I have no idea how to make good food other than breakfast foods(Eggs, toast, etc) and spaghetti.

I'd really like to stop eating frozen pizzas and stuff. How do I find better stuff to make or eat?

at the very least can y'all recommend me a cookbook or something? Im an American(Texan). I just don't want to die from clogged arteries from eating only pizza, greek yogurt and milk

pan fry some nice green veg like broccoli or brussel sprouts

You can always spruce up your frozen pizzas with fresh ingredients.

I do want to try Broccoli. The little trees look really good. I've never had brussel sprouts so ill see if i can find a recipe with them or something.

What the heck does Cauliflower taste like? it looks so odd

Yep, "Joy of Cooking" is a great book.

I also liked "The Kitchen Survival Guide" by Lora Brody. The recipes are very simple, but it's designed for college kids who have never cooked.

curry is tasty and extremely easy to make, just get a decent quality curry powder, toss it in with onions and garlic and olive oil to create a kind of paste, brown whatever meat you're using, then add a decent amount of water and simmer that shit for hours. I also find curry powders usually aren't spicy enough so I add cayenne or any other dried hot peppers.

Raw cauliflower tastes kinda like a milder form of cabbage. When it's cooked it tastes like ass.

For broccoflower? I love you texans but cmon man

Throw some ginger in with the garlic and youve got a real curry. The great thing about Indian curry is it ranges from rather simplistic to intoxicatingly complex if you use plenty of fresh spices and vegetables for the base

Start with The Joy of Cooking. You can also try out How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman. I suppose that's more of a contemporary take on things. But basically, you'll need to increase your repertoire and that's really easy to do. The newer editions of The Joy of Cooking have more than just American fare so that's nice to have that variety. A lot to good cooking is in seasoning. Sometimes just salt and pepper just won't cut it. It'd still be decent but not good. Try to do a new dish a week and you'll be in good shape.

I call bait.

Curry is the tastiest food you will ever eat. Take it sensibly with rice and/or bread and your toilet will be spared, just think of it like hugely spiced chilli (chilli pretty much is a curry)
>>
>>7290313
boil brussel(s) sprouts in a lil water and lots of butter, little salt and pepper. easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
>>
>>7290438
You've had coleslaw before, right? That's essentially cabbage slathered in mayo.
