4 Foods You Can Learn How to Cook in Your Twenties

Being a great cook might not come naturally to some people. Either they don’t have the experience, or they find that they like to do something else than spending a lot of time in the kitchen. On top of that, one needs to deal with the dirty dishes once everything is ready for boiling or baking.

But cooking for yourself doesn’t have to be a chore. One of the essential things that everyone needs to understand is that homemade food is invariably better than anything you might get pre-made or from a fast-food joint.

To create perfect recipes, you may need several appliances that can make your life easier. One of them is a scale, with the help of which you will measure the right amount of everything that will go into your dishes. This review on gram scales can help you pick the right model.

Without further ado, here are six recipes you can learn to cook all by yourself when you’re in your twenties.

There are a lot of variations when it comes to guacamole. Some people have nothing against eating a lot of garlic, but others might be a bit more self-conscious, especially if they have to withstand an hour on public transportation.

You need some ripe avocados, salt and pepper to taste, and lemon or lime juice. Other things you can add to the recipe range from white onion and garlic to cilantro and jalapeno.

All you need to do is mash everything with a fork, but you can also use the food processor for larger amounts. The lime or lemon juice is necessary because avocado tends to go brown really quickly, and the acid in citrus fruits helps slow down the process.

Eggs are very versatile, and they’re not as unhealthy as some might argue. Apparently, if you eat an average of 7 to 8 eggs per week, you should be good in terms of your cholesterol. That is if your health is on par already and you don’t need to live by a diet.

Frittata can have anything in it from sauteed veggies to cheese and basil. Some might even add pre-boiled potatoes. All you have to do is get everything ready in the pan, cook the eggs with veggies on the stovetop for a little while, and then put everything into the oven for ten minutes or so.

Nothing’s easier than chopping up some veggies and adding them to a bowl. If you want your salads to be more creative, you can add things like pomegranate seeds, sliced avocado, boiled eggs, pickles, or anything else that might tickle your fancy.

You can even make a healthy dressing with a bit of olive oil, vinegar, as well as any spices you might enjoy.

Mashed potatoes
Creamy mashed potatoes are hard to come by, but they don’t have to be very complicated to make. All you need is equally cut potatoes, a bit of butter or cream, and all the cheese or bacon you want.
Boil the potatoes until they are soft and then mash everything up with the butter and cream. You can add more milk until you get the right consistency. Nothing tastes better than mashed potatoes to which you’ve added a bit of cheddar cheese, so do try it out if you’re in the mood.
