Single-Person Cooking – Genius Tips That Won’t Waste Food

Single-Person Cooking – Genius Tips That Won’t Waste Food

October 24, 2019

The joys of living alone! You are your own master! You get to do what you want, when you want, and eat what you crave for whenever it suits you. But then there is the other part of living alone – cooking. If you are in the habit of cooking in large quantities, or you have no clue as to how much to cook for a single person, you will end up wasting food. There is also the risk of eating unhealthily when you are alone. There are also messes to clean up all by yourself. Here are some genius tips to get you cooking the right potions as well as the right types of food.


  • Keep a can of whole peeled tomatoes at your disposal. Tomatoes form a great base for easy single-person recipes like a personal pizza on a Friday night, pasta on Saturday, and Shakshuka on Sunday. No wastage at all!
  • Make a quick microwaved mac and cheese in a mug. Opt for whole-wheat pasta instead of macaroni for a healthy twist. All you have to do is to microwave 3/4th cup pasta in a large quantity of water in a large bowl until cooked. Drain. Stir in 4 tablespoons milk, ¼ teaspoon cornstarch, and 5 tablespoons cheddar cheese. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir. Season with salt and pepper. Cooking time depends on the microwave. 
  • Make a healthy omelet with 2 eggs, a couple of chopped mushrooms, 2 teaspoons of sour cream, and whatever herbs you fancy. We suggest using fresh herbs as they make a world of difference.


Luckily, cooking for one does not have to be complicated. A cooking pot like the Aurora Luxe can be used to make a simple grill with sautéed vegetables on the side, a small stew, or even a nice juicy steak. So simple, so healthy, and so satisfying!
