'Queer Eye's Antoni Porowski Is Dishing Out Quarantine Cooking Lessons
The first episode of “Quar Eye: Cooking Lessons in Quarantine” featured a simple omelette recipe.
After wrapping up your daily dose of Lizzo’s quarantine meditation, hop over to Antoni Porowski’s Instagram account to tune into an episode of “Quar Eye: Cooking Lessons in Quarantine.” There, Porowski, the Queer Eye team’s resident food expert, will teach you a simple, quick-to-make recipe that will quell your quarantine anxiety without dipping too far into your rations.
No doubt, it's a bizarre time RN. But the celebrity content during this era of uncertainty offers some much-needed positivity. (ICYMI, Lizzo's coronavirus meditation live-stream was *so* empowering.)
In Porowski's debut episode of “Quar Eye: Cooking Lessons in Quarantine,”, he teaches viewers how to make the “Keep Calm-lette.” As he says, “an omelette made in isolation is still an omelette. Served with a black bean salsa made with whatever was left at the grocery store.”
In the video, Porowski says he went to the grocery store with the intention of buying ingredients for huevos rancheros. However, when he entered the store, he realized that many of the ingredients he was looking for simply weren’t there.
“I know that that’s something that everybody’s experiencing…not just toilet paper,” he said. “Which also, you shouldn’t be panic-ly and maniacally stocking up on tons of food because it takes away from other people. You should shop like a European and just get a few things at a time and just leave some for others.”
Even though you're likely stuck at home with somewhat limited means, you can still prepare delicious meals that are enjoyable to eat and “make you feel good,” as Porowski said. And all you need to make your first feel-good meal is canned beans (which are high in fiber and protein, and are super cheap), red onion, tomato, avocado, lime, oil or butter, and eggs. (If you have leftover avocado, put some of Porowski's guacamole hacks to good use.)
Now that you're inevitably going to be stuck at home for the foreseeable future, be sure to tune in for all the upcoming episodes of “Quar Eye.”
