Personally, I think meal preparation involves a certain level of compromise between couples as well as among family members. Usually, I tried to cook dishes that my beloved and I would enjoy together. Having said that, there are a couple of dishes that I will only make for myself such as my cheat Prawn Noodle Soup which is a concoction of one tablespoon of Singlong Sambal Chilli, a packet of Indomie Mi Goreng and 1 cup of water.
It’s okay if you dislike the sound of it, because my beloved felt the same way too. I have accepted the fact that being a couple does not mean we have to like the same things, or in this instance, the same food.
When my beloved was away for a conference over the past weekend, I savoured the opportunity to cook for myself. I have this huge cravings for noodle soup and after a quick look through in my fridge and pantry, I had what I needed to make a 4-ingredients tofu miso ramen. To add some flair to the ramen, I decided to go with a hard boiled egg and a nori sheet which were optional. This recipe required little time to cook and ideal for cooking for one person.
