  • - And you only need to add it all the way up to the top

  • and I'm spilling, I'm spilling, I'm spilling.

  • Oh, oh, okay.

  • Cute.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Hi, my name's Selorm Kploanyi.

  • I'm a Buzzfeed producer, food level, amateur chef

  • and I'm making this video because lately,

  • it's really hard to go the grocery store.

  • So many of us are in our homes currently on lockdown

  • due to COVID-19.

  • A lot of us are reacting to this in different ways.

  • Some of us are panicking internally

  • and some of us are just completely chill

  • while some of us are panicking at the grocery store.

  • - Many stores are experiencing supply shortages.

  • - [Reporter] Shelves are empty and the lines are long.

  • - Buying more than you need,

  • means that others may be left without.

  • - I feel like at the beginning

  • of like when people started to take this really seriously,

  • I was hanging out with a friend and we went to Trader Joe's

  • to go get some food, there was nothing.

  • Freezer aisle, empty. (bang sound)

  • Pantry aisle, empty. (bang sound)

  • Cheese aisle, empty. (bang sound)

  • I literally walked out of the store

  • with a baguette and condiments.

  • What am I supposed to do with that?

  • So the problem that I have with this

  • is that there isn't actually a food shortage happening

  • and if things continue to go in this direction,

  • it could actually lead to prices going up

  • for items that are harder to find in stores.

  • I don't know man, I'm hungry

  • so I'm gonna go to the grocery store

  • and see if I can make myself dinner tonight.

  • Let's go.

  • (carrier screeching)

  • (exhaling)

  • Okay,

  • I'm back from the grocery store.

  • We arrived at the grocery store and we had to stand in line

  • and at first I was like freaked out

  • because I thought that that meant

  • that there were a lot of people in the store,

  • but what I realized is that it's actually

  • because they kind of we're letting more people in

  • as people came out.

  • It was so much easier for us to distance ourselves

  • from each other so I actually really appreciated

  • the way that they were handling it.

  • When I got there, I noticed

  • that there was a lot of stuff missing.

  • Flour and eggs were really hard to find

  • so that's gonna rule out all of recipes

  • that I can do with those.

  • The produce section and the vegetable section

  • were completely untouched.

  • So with my leftover grocery store food,

  • I'm gonna try to make an appetizer, a main meal

  • and a dessert for myself tonight.

  • Okay, so we're here in my makeshift kitchen

  • and the first thing that we're gonna make

  • is probably the last thing that we're gonna eat, dessert.

  • Since fruit seems to be really readily available

  • at a lot of grocery stores,

  • I thought it'd be cool to make

  • a fruit Popsicle.

  • It's great because it's pretty much just water

  • and fruit and honey.

  • So I'm just gonna start by cutting up some strawberries

  • 'cause this is going to go inside of the ice pops.

  • I'm gonna try to get them a little bit small

  • and of course make sure you wash your fruit.

  • Off to a good start so far.

  • Okay, so at the store I found little ice pop trays.

  • It's cute they've got about six in them

  • so I'm going to put the strawberries inside of these

  • along with some blueberries.

  • So I say just add as many

  • until you feel like you've got enough fruit in there.

  • Next, we're gonna add a little bit of honey

  • and a little bit of water.

  • So this is just kind of to sweeten it up a little bit

  • then after adding the honey, we're gonna add some water.

  • And you only need to add it all the way up to the top

  • and I'm spilling, I'm spilling, I'm spilling.

  • Oh, oh, okay.

  • Cute.

  • Then we're gonna put the little icicle pops on it

  • to close it up.

  • Okay, so now I'm gonna put these in the freezer

  • for about five hours

  • and then we're gonna started with the rest of the food.

  • So at the grocery store I was able to find

  • some shrimp, garlic, I was able to find some bread.

  • There was mayonnaise, was able to find some butter

  • which was great so I think I'm gonna make

  • a shrimp toast appetizer to start with.

  • What I like about this recipe is that

  • it doesn't really need a lot of ingredients.

  • The main thing that you do need is the shrimp.

  • Now, a lot of times when I've seen this

  • it's fried shrimp toast.

  • We don't really have eggs and we don't really have flour

  • because all of that is gone from the grocery stores

  • so right now I wanna try to bake it.

  • So the first thing I'm gonna do is take the shrimp

  • and cut them into little pieces

  • and you only need about six ounces of this shrimp.

  • Trying not to cut my fingers.

  • So I'm just gonna go back in

  • and make sure that it's as finely chopped up as it can be.

  • So now we have a proper plate of shrimp mush.

  • So now that the shrimp is cut up,

  • we're gonna add some ingredients.

