Put down that punnet of bad sushi, let this industrial dish wait in your freezer and indulge yourself in solitary pleasure by drawing from these three recipes for one person published in The Guardian by the Anglo-Israeli leader. A new episode of our weekly meeting “The recipe mail”.

Talking about cooking recipes is generally talking about conviviality. Too often we assume that there is a group of people around the table – family, friends, roommates – but this is not always the case, on the contrary.

Whatever the reason we eat alone – we live alone, the person who shares our life is not here, it’s Monday evening and we just want to have a quiet dinner – this meal is not always more correct.

Cooking for one and having a meal alone should be fun. It calms, we are quiet and, oh delicious selfishness, we can eat all the contents of the pan (and directly in the pan if we want – no one is looking) on ​​our own.

Roasted sweet potato with tomato and feta

The sweet potato cooks quickly, making it ideal for a quick dinner for one. However, it can very well be replaced by another vegetable, an eggplant or a zucchini, for example. We give here the proportions for one person but we can easily increase the amount of sauce if we cook for several or in bulk. Serve with rice, couscous or green vegetables.
