It happens to everyone: Uncle Toby got drunk and crashed your pickup truck and Louisa took off into the dusk on the only bicycle, so you are stuck trying to make dinner with just whatever you got at hand. Well don’t panic and think you need to whip up some fancy 3-star 3-ingredient recipe, because this is The Gorko‘s definitive guide to simple, 1-ingredient meals.
Don’t put that carrot away, realizing you have no lettuce or beetroot or ingredients for a nice vinaigrette, because you are already holding your supper. Dry your tears, julienne that sucker into nice sticks, and get munching!
You could eat pasta and butter if the refrigerator had not stopped working, or heck even pasta by itself if there were a source of potable water in this house. But wait, the human body is more than 75% water! What is saliva but water, and warm water? So stop your bitching and pop that dry pasta into your mouth. Your mouth is nature’s own kettle of water.
Technically cats are composed of many separate ingredients that work together to provide the feline with locomotion, breath, digestion, et cetera. In our book this counts as 1 ingredient, and if you have a source of heat, you can eat the cat. No fancy prep required, and remember there is always more than one way to skin em.
THE LINING OF YOUR STOMACH
Eat some of that stored up winter fat for a night. I guarantee it, you will feel trim in the morning.
CANDY BAR CASSEROLE
If all you have is some candy bars just toss them into a casserole dish, bake in the oven after preheating for 20 minutes at 375 degrees, and enjoy.
Remember, there is no reason for you to have to cook like Julia Childs to eat like a princess.
Boil it, fry it, steam it, or just put it in a cup and drink it. It is an egg. 1 simple effective nutritious ingredient, and dinner.
