As requested by an old friend I met in Pn. Ainon BM tuition when we were 14. I will always remember this particular tuition as this was the tuition where I specifically tell my mother to come pick me up 15 minutes late. The reason was to have conversations with girls whose parents come late. Right, Andy?
Anyways, it was Amanda’s birthday and she specifically asked for healthy, so healthy it is. Moreover it was the 1st of April and I was so afraid that I’d get April fooled by her.
The spaghetti used were wholemeal spaghetti.
The healthiest available type in Tesco.
1 serving, nothing more nothing less. Exactly 80 grams. Keeping in line with ‘healthy’.
Soaked it in water.
Between Basso’s extra virgin olive oil and Tesco’s organic extra virgin oil,
I chose Tesco’s cause it’s healthier as it’s organic.
Spices used were cayenne pepper,
3 cloves of garlic and
1 bird’s eye chili.
Boiled spaghetti al dente.
After 8 minutes, the spaghetti was sieved.
½ tablespoon of butter to toss. I usually use 1 tablespoon but then again, birthday girl wanted ‘healthy’ so I kept in line with healthy and reduced the amount used by ½.
Sauteed the spice to bring out the aroma and flavour before tossing it with the spaghetti.
Transferred the spaghetti from a bowl to a microwavable food box.
Added in 1 stalk of raw celery to score extra ‘health’ points.
Covered the 2 boxes and gave her a disposable fork.
Lunch was delivered by 1 pm.
So how was it, Amanda? Spicy right?
