Dyspraxic cooking presents the dyspraxic chef with two big problems and they are 1. finding the motivation to cook (hunger is not enough) 2. finding practical things to cook. (My imagination can run wild.)
The motivation for this one was home sickness more than anything. Although living away from home, you miss friends and family but I think its the food I pine for the most.
On the menu | Dyspraxic cooking
Living with dyspraxia can make it difficult when it comes to dyspraxic cooking, so my advice is, where possible keep it simple. And this Lancashire staple does just that. Jacket potatoes with cheese and beans is a quick and simple way for an adult living with dyspraxia to cook a lovely warm meal on a cold winters afternoon.
What will you need
- Beans in tomato sauce
- Salt and pepper
How to do it
When it comes to dyspraxic cooking, nothing is simple. The creation of this one is straightforward enough, it is just a case of boiling things. It is the quantity that I get wrong with the simple ones. I was serving myself and the frog. I cooked enough spuds but not enough beans for two.
One pan is needed for the spuds. Wash the spuds to make sure they are clean, you will leave the skin on them for this one (No need for that pesky peeling). Fill your pan with water and spuds, put it on a low heat and leave to boil. In a second pan place a tin of beans but wait before cooking as they will only take a few minutes.
When you can cut through the spud like you can cut through butter with a warm knife then you know it is time to warm up those beans.
What’s on that plate?
Tasty, tasty food, that’s what. A fairly quick and simple dish that should stave off the snacking until tea time. There was no stress with this dyspraxic cooking, just food.
Yours and Hungry,
The dyspraxic chef
