Cooking for one can be challenging. As a single person there is a temptation to go for ready prepared meals and takeaway, but these are often not healthy options and you will have much more control over your diet if you cook for yourself. You may even surprise yourself and find it fun to try out new recipes.
There are many amazing recipes out there but they are often designed for at least four people. It isn’t always possible to modify these recipes for one person. Some ingredients are easier to reduce than others. It is easy to measure out a quarter of a tablespoon of olive oil if the recipe calls for a tablespoon of olive oil but chopping up a raw egg is not so easy.
Along with checking out the ingredients, having the right equipment can make your cooking more straightforward. This is my list of the top five pieces of kitchen equipment I recommend single cooks keep in the house.
