Easy recipes to cook at uni

Last two new recipes added...!
Fending for yourself at uni brings with it the inevitable need to cook. You might be able to survive for a while on takeaways, all-you-can-eat pizza and the kindness of flatmates, but after a while you're going to start craving something a bit more 'home comfort'. 

For some fortunate souls, whipping up a storm in the kitchen comes naturally. For others, the mere sight of a saucepan is enough to have them sprinting for the microwave burger section at the 24-hour shop.

Either way, these recipes (shared with us by the lovely folks at Sorted) will help. They're dead easy to make - no random herbs or bizarre preparation needed here - but they're also a bit more interesting than the standard 'oh you're a student, here's how to make toast' rubbish. For one thing, there's a chocolate cake you can make in about five minutes with a mug and a microwave. Yep, really

Throughout Freshers we're adding new recipes to this page, so you can ease yourself into the early days of uni with a bit of decent tucker. Give them a go and - if you've got a great recipe to share - add it to the TSR recipe book (where you'll also find plenty more ridiculously easy ways to eat well).
