Quick Pickled Cucumbers

If you are looking for a healthier alternative to a pickle, trying making quick pickled cucumbers. All you need is to combine white vinegar, balsamic vinegar, and some fresh or dried dill if you have it and let it marinate the cucumbers in the fridge for as long as you can wait.

Happy Monday 💚 . During revision meals and snacks basically become my favourite part of the day – breaks up the monotony of sitting at my desk! 😂 Last week I made this insane sandwich ft @strongrootsuk spinach and pumpkin burgers, quick pickled cucumber, greek yoghurt, smashed avo and rocket! 👌🏽👌🏽 . Not only was I craving something exciting, but I also can’t take too much time out from the books, 🤓 so I absolutely LOVE these burgers which I can just grab from the freezer and reheat. Means I can have a lunch as awesome as this ready in 15 minutes and very little washing up to do too! 👌🏽 . Full recipe on my blog!! And what a gorgeous day, let’s hope these blue skies stick around! ✌🏽 . . . #ad #strongroots #vegan #avocado #veggieburgers #simplemeals #veggie #vegansofig #vegetarian #pickles #quickpickledcucumber #burgers #simplefood #quickfood #foodie #justeat #goodfood #speediemeals #intuitiveeating #summerfood #bbqseason #goodnessguru

Poaching Eggs

A glug of vinegar is the secret to mastering the perfect poached egg. After the water comes to a boil, put in the vinegar and carefully drop in the egg. What the vinegar does is that it allows for the egg whites to coagulate while the center remains runny and delicious.

Hot Sauce

Hot peppers and vinegar are the two stars of most homemade hot sauces. Add garlic and salt, blend it all together, and you have homemade delicious hot sauce.
