Just 16 Helpful Tips If You're Cooking For One
Cooking for one sounds simple in theory, but somehow, making food for just you is a lot more complicated than cooking for a group.
We're two people who live/cook alone and have been doing it for years. Here are some our favorite tried and true tips:
1. Make frozen fruits and vegetables your BFFs.
2. Give frozen protein a try.
3. And know what other foods you can freeze.
4. Befriend the humble potato (or sweet potato).
Eggs are often championed as the ideal easy, scalable dinner for one, but you shouldn't sleep on potatoes! They last forever, are super cheap, and a single serving can easily be cooked in the microwave. A baked potato topped with a can of Amy’s chili and enjoyed with a side of frozen steamed broccoli is a great place to start your cooking for one journey.
