I'm in Beijing, and due to the coronavirus, most restaurants are closed, and most of those that are open are take-away only. It's generally best not to go out. I'd like to cook but I'm limited to what I have available:
- a flat-bottom kettle (i.e., no coil),
- a teaspoon,
- a bowl,
- a pair of scissors, and
- a old pasta sauce glass jar that fits in the kettle. [Update: The links in the answers suggest this might be useful---I was about to throw it away.]
I also have access to: (a) a nearby shop which sells fruit and vegetables, and (b) an Wumei supermarket about 1.5kms away. I'd prefer not to buy kitchenware because my room is tiny so I'd have trouble storing it, and I'd probably have to throw anything I buy away in two months or so when I move.
I have no stove, tabletop burner nor anything like that (unless I go out and buy one, and I don't intend to)---just a kettle.
Recently, I've been feeling unwell partly due to eating only kettle-cooked pasta, instant noodles, and some kind of imported muesli. I really want to have more variety and nutrition, and I'd strongly prefer something vegetarian.
Question: How can I cook a nutritious vegetarian meal using only a kettle, a teaspoon, a bowl, and a pair of scissors?