  • I'm gonna add three tablespoons of mayo,

  • three tablespoons of butter, melted of course

  • and then three cloves of garlic just to give it some flavor.

  • (screaming)

  • I'm not a Tasty producer, guys.

  • Last minute, I kinda thought that I wanted to add

  • a little bit more spice to it.

  • So along with the mayo,

  • I'm gonna add some sriracha.

  • In addition to those ingredients,

  • I'm gonna add some salt and pepper.

  • Okay, now we're gonna mix all of these ingredients up.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Okay, so now what we're gonna do

  • is spread this mixture onto a slice of bread.

  • So you're gonna wanna get the bread ready to go in the oven

  • by spreading the mixture that we just made on top of it.

  • I want this toast to be thick.

  • I want it to be thick with some shrimps, okay?

  • So we're just gonna bedazzle this on.

  • Okay, so I'm gonna bake this for about 15 to 20 minutes

  • until we can see that the top is a nice golden brown

  • and then we'll move on to the next meal.

  • Hi, Hello.

  • (petting sound) Hello

  • I'm sorry,

  • So for the main meal, I've decided that I wanna make

  • a vegetable Buddha bowl.

  • So at the grocery store I was able to find

  • a lot of vegetables and I was also able to find lentils.

  • I'm gonna make the Buddha bowl

  • comprised of cauliflower, broccoli, sweet potatoes,

  • spring mix of kale and spinach and lentils.

  • All of these things really can be subbed out

  • for other things like any vegetables that you can find

  • in the grocery store,

  • I think that it's okay to throw them in.

  • Now, if you're not able to find lentils,

  • that's perfectly fine.

  • You can swap them out for some other sort of protein.

  • I found a recipe for a Buddha bowl on tasty.com.

  • So the first thing I'm gonna do

  • is get all these ingredients into the oven.

  • Sweet potato, some broccoli, cauliflower.

  • So first we're gonna drizzle some oil onto it.

  • 1/3 of a cup of oil.

  • So we're gonna add some salt and pepper to taste.

  • So now I'm gonna take these away and put them in the oven

  • for about ten minutes.

  • So after the vegetables have been in the oven

  • for about ten minutes,

  • I'm gonna take them out and add the greens.

  • And once again going to add some oil,

  • We're just going to mix all that oil in and make sure

  • that it's lathered in there and then

  • I'm gonna put it back in the oven for about 10 minutes.

  • Sober on the stove, I'm also heating up some lentils.

  • So I'll be adding those to the Buddha bowl too.

  • Okay, we did it, the meal is done,

  • everything is in the oven or in the freezer

  • and they're about ready to come out

  • and I'm about ready to eat.

  • So let's do this and let's reveal what I've made.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Okey, so I have my beautiful three course meal here

  • I'm so happy and so excited to eat this.

  • My dog is desperately trying to get in here.

  • Hi

  • So let's start with the shrimp toast.

  • (humming)

  • This is way better than I was expecting it to be.

  • I wanted to use a different bread like sourdough or baguette

  • or something like that, but this actually really works.

  • This was definitely a success.

  • Okay, one more bite, moving on.

  • Next, we have the Buddha bowl.

  • Like I said, I put lentils in this, a little protein.

  • Let's just eat it.

  • (upbeat music)

  • I'm into this one, It's nice you know,

  • 'cause it's a healthy thing.

  • How can you feel bad about yourself after you eat

  • freakin' cauliflower?

  • Cauliflower, so healthy.

  • I'm glad they love the vegetables

  • Y'all are missing out.

  • Dang guys, I made this, Wow.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Another shrimp toast.

  • So last, but certainly not least

  • we have, the fruit popsicles.

  • Oh no, Oh no

  • I'm so sorry okay, am I bothering you?

  • No, because you'll yell me if I feed you something.

  • "You can't feed dogs anything."

  • Let's just try it out, let's see how it works.

  • I freaking did that.

  • If I could do something differently with this,

  • I'm noticing that a lot of the honey

  • kinda sank to the bottom, So a lot of the honey is here

  • but like not so much like here.

  • But it still tastes really good.

  • (humming)

  • My favorite things were the shrimp toasts

  • and the ice pops.

  • Not because the Buddha bowl was bad,

  • it was just like, I know I can make this

  • like it's a bunch of things kind of mixed together.

  • Long story short, if you find yourself in a situation

  • where you're at the grocery store,

  • and the eggs and the flour and the milk are all gone,

  • just try to make some of these other things

  • with some vegetables and fruits, whatever else you can find

  • and hopefully the stores will restock themselves

  • before you get back there next time.

  • Okay, bye.

  • (kissing)

  • Oh, I touch my face.

  • (upbeat music)

- And you only need to add it all the way up to the top
