5-Minute Meal Ideas for College Students
We all know that college life can be hectic. You have so many things to do yet so little time. You have your project deadline, your midterm, and don’t forget your basketball practice. Oh, and you still have to squeeze in that volunteer work you agreed on. Oftentimes, your schedule gets too hectic that you don’t have the time to prepare a nice meal.
What if there is a way wherein you can still do all your college activities while having time to make delicious food? Here are some 5-Minute Meal Ideas for college students.
5-Minute Healthy Pizza
Let us start with everyone’s favorite comfort food, pizza!
Instead of using pizza dough, you can use any type of bread as a substitute. Some people use French bread, English muffins, and some even use loaf. Choose whatever kind of bread is available.
Next, spread on some tomato sauce on top, then sprinkle it with cheese and your choice of toppings. You could add ham, bacon, or pepperoni.
Once everything is prepped, slide it into your oven or even toaster, and just wait for the cheese to melt. That’s it, your own college-friendly, easy-to-make pizza.
Quick Leftover Stirfry
Do not throw away those leftovers just yet. Maximize your food by creating a quick meal using some of your leftovers.
If you have any leftover meat, stir fry them over a hot pan using a bit of oil. You can then add any vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, string beans, carrot, or whatever is in their fridge. Just make sure that your vegetables are not soggy. Add a little bit of oyster sauce and your preferred spices. Mix it up altogether and pair it up with a cup of hot rice, and you are good to go.
Quick Easy Ramen
Tired of the instant ramen you buy from the grocery store? Then create one yourself with this quick and easy recipe. Boil a pot of water and then add your choice of broth cubes. You can either use chicken, pork, or beef. Add your spaghetti noodles and cook until al dente. Put in some leftover meat and vegetable if you like. For the final touch, cut a hard-boiled egg in half and add it on top.
They say there are 100 ways on how to cook an egg. Now we are not talking about hard-boiled eggs. Here is a delicious recipe that you can try using eggs.
Saute some vegetables and sausages in your pan over medium heat. Once done, form a ring, then crack the egg inside. Add some cheese on top and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Then cover your pan and turn off the heat. Let it sit for around 4-minutes, and then it’s done. A protein-rich meal, done in 5 minutes.
Craving for some Mexican food? No need to order as making a quesadilla is quick and easy. Get yourself some tortilla and add cheese in between. To add some unique flavor, you can sprinkle it with chili flakes and then cook it over a pan in medium heat and wait until the tortilla is crispy and the cheese has melted. Serve it with salsa and guacamole, or you can also eat it on its own.
Delicious Cauliflower Rice
If you are a health buff, then this meal is for you. Cauliflower rice is a great alternative to regular rice as it carb-free.
If you have a food processor, you can either process the cauliflower, or a cheese grater would suffice. Once grated, heat a pan over medium heat, then saute your minced garlic.
As soon as it starts to get a little brownish, add your cauliflower and cook. Add salt and pepper to taste, and there you have it, a healthier replacement to your rice.
There are still tons of recipes you can try that do not require you to spend more than 5-minutes of your time. Remember finishing your schoolwork is your priority as a college student, but you don’t have to do it at the expense of your health. Try allocating a little bit of your time to prepare proper food. Stay healthy and eat properly.
