I've changed my eating habits to lose weight and I've found that my hunger relates mostly to the amount of protein I get. I can reduce my caloric intake without going mad of hunger by ensuring I eat high-protein foods.
I made "The lazy way of rice", from a YouTube video by Xiaoying. It was easy and it tasted really nice. Like a fried rice without the frying part.
It's vegan if you replace the oyster sauce with either mushroom soy or hoisin sauce, and the sausage with vegan sausage or smoked tofu.
It's the first recipe in this video: https://youtu.be/078hpg4N7tw
Sauerkraut - S01E01
First success ever with Sauerkraut (this time curiosity didn't kill the lact!), first batch with new dedicated hardware <3
Epic SUCCESS!! \o/
Maybe a bit too salty (was just 2%, between the 1.5%-2.5% bracked usually considered the safest, will lower in next attempt), and maybe a little bit too much of these spices (black, red pepper + cumin), but overall AMAZING! So crunchy and rich in taste! And that *juice* hmmmm!!
If you've ever lived without a kitchen for two months, maybe you'll understand how happy the oven vegetables that @sixohsix just served made me.

A little treat for users of kith.kitchen:
I occasionally like to toy around with little programming projects that don't see the light of day.
Last week I decided to Actually Finish Something, so I've thrown together a little recipe book website for kith.kitchen users to record and publish recipes.
It's early days at the moment, but the plan is to slowly and steadily improve it.
Check it out at https://recipes.kith.kitchen - feel free to give it a try!
@ehashman mmm, that soup looks great. I always blend mine up but I like the chunky look of yours. Gotta try that next time.
I currently have a temporary kitchen, while waiting for a full kitchen to be installed. It has a portable induction cooktop.
If you look on Wikipedia there's a lot of debate about if induction is more efficient than other types, but as a cook I can tell you it's pretty amazing. Pots get hot fast, but can then be turned down quickly. I've never had such immediate control of heat, or such high heat when I want it.
Gas is probably similar, but it consumes the oxygen in your kitchen. Not for me.
@dthompson @brennen I'm trying to get a kitchen installed. I have a company that designs kitchens but they refuse to touch the plumbing or electrical, but they have extremely specific requirements for plumbing and electrical. So I have to try and explain these requirements I don't fully understand to the contractors who do the other things, and the kitchen company is grumpy because the result is not exact. It's the dumbest game of broken telephone.
@Stacky it's selling the cooker, which has a special temperature control mode that transforms the brown rice into a more nutritious, lower GI food substance.
It has to cook for 2 hours but people claim it tastes really good.
I'm thinking about buying a new rice cooker. Probably the cuckoo brand, which is Korean.
I think this bonkers ad they made convinced me. Dancing rice grains? Cheery music? Dubious health claims? I'm in.
@shatteredgears okay, thank you for sharing. That makes me feel a lot better about my costs. I'm looking at 10,000 EUR for my kitchen, but it's a very tiny kitchen with average appliances and no remodeling planned.
All about food, friends, cooking and community.
