After 4 years at University my cooking skills have developed, I cook all my meals from scratch, under a great budget thanks to Aldi. I love to experiment and try new things.
I also never have that much time to cook, like most students, plus we can be lazy when we want to be, so here are 5 meals, for breakfast, dinner and tea, that are quick and easy to make.
1 Banana, mashed
1 egg, beaten
25g Rolled oats, blended
– Mix the banana, egg and oats to make the pancake batter.
– Heat up some oil in a frying pan over a medium heat.
– Pour little puddles of batter into the pan
– Cook for about 1 minute on each side.
Ham and Egg Cups
2 slices of Ham
– Preheat oven to 200 degrees
– Lightly coat 2 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.
– Fit 1 slice of ham into each muffin cup (ham will hang over edges of cups).
– Crack 1 egg into each cup and season with salt/pepper
– Bake in middle of oven until whites are cooked but yolks are still runny, about 13 minutes.
Chicken and Chorizo Risotto
2 Chicken Breasts, roughly chopped
400g Risotto Rice
1 Courgette, diced
1 Red Onion, diced
1 litre of Chicken Stock
– Fry onion in small amount of oil until soft, then add chicken
– Once chicken is cooked through add the chorizo and cook for 3 minute
– Add risotto rice and fry for 3 minutes, then add stock
– Allow it to simmer for 15 minutes, regularly stirring, then add courgette
– Cook for a further 10 minutes, when rice is fully cooked at parmesan and allow to sit for 2 mins before serving.
1 Red onion, diced
25g Parmesan, grated
– Cook spaghetti in boiling water for 12 minutes and drain (save ladle of pasta water)
– Fry onion in small amount of oil until soft, then add bacon and fry until crispy, then add mushrooms
– Beat egg and add grated parmesan, mix together
– Add spaghetti to onion and bacon, along with pasta water, then stir in egg and cheese, cook for around 3/4 minutes, then serve.
I would love to hear more quick healthy meals that I could try while I am at University.
