Brownie in a mug

 I remember a sheet in our lounge when I was living in Sangam World Centre in Pune (India). There was  a description how to make a brownie in a cup. I actually forgot it until a few days ago, when I saw a picture on Pinterest, describing the exactly same thing. Since now we've got a microwave in our apartment (which I recon it's not that healthy), I just had to try it.

At your left the picture of the mug before the microwave and down here after the microwave. I might have it overcooked a bit, but it was still delicious. (No, I didn't count the calories, who does it??)
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 pinch salt
2 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp water

I used a little less sugar and needed more water to make it smooth. At the end I put some dark chocolate on the top. It melted and was delicious!
Mix all the ingredients until smooth (see picture above). Put in the microwave for 1 minute 40 seconds. Our microwave is a little weaker, so I needed 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

Enjoy your brownie mug!

Volcano sushi

200 gr rice
1 tbsp vinegar
1tbsp sugar
150 gr smoked salmon
1 cucumber
chinese cabbage
chili powder

Cook the rice, add vinegar and sugar and mix it. Put cold rice with some salmon and cucumber in the volcano shaped tin (you can actually do any kind of shape you have at home). You can play with it, make stripes or put everything in the middle, however. Put everything in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Wash the cabbage and slice it thin. Add some chili powder, salt and vinegar (you can also add a little bit of oil) and put it on the plate next to your sushi.

How to turn this

into this! :)

leftover risotto
1 egg
parmesan cheese (optional)
sesame seeds

Put an egg in the risotto. If you want you can add some parmesan cheese or some vegetables, whatever you prefer. Make balls with the dough and roll them in the breadcrumbs mixed with sesame seeds. Heat some oil and deep fry them until golden. You can serve with some fresh salad or mashed potatoes (or whatever you feel to it with).
Good idea for all the leftover food? :)
