Living abroad you get to see some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes and architecture, experience new cultures and try exotic cuisine. Chances are, after months of that exotic cuisine, you’ve started to miss your favorite foods from home. Sure you can try to find a western restaurant that serves the dishes you’re missing, but you’ll pay for it and it probably won’t be the same. Your kitchen is probably also the size of a closet with nothing more than a dorm-sized refrigerator and a two burner propane cooktop. The local grocery store is filled with unfamiliar foodstuffs and you can’t find what you need to make your favorite meal.
Everyone living abroad goes through this at some point. But you don’t have to. Here you can find recipes for comfort foods that you can make with revised ingredients and limited workspace, using just your cooktop, a rice cooker and a toaster oven. Browse the recipes, try something new and enjoy a little bit of home away from home.
