These hearty meatless burgers have serious buffalo wing flavor and a tangy blue cheese sauce drizzled over top. The patties freeze well, so make a double batch and store some for impromptu meals later.
Piled high with seasoned beans and veggies, these tostadas are more assembly than cooking. If you’re inviting your floormates to your room for dinner or a late-night snack, you can get extra fancy and add a dollop of sour cream, fresh cilantro or a dash of hot sauce.
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.
Buying precooked and frozen grains such as brown rice or quinoa makes it easy to add fiber to your meals without cooking them from scratch. Here, they’re tossed with chickpeas and an array of colorful veggies for a complete meal. The recipe makes a little more dressing than you’ll need, so we suggest reserving extras in the fridge for quick weeknight salads and slaws.
This recipe features black rice – a good source of fiber and antioxidants – and more veggies than the fried rice you’ll find in a takeout container. Cooking can dampen the benefits of probiotics, so a bit of uncooked kimchi is added as a boost just before serving.
This Asian-inspired recipe uses boneless chicken breasts, but boneless chicken thighs work just as well. If you want to give the dish a spicy spin, add one serrano hot pepper to the mixture before freezing; cook the pepper in the sauce then remove and discard it before serving.
Cutting chicken breasts into thin cutlets helps them cook quickly on the grill. A quick blender sauce with fresh basil and lime is smothered over top for a zesty, spicy kick.
