    Hey,

    so I am looking for a few easy to cook meals. I live in a shared apartment atm and our pots/pans/kitchen stuff is quite limited. I have been making curry and pasta the last 2 weeks but I'm kinda up for something new... I was wondering if any of you guys new some easy meals that I can make without too many different kinds of ingredients.

    Stuff I have

    2 pans, knife, cutting board, salt/pepper, spatula, oven. I like to make a big batch at once so I can freeze it and take it out on other days again.

    So you can see why I am kinda stuck on the pasta/curry with rice dishes.

    Any tips are welcome!

    Thanks

    I have same problem, but found some nice recipes that are very easy.

    Buy pork meat
    a cauliflower or brocolli
    potatoes

    Bake the pork meat until it's slightly brown colour. Cut skin of potatoes and put in boiling water until they are ready (you can put your fork through it and the potatoe falls off). Cut the cauliflower or brocolli into little pieces and put it in boiling water for about 8mins.

    I prefer to do this dish with mashed potatoes. So once they are cooked you get rid off the water, stomp them, add some butter, an eggnog, a bit of nutmeg (it's a herb found easily in grocery store). Start stomping it again and every time you slowly add some milk until it looks mashed enough.

    Then I put all in an oven tray. Meat first, then mashed potatoes and then cauliflower/brocolli. On top of that i'd like to put rasped cheese.

    I usually do this for 2 days. So half of what's in the oven tray, I put in refrigerator and next day just put in microwave or oven until it's hot again.

    This is very tasty dish and takes me about half an hour to make icon_biggrin.gif

    Daelin - Lots of possibilities. What kind of food do you like to eat?

    Do you have limitations, like it has to be cheap, or vegetarian, or vegan?

    I would get a couple more pots/pans - used - like at a flea market or something. You need something to bake in if you are going to use the oven.

    If you want something healthy - it's easy to roast vegetables - just slice them, and liberally brush on olive oil. If you want meat with them, add sliced sausage.

    Buy whole chickens and either roast them or simmer them in a large pot - then cut them up and freeze the pieces you're not eating.

    Fish is easy to cook, but doesn't lend itself to mass cooking and freezing.

    Besides pasta and curry, try preparing a rice mixture (white/brown/wild).

    Risotto can be frozen. Try making one with chicken broth, cut-up squash, and cheese (But is cheese possibly out, because you want a bodybuilder's diet?)

    Buy only good quality extra virgin olive oil. It's more expensive, but the taste is important.

    When I was your age and a student , I didn't cook at all, and lived on boxed dried macaroni and (artificial) cheese. Not at all healthy, but cheap and easy.

    Bon app├ętit.
