Simply food that I can make

I realy want to cook simple food with out recipes.
I have normal raw rat meat but to cook it I need recipe of soup, why can’t I roust it at campfire so that I can eat it with less heal efect at list.
There is my idea, I don’t know if its good but I think it will be funny if there are foods thats give biger buff with less debuff for example alcochol its give strenght buff but you scean is fuzzy and you take litle more demage.
