Get ready for the biggest revelation in dorm-room cooking: kettle eggs! Yes, you can actually make hard-boiled eggs in an electric kettle. (Fun fact: Our senior graphic designer, Alaina Greenberg, makes them almost daily in our office!) If you don’t have a kettle, you can also buy packaged pre-boiled eggs for this recipe.
A quick blender sauce using almond butter, roasted bell peppers, parsley and a few pantry staples helps this noodle dish shine. If you have any sauce leftover, cover and refrigerate it to use throughout the week as a dip for raw vegetables. Instead of cooking the noodles on the stove, we soak the noodles in boiling water from the kettle. Plus, buying a precooked rotisserie chicken and shredding it avoids the cleanup and hassle of cooking it from scratch.
A creamy ginger and lemongrass–infused dressing makes this bowl a tropical treat, while hemp hearts and toasted unsweetened coconut add a bit of crunch.
