil for 2 minutes.
  7. Drain the water.
  8. Since I had cooked extra spaghetti last night, I didn’t have to do it again today. Otherwise, just put some dried spaghetti into a pot of boiling water and let them boil for 10 minutes or so. Make sure that you stir the spaghetti once in a while. After 10 minutes, drain the spaghetti and blast them with cold water! This will prevent them from sticking together.
  9. By this time, the veggie burger patty should be ready. Cut it into smaller pieces.
  10. Put the spaghetti, cooked mushrooms and spinach, and pieces of veggie burger patty into a pot.
  11. Add in the canned cream of mushrooms. I don’t know about you but I love cream of mushroom so I usually add the whole can.
  12. Add about half a can of water into the mixture.
  13. Put the mixture on the stove and let it boil for 3 minutes or so. Stir continuously.
  14. You can spice it up by adding seasonings. I usually add a lot of pepper.

That’s it. You just cook yourself a quick (and tasty!) meal.
