Easy meals to make in your dorm room
By Amanda Fraser
Living in a dorm can be tiring, especially when your diet consists of eating noodles and granola bars 24/7. Going grocery shopping can be one of the hardest things to do on your own and a bit intimidating if you do not know where to start. This list can help those living on campus make easy and delicious meals!
1. Avocado toast
This is a quick and simple way to make breakfast. All that is needed is an avocado or two, toast and a little seasoning.
2. Spaghetti and meatballs
Spaghetti and meatballs can be made in a one pot. All it takes is pasta, a choice of sauce and pre-made meatballs.
3. Chicken and rice
Rotisserie chicken is often sold pre-cooked. Simply shred it and add Ben’s Original Ready Rice—it only takes 90 seconds to cook in the microwave. Then add salt and pepper and a few vegetables to make a great meal.
4. Quinoa salad
Quinoa can be cooked on the stove and it does not take a long time. Then you can add lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, avocado, tomatoes, etc., to make the quinoa more flavorful.
While pancakes usually take milk, eggs and oil, Bisquick’s Original Pancake mix only needs water. If you prefer waffles, buy a small waffle maker that is easy to wash and maintain.
Small steaks can be cooked in a pan. Just make sure to have a meat thermometer on hand.
Using Ben’s Original Ready Rice and cutting up steak or chicken, you can create a bowl or wrap tailored to your taste. Salsa, lettuce, sour cream, tomatoes and cilantro are great options. Turning your bowl into a wrap is easy and tortillas make the meal more filling.
